RV Gutter leak fix suggestions

Any suggestions on how to repair a small gutter leak? It's a small hole above the center of the slide out topper and it drips down to the top of the topper and goes over the topper to the ground. Currently it's about 40 degrees here and starting to warm up.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If it's a butt joint seam it's supposed to be sealed when they built it. Haha! I had one that started to leak a little bit and I went on the roof, was able to peel off the sealant inside the gutter with my fingers and resealed it on the inside with a clear silicon type sealant on my finger. No more leak.

Diddo what Lake Huron said. My gutter is also the awning track, and has a seam right over the main door. It use to leak on my head when I'd go in or out while it was raining. They could have placed the seam at the other end of the trailer and it would have leaked over the bedroom door. Not the ideal spot but better than the main door. Go figure!

I did what LH did - just put a dab of caulk on it and that took care of the leak. Since the gutter is metal, you could also use a dab of J.B. Weld.

Both are awesome suggestions.

I will wait till it gets up to 50 degrees. That's supposed to be on Saturday. Thank you.

You prob want to do it anywhere they have one of those butt seams. Mine were not in a place that caused an issue but after a year I started having those black water mark/dirt lines on the side of the RV that are extremely difficult to remove anywhere there was a butt seam in the gutter. Little bit of caulk fixed it up.
