making trailer lights water tight.best way?
ive had enough of removing the light board whenever i go skiing so have brackets made up for single lights for the trailer.
my question is how do you guys with this set-up seal your lights and cable where it goes in to the light?
silicone?or sumthing else?

is it that hard to try and keep water out of them?
i take it they dont last long when water finds a way in?

I could only find this one picture of the back of my trailer. These fave been bullett proof, are very inexspensive, and easy to install/replace. I have purchased them at a heavy truck parts supply. They consist of a metal L bracket, with an oval hole, that a rubber gasket goes into, and then the sealed light assembly slips into that. The wiring just plugs into the back of the sealed light assembly kind of like an rca jack on your home speakers. They do make them in led's if you want them to be really bright, but those are kind of pricey. I don't know if you can tell from my pic, but the light bracket just bolted up under the spot where the crapy, factory rectanguler water proof lights(not) were. I highly recomend these for price, water proofness(word?) and ease of replacement.
