Gutter extension mod/repair

Discovered that my cover and the original gutter extensions on my X17Z did not want to work together, kinda surprised the cover won.
It was just the rear one that was messed up, it didn't break, but was twisted. I changed the rear one today and used a much shorter version to which a separate extension can be put on and taken back off before the cover goes on. Not a huge mod, but could be a helpful idea. While the front didn't seem to have as much of an issue, I will also convert it, if for no other reason than to keep from putting a hole in the cover.

Good idea if you cover your trailer. I was watching the icicles on my gutter extensions last weekend. I wondered if the ice could build up enough to break the extension.

I doubt they would break off, they are actually fairly tough, the problem with the cover is it sort of pulled it up and in towards the front. It was basically pointed up instead of down. I probably could have waited until it was warmer and maybe heated it with a hair dryer to reshape it, but it would just happen again next winter. I can also tell you they are on there pretty good, it took a little work with a utility knife to get all the sealant cut loose.

Gutter

When I cover my 19h I put tennis balls on the gutters, I have not had a problem in two years now.
