Any Winnie owner added this product from to the Moho gutters or across the front windshield to keep the water from running straight down and leaving streaks? Any comments appreciated.

On my 2000 Suncruiser 35U I added that flex U-channel gutter stuff (from CW). Was messy, did not look good (maybe my application technique) and left black streaks. Did not do it again on my current rig, but did add the plastic gutter extenders (previous posts).

I want to try the J-channel stuff on the glass above my entry door to channel rain that leaks behind the door awning to one side of the other ...but I can't find any!! Do you know where to get it?? (it is not the adhesive gutter stuff Camping World sells ...and that is all I can find online)

Paul: two places you may check are:
crlaurence.com and
spindelco.com
In searching around yesterday I found a automotive store that had many gaskets and channels for cars etc. You think I can find it now thought I saved it but evidently not.
Maybe this will give you what you are looking for...Good Miles...Jim

The fellow next to us added a strip of this all down the left side of his coach just yesterday. Like Paul, I want to add about a three foot piece but above the driver's window to get rid of the streaks on the glass.

I tried the plastic gutter ends from camping world on my Suncruiser to try to elimuinate the water that runs down my neck when using the driver door. They wouldn't work! I haven't tried anything -yet on this coach.

Wonder why Winnie hasn't figured a way to not "wet me down".

Go to Lowes or Home Depot or local building supply place and you will have to buy a 10' to 12' section of vinyl J Channel, and then cut it to size you want and trip the nailer hole section with a knife to level of the chanel edge and put double back tape, like you use to hang a picture and fasten it below the water gutter above your driver door, so it drains to the front of the door. I have that on my Adventurer and it work great , and only cost you a few dollars, or maybe you can get a small section from a local siding contractor for free.

Saw a Lowes today in our adventures around the Branson MO area, so stopped and found J Channel in white, ivory and light gray vinyl. It was bulkier than I want to put on my side window (even if I cut off the nailing area), but on the way out of the store I found "J Trim" ...less bulky and without the nail holes. It might be what I want, but I was hoping to find black. I'll keep looking ...at least now I know what I think I am looking for!

Bill

I notice in your pics you call it "J Bead." Where did you get it, and exactly what did they call it?

It's sometimes called J-Channel and sometimes J-Bead. I bought mine at Lowes. In most Lowes stores I have seen it's located in the area of the drywall material. You can also purchase it at places that sell vinyl siding. Do Google search for J Channel, it comes in many colors and a couple sizes.

Here's another DIY project you might find a use for: Storm door
