Can't help on the new window issue, my 2014 still has the old kind. Thinking i will add some kind of gutter spout extension but haven't settled on how. Post pics when you complete yours.

Gutter Drains on White Hawk

As soon as I get up on the roof and measure the diameter of the gutter spouts and attach a drain hose, I will post some pics to help others.

I figure if I go to Lowe's or Home Depot I can get a section of hose and a couple of hose clamps (the screw type) it might possibly do the trick...On the window...that will be trail and error...first I have to drill out the rivets and find screws/nuts to replace it.

When I level my trailer it is slightly nose high so the water runs off the back of the trailer

I attached some plastic gutter extensions on my TT and does a fairly effective job of directing the water away from the TT sidewall.

I believe Walmart even sells them.

But as Nighthawk96 mentioned, I always leave a slight pitch to my TT as well.

Had water get in our 2014 WhiteHawk 30DSQB back storage compartment and in the outdoor kitchen after rains initially after we bought it in February....I made a very slight adjustment on the latch by bending the metal locking mechanism and also made sure I locked the doors as well, which I had not been doing.....simply made the doors a little snugger when they closed.....haven't had a problem since.

Gutter Spouts

Okay everyone that has responded on the basement leak.
Went to Lowe's today and got a 14' of clear 1-1/2" hose ($22.00!) a couple of 1-3/4" hose clamps....clamped one end to the gutter spout and ran the rest of the length under neath the TT.
I was going to just extent the hose out a few inches to one foot but, I would run into the same problem...water running down directly in front of the basement hatch!.So, whoever had the brains to have the gutter spouts directly over the hatch door needs to go back to engineering school.

Now the fix on the window was to drill out the rivets....replace them with stainless hex bolts, washers and nuts....As I mentioned the ONLY way to get the rollers that are attached to arms, back ON the window track is to completely remove the mechanism completely....which meant removing the rivets.....Another bright idea from Jayco engineers. :-)
I made sure and used hex bolts because you can tighten them down more securely than use phillips/slotted heads.

I have attached pictures of what I accomplished this fine Fall day in the Puget Sound area...hope it gives others an idea what it takes to be a full-timer and scout around having to take your RV all the way to a dealership....which in my case is a long ways away!

Happy & Safe RVing!
Stephan & Sally
