Awning Attachment/Gutter

Hello,

I am in the process of re-caulking our entire 1999 25' Safari. On one side we have the roof gutter that goes the entire length of the trailer and underneath it there is a small Zip Dee Awning over two windows. This awning has its own rail above it, separate from the gutter. On the other side where the door is, we have an awning the entire length of the trailer and it is installed attached to the gutter. My question has to do with the ends of the gutter where there are brackets for the awning. There is a bracket at each end of the gutter with a (rusted) screw in it that attaches the bracket to the gutter. There was caulk all around the screw. I have been working on cleaning that area today but I am not sure about re-caulking it. It seems that when water runs off the roof into this gutter the only way for it to get out is to overflow the gutter and then run onto the awning fabric. Was this awning installed correctly? Should we replace these screws? Where is the water supposed to go once it gets into the gutter? There are holes drilled in the gutter at each end but as you can see at the left end the water will run out of the hole (assuming it doesn't set plugged, and onto the trailer. On the right end, the water will run out of the hole and onto the fabric. Should I fill in this hole and drill one further to the left so it drains onto the trailer? Thanks for any help!

I am thinking of replacing the rusty screw that attaches the bracket to the trailer. If I take this screw out is the whole awning going to shift?
