Condensation in Clearance Lights

The 5 clearance lights on the front of my Allegro Open Road 32SA have significant moisture visible in them. These are the newer style LED clearance/marker lights. They appear to be installed properly and well-sealed. At least I can't see any obvious points of entry for water. The 5 lights on the back of the coach are clear of water.
The Service Tech at the dealer said he has had mixed signals from Tiffin & other manufacturers that use these lights. Some say replace while others say it's not a problem. Regardless, I will have these replaced and sealed. What I hope to hear is if anyone has any knowledge of this being a common problem with these LED clearance lights. Should I expect to have this happen again? Just curious.

Geocel 28100v RV sealant.

Use this stuff but use soap "dawn" on your finger to work this stuff. Do not use caulk. I was a caulk guy till I used this stuff. Thanks, Joe

A few years ago Tiffin's had this problem. In some cases the moisture was blowing the in-line fuse feeding these lights. Finding that fuse was a PITA on some rigs. I had 3 bad ones on my Bus that I replaced, but never replaced the fuse as it didn't blow.

Had to replace all the front ones on mine when a year old. I believe they were torqued too tight as there is slight curve on front cap which broke the seals as they are 2 piece. No problems since.

That makes sense. There is definitely more curvature on the front of the coach than the back. Thanks.
