New Bay Star with condensation in roof running lights

We got our new 2015 Bay Star 3402 last week. I was on the roof today and noticed all of the roof mounted running lights have condensation in them. I also noticed the area where the screw goes in to hold the light fixture down is filled with what looks like a silicon seal material. Are those holes filled with silicon at the factory? I'm starting to worry. Has anyone else noticed condensation in those lights?

You can relax. The manual and my RV tech says condensation is normal inside the lights. They are not sealed like automobile lights are.

Light out?

I have recently discovered that one of my forward roof lights is "burned-out". It's the passenger side light. I haven't climbed on the roof as yet, but I wonder if anyone else has experienced bulb issues? Is it a bulb or LED?

I will investigate this week. In the meantime, I'll keep reading and post a follow up.

Ciao

Hi LCDRAKAllen,
The lights should be LED. All the lights are on the same string. Don't think you can replace just one.
