Tail Lights Shorting Out?

Last week we left Cali for AZ and notices that the right turn signal wasn't working. Picked up two new LED's at the LA Airstream and installed it. After a week at Quartzite and a few days in Yuma we were ready to return home when the right tail light was out again. Replaced it with the second one and returned home. While parking it noticed the tail light was out again.

It's 2018 International with about 10k miles on it. The leads to the light dive into a small rubber grommeted hole inside the body shell. It seems there is no way to get to inspect the wires for torn sheaving.

Anyone have an experience like this?

Vinnie at North Bay Airstream Repair has found this issue on several models of Airstream trailers, including mine. He was able to access space under shower pan from the underside of the trailer. Vinnie is in Wilton Ca. 707 978-0356
