A friend of mine with a 2014 Anthem mentioned that Entegra sent him (at his request) replacement exterior lights that were doing the exact same thing... I am sorry, yet I cannot recall exactly which exterior lights were at issue on his Anthem. He said the factory was aware of problem and was happy to send him replacements (he wanted to perform the replacement job himself as opposed to going somewhere for warranty work, and Entegra obliged him)

I have two lights on my Anthem like that. I noted it at delivery. The tech said it was the detailing guys so I let it pass for now. Since then I have one that we be a good home for a goldfish. I talked to PJ in CS and described it and he sent me two replacements waiting to install. I took one apart one day and noticed a few of the mounting screws were overly torqued resulting in cracking the plastic lens body which, I think, allows in water. I noticed that most of mine have silicone on them where I think the factory attempted to prevent water infiltration. Some of the silicone work is not so good. When I reinstall my new ones I plan on taking them apart one day and neatly siliconing everything. Let it dry. Then attach. I tried siliconing my cracked ones and it was easy to mess up. I also noticed the lights say right or left and the way they are installed on each side leaves a drain hole upside down. They don't produce much heat so I think your safe to silicone the gasket or lens. If and when they burn out, I'll deal with the silicone. I recommend only doing this on a dry day to prevent the condensation.

We have same ongoing issue with dock lights and security lights. Had MHS fix once in June but issue still exists 2 months later. It's way down on the "fix list" for our next warranty visit in November after we head back to Texas for the Escapees RV Boot Camp and weigh in.

Both the left and right rear docking lights have condensation in them. Both the front ones are dry. They have been that way since a few days after delivery.

I had a new set send from Entegra, changed it and pulled the one filled with condensation apart. The gasket was kinked....straightened it out, siliconed it and put it back together for a spare....easy fix.

I had all of mine replaced gratis at the dealer. So far so good with the new ones.

Thanks

The lenses just snap off and the replacement bulb is an 1156. The lens has a tab at the top and two at the bottom. Just pull down on the top of the lens to remove it.

I saw the the security lights are not very waterproof so I replace the bulbs with LED's from ebay. I bought the one with as many LED's as I could find. 2pcs White 27SMD Light Bulbs 1156 BA15S LED Tail Backup RV camper 1141 1003 A105 | eBay

I don't know how well they work in the dark yet, but seem OK in the shade of the hanger.

What Chuck said is correct about how the lens comes off. My security lights are the last ones with incandescent bulbs on my RV just due to laziness swapping them out.
