Right blinker not working

Today we picked up our 3050S after getting a sway bar, stabilizer and some other items. One being a wash/wax. As I was getting on the interstate and went to use the right blinker it wouldn't even show up on the dash let alone in the rear. Once we got to the storage lot I called the dealership we had just picked it up from and they mentioned they have seen that occur in the Solera and some Sunseekers. There is condensation in the light a part itself, we know this because the bottom light is the backing light and the clear section popped out.
Has this happened to anyone else? After a wash, water getting into the fixture and shorting it out?

A number of people have reported that the rear light covers leak causing the bulbs to crack and fail. I had both sides fail on mine. I just thought it was bad bulbs but after the second time I determined the problem was a bad seal or really no seals installed between the cover and the housing. There is no soft gaskets so any warpage of the housing or cover and you get a leak. I made some gaskets but others have used bulb grease effectively. Some others have drilled small drain holes in the bottom of the lens cover to drain any water that may get in. Also there have been reports of similar problems with leaking clearance lights over the cab. Same fix.
