I remember seeing someone on here that installed a drip rail/rain gutter on the front nose of their cabover, but I cannot find the post in numerous searches? I just purchased 25' of flexible RV rain gutter with 3M automotive adhesive on the back to make a drip rail to help keep my trucks windshield cleaner (chalky crud on the windshield) and also a piece over the sliding window between the cab/camper to help keep rain out while driving.

If anyone has done this modification or can find the post I'd really appreciate any tips.

Thank you, that was the thread about the leaking front slider. I also remember seeing a photo of a drip rail on the front nose of the cabover like this.

I missed the original thread on this subject or I would have thrown my $ into the mix. I had a problem with my Lance soon after I bought it. To fix the problem I bought some thin narrow window foam and just added it to the factory foam. That fix has been in place about 12 years.
Another problem was that when I opened the doors on my Chevy 2500 in the rain water would drip onto the window controls, fixed that with flexible gutter. That's been installed about 9years.

Now here is something I came up with a few years ago. My Lance has slider windows when it rains, well it rains in. I went to the locale auto parts and bought a set of Vent Shades, they stick on with 3M tape. Now I have lost two of them from wind after they were on after about 6 years. The third is still with me. They did not correct the problem fully but they did help some.

Here's what I used to stop the drips onto the windshield.

Finished cleaning the exterior up and then finally getting my gutters installed on the front nose and above/below the slider behind the cab.
