Talking Gutter system

Hello all,

I'm new here so hi to everyone. I've searched through posts here before and you guys are very helpful so thank you in advance. The wife and I have a 2019 331bh and love it so far. We have a permanent site here in Ohio and campe nearly every weekend of the weather's above 30. The issue I'm having is with the gutter. Everything is level and it works well for VERY light rains or mistings. We it rain rains though water comes over the gutters, down the side, top of slides and soaks these deck. I put up a lean too deck patio at the site the comes just to the camper. So... Ive been looking for a slightly larger gutter or a rain diverter to to add to the top but there is none and it doesn't seem to be a topic any where. I have the typical aluminum gutter it just doesn't move water fast enough. I've came up with the idea to add rubber trim to the top in a slope to make a water dam type channel and adding a thin piece of aluminum strip to the gutter to deepen it 3/4 on an inch held by rivets but I don't know if this is a bad idea or not. Any ideas or helps appreciated. Thanks guys

I never had that problem. I set the camper a little high at the front, and if I wanted the water to run more on the side away from the door and awning I usually had that side a little high.
With the nose high water should traffic off the back more/faster.

I gotcha. I'll try raising the trailer. The wife's adamant on perfect level so doors don't swing open or close by themselves haha.

We have a gathering of people once a year, and when we do, we put up a lot of canopies. They have pyramid shaped roofs, and we butt them against each other and create a gutter between them with either vinyl gutters, or plastic fastened just inside the roof edge.
Perhaps that would be a more effective solution. Add a gutter under the enclosure you are putting against the RV.
