Here's the info about the leaking marker lights. For those who haven't looked close at their lights, there are a couple small notches in the light base. These are there to allow the wire to be routed out from behind the light when it is mounted on a flat surface that doesn't have a hole to run the wire through. Of course these notches allow water to enter too. Most likely if the hole in the camper shell where the wire enters is not sealed good, that is where water will enter. Since we can't see behind the lights on the inside of the trailer, it's hard to say where the leak actually is. Another problem with the lights is that the screws go into a plastic insert, and sometimes those inserts will turn when you try to remove the screws. On a couple lights I had to cut the heads off with my air grinder, remove the light, hold the insert and get the screw out. I then installed new inserts that were square after I filed the holes square. I used butyl tape to seal the lights. Our Uhaul had several leaks, some in odd places and hard to find. I think I finally fixed them all, I THINK!!
