Stop/tail/backup LED combo assembly issues

I've found standing water in my combo assemblies on our new 2016 Sunseeker more than once, and decided it was time to deal with the problem before it became a safety issue and/or a water intrusion point in the coach wall.

I found a "new recall" thread in the Forester forums regarding Stop/Tail/Backup combo assemblies that I've been participating in. While this is the subject of a recall for certain issues, the recall apparently addresses a module under the coach that is connected to the lamp assemblies.

Two links: The recall thread:
New Recall!

My experience with the issues I found with my assemblies:

They will warranty the leaky units.
I replaced my own. (1 leaky one)
Siliconed the unit completely, removed the center lense and clear siliconed those in.
The cheapo foam seal they use must seat perfect or it will leak.
No leaks since my repair/replacement

Removed lense, dried and cleaned, and sealed with this stuff:
Expensive - but probably a lifetime supply - and no leaks in about three years since sealing with the silicone paste.
