Where the light bulb socket goes in to the back of the fixture, there is a gasket, which has probably failed. For many years you have not had a problem so there is no need to drill additional holes. Just replace the gasket after the fixture has dried out and you should be good to go for a long time.

No worries...it's just blinker fluid..... Change it out whenever you change your motor oil... ;-)

While our coach was at Winnebago last summer for some roof resealing, they noticed that all our clearance lights had water in them. These are the ones in the front cap. They put new ones in and gave us one of the old ones. Sure enough half full of water, and you can't shake it out. I carry it with us in case people ever doubt that you need to put blinker fluid in your lights!!

I had the same issue with a slightly older Winny. Turns out that the gasket between the lens and the housing had flattened out, and no longer sealed, regardless of how tight the screws were. I called my online parts place, they sent me two new gaskets for a few bucks, and I cured the problem.

Thanks. I watched it and slowly the water dissipated. I will keep an eye on it and if i have constant trouble will take the actions suggested. I aapreciate the good advice.
