Whining from the Cheap Seats

Have other 19RD owners notice this one?

The spouts from the rain gutters on both sides of the trailer are centered over the doors to the pass-through storage.

When I opened the hatch in a light rain, yesterday, I got a face full of splatter.

Was somebody not considering all the details when this was designed?

It's not just the 19RD - I have the same issue with the White Hawk.

I agree someone wasn't thinking!

My 33RLDS does the same. I also have a 25% chance of the AC water doing the same..

I can also just twist and duck when opening the hatch when it is raining. Did that the following 3 times I needed stuff. It just surprised me the first time.

Besides, auto-darkening welding helmets do not take kindly to getting wet.

Try the push out window on the 23B right above the pass through door. I have smacked my head on that window almost every time I've camped. It could be me OR it could be a less than adequate design flaw. Agree with the gutters as well. Sorry for side-tracking your thread.

Recheck the title. Not sidetracked yet...

Same problem, but it's not just rain, the AC condensate gets me every time.

I've noticed the same problem. Seems with the TT level, the water flows to the front. Have to come up with an ingenious mod for this. Either that, or raise the tongue a little more.

Unfortunately, there's no other way around this and please the masses at the same time. If they're mounted away from the end storage units and back a little, what happens to the water forward of the spout? It'll drain down the sides of your unit and possibly compromise the storage unit weatherstrip. As far the doors? No way around it and please everyone. Not all doors are rearward or forward. Assuming that's how the alot are on different models. My entry door is in the middle of the trailer and the spouts don't affect it. They put them at all four corners (at least mine are) because it was the best possible place to please everyone. That way, the whole roof is covered, as far as water directed away. The main reason for putting the spouts on in the first place was to deter water from running down the sides of the unit and to direct it away from it. If they adjust them away from doors and storage, then it defeats the purpose of having them. Again, to repel roof water from the entire roof in the best possible way.

Then again, over the doors is just a plain and simple design error. They should've figured something else out in that regard.
