Gutter Spouts with Extensions

Gave these to my hubby as part of a birthday gift along with Max Air Vent Cover he installed the vent cover and likes it but was very reluctant to break all the seals around the vinyl trim to install the new spouts which are supposed to stop the black streaks on the TT walls.

Is it worth it or is it better to leave things the way they are.

I've got them on my trailer - dealer installed, mind you. They do seem to reduce the black streaks somewhat & help channel the water away from the sidewalls.

Worth it? Dunno...if I didn't have them I'm not sure I'd go out and buy them specifically, although if my dear wife went through the effort and bought them for me I'd certainly put them on. (I don't like sleeping on the sofa....)

I don't use them, I have heard of them falling off after awhile and some crack and change color. As for black streaks spray them with full strength Mr Clean just before you wash your RV. Comes right off.

Ours came with our unit. We ordered our tt from the factory and was surprised to see them on there (we didn't order them) while other 2010's in the dealers lot didn't have them. We like them and they do work for us. We had the streaks before on our previous tt and were lazy about cleaning the streaks faithfully, so for that reason, we are happy we have them

Use clothes pins instead ...

Since we use a storage cover, we didn't want to install the extensions - thought they would either break off or punch through the cover. Got an idea from another forum to just clip a spring clothes pin on the spout. Works like a charm, and just pops off when it is time to put on the cover. I try to remember to take them off before traveling, but have forgotten some times, but never lost one in transit ....

Even if we did lose one, its only a clothes pin!

I wash my trailer, and TV every time we return from a trip. Removing bugs from the front side of the trailer is always fun. As for the black streaks, they come right off as long as you don't let them sit.

Mine are the snap on kind. They install easy over the existing tiny gutters. On my last TT I had the kind that went in behind put them on and never had a problem with water in the inside.
