Water in one light

We just bought a new 2018 SS262BH 8 days ago. I noticed one of the 3 main lights in the living room was out next to the A/C. So I went to unscrew the plastic dome cover on the light and it is full of water and I mean full, water spilled everywhere. Here is the really odd thing, I removed the 3 screws holding the LED light to see if the insulation was wet and it is not. It is bone dry inside the ceiling. The 3 screws are all rusty and have been for some time from the looks of it. I checked all of the other lights in the RV and found no more water or rusty screws.


I am starting to think that someone from the factory filled the dome cover with water out of spite. Like I said inside the roof is bone dry, no sign of water on the insulation or anywhere that I can find.

I have died everything off really good and have been running the A/C for 2 days and the light is still dry with no sign of water. It also rained yesterday and it is still dry.

Has anyone had this problem?

I don't think an assembly line worker would have time to fill the light fixture with water.

Check that the AC drain is clear and that the AC is snug to the roof gasket. It may be a condensate leak dripping into the light.

Has to be the AC or something dripping. Even if a worked filled with water (which is unlikely), it would’ve already evaporated before you purchased it. My guess is; it’s the AC drain or gasket as mentioned.

I've been running the A/C for a week and we have had some heavy rains and there is no water in any light. I've been on the roof and all looks good. So for the life of me I just can't find where that water came from.

Was it raining when you drove it home? Might be getting in during driving. Just a suggestion.

Funny, I just spent a couple hours inspecting a 2019 262 BH. During my inspection I found the plastic light cover from mid way down the trailer on the kitchen counter it looked like it had water in it at one point but had dried already. I looked at the ficture and roof no eve dense of water. I don't know what to think yet.

What dealer was the RV at? I got mine from Courvelle's RV in Opelousas, Louisiana. Your post really has me wanting to find the cause!

I just brought mine home today, purchased from Pete's RV Center in Burlington VT. Talking with thier lead service tech, the only thing we could come up with is just the right condensation surcomstance while it was sitting. Like really cold to warming up while not ventilated, the aluminum rafters tranfering temperature to the ficture and dripping water. If you find something please let me know, if I do I will share what I discover.
