Water in rear tail light

I get water in rear drivers tail light with rain. From the outside, everything looks good and aligned. This has also caused some erosion, because I can see rusty water inside when it's wet. The water evaporates when dry, so there's a gap somewhere. Any suggestions? Heading to Airstream...want to make sure they correct and repair and don't want a back and forth between Mercedes and Airstream.

Ive heard that some people will drill a small hole at the bottom of the tail light for water drainage.

Yep...especially with LED's,(no heat to rid the H2o).
The main reason all "Cloudsplitters" teardrops are still incandescent with a hole.👍
