Marker lights leaking.

We have a 2017 Sunseeker and have been chasing water leaks almost every bad storm. Most leaks were from lights not sealed properly during installation, or put in wrong. By wrong I mean the marker lights were put on with the weep hole up. We had 4 lights put on with the weep hole up. I suggest you check all your lights to make sure they installed correctly, since the factory doesn't!

Forest River Put this on your check list. It's no fun cleaning water leaks in the middle of the night.

Did you find any of your lenses up side down?

I purchased a 2018 FR Mini Lite 2104S. Within 48 hours, front of camper (both wardrobes) were wet and the bed was wet. Brought it back to dealer and they advised the leak was from the marker lights as well.

Very simple fix. Factory most likely did not use any sealant behind lights.
Pull lens off, unscrew light from body. You will probably see 3 holes, 2 for screws and one for wireing.
Just put a dab of Dicor over each hole and re-install. No more leak.
Did mine within a week of purchasing our Lexi, and that was 4 years ago. Still tight and leak free.
Our Lexi came with LED marker lights. If you have the older bulb "cheapy" type, now would be a good time to upgrade them to LED. Never have to worry about replacing a bulb. Plus, much brighter.
