OutdoorsRV lower running light seal.

When I got my WR home I noticed that the hole that the wire went through to the lower running light was large and unsealed. So I silicone sealed that hole up. Now I see I missed the lights between and over the tires and there is some moisture in them. When they dry, they get sealed. If they missed mine, they probably missed many. Those nice LED lights don't like to get wet. Also the wires going through a sharp metal hole isn't the best idea long term. What I can see, I can fix. It's what I can't see that scares me.(sealed underbelly)

I had the same thoughts about the underside (enclosed). I had to order a creeper so I can roll around and not slither. The under panels I want to peek into is the Electrical behind the first cross member (possible solar upgrade) and look for and at the manual retract for my slide out.

If you remove that outer inspection cover you will see the next inspection cover. Inside that one is a bunch of wires for the trailer to truck connection and it's not real pretty, but it works. Both covers are sealed with that putty stuff and self tapping screws. As long as everything works, I've seen enough.
