Third brake light waterlogged...
While washing my rig this afternoon, as water was running down the rear cap I noticed the third brake light was filling with water… After I finished washing, I removed it and found that the lens had separated from the body of the light all the way across the top. Like most others, mine has faded to a pale yellow color, but the LEDs glow bright red when lit. I dried it out as best I could, and verified that it still works. I will keep it inside for a couple of days to get the remainder of the moisture out of it, then reseal it with silicone caulk and then I plan to remount it upside down from the original position. I had to do the same earlier this year with a side marker light that was taking on water the same way. I resealed it a couple of times before finally turning it upside down and then having no further problems.
