Look on the bright side. After a week long 2,000 mile trip all is well. Even though I actually enjoyed the entire experience, I should have never had to experience it. The trailer should have been built better to start with.
I will post "the list" at some point. Too bad I deleted the pictures of all the screw-ups.

Why not have a chat with the bean counter out in the parking lot.

They missed this one- or the new one already has moisture/condensation in it.

m.honey, they may not have missed anything there but a bubble may have opened in the sealant. I had that. First look for a tiny opening somewhere. If this fixture is under the end of an awning, lots of water will drain over it.

Also, ours were properly installed with no sealant on the bottom side to drain. Is it sealed all around? If not it is possible to direct a hose on the bottom side and force water into it. It should drain back out but it might take forever to clear the moisture.

Rather than removing and resealing one of mine, I drilled a tiny drain hole near the bottom of the aluminum base to drain the water (plenty came out) and another near the bottom of the plastic lens to clear the condensation. It dried out and after a couple weeks I put a little dab of sealant in the drain holes. If it happens again I can poke out the sealant to dry.

Some call this sort of thing lack of quality, I just view it as routine maintenance like on everything else we own.
