Gutter Solutions?

After reviewing a few previous posts on related topics, I am curious if anyone has installed the EZE RV Gutter (or similar products)? And if they work as expected to control the water runoff from A/C and rain.

Ive been looking at it also. Seems good but i need to climb up on the roof to get an idea of where ill put it.

I like that it can also be wrapped around windows which should eliminate streaks

Interesting. I hate how condensate runs off sides, especially the awning when it's out. Gonna have to check this out and see if this would work.

I installed RV gutter on the Tuscany we had, black streaks were a huge problem from AC condensation. I ran the gutter the entire length along the edge of the roof with a short spout at each end, worked great. I haven't noticed the streaking problem on our Windsport but it has frameless windows and the Tuscany didn't, not sure if that is a contributing problem or not. Time will tell.

It's amazing the things you take for standard on a RV are completely missing on Thor motorhomes. I owned 3 different brand travel trailers before we bought our ACE and all had gutters on both sides.

After camping this weekend on a not very level site, and unable to put a slight left lean on the MH to keep the drip away from the entrance door, we are definitely going to put some sort of gutter or drip rail on at least from the awning over the door area. I was looking at this:

before we left and may pull the trigger on it this week.

Gutter or drip rail on Axis

Looking at our 2017 Axis 25.5, I can't see how I could install Trim-Lok vinyl drip rail on it. On the passenger side, the awning is mounted right under the roof edge, so its in the way. And, on driver's side, the slide awning is also butted right up against the roof edging. Anyone found a way to mount drip rail to their Axis/Vegas?

mine is the same way. There are only a small few feet of wall with no awning or slide topper, where I could put it.

I did buy a short length of it a while back intending to use it as a drip edge to divert water from running down the back wall on the tail lights, but have yet to install it. Stupid purchase I guess....

I really like the EZ Gutter. I did have a huge problem with rain or AC water always pouring right down in front of where you need to enter the vehicle. Now most all water is diverted to the four corners of the RV. I feel like they are pricey but well worth the money.

I put it on my Hurricane, was a waste of time and money do to the J-Rail that goes around the RV at the roof. The J-rail causes the moisture to run over the gutter most of the time. What I need is a gutter that will slide into the j-rail.

Different strokes one manís treasure etc. I do admit the EZ Gutter is not designed for massive amounts of water. ✌️ Peace out
