WhiteHawk Light

Hello all. I have a 2016 WhiteHawk. The 2 led white round lights on the front of the trailer are controlled by a switch on below them. That switch is located below the lights on the fake corrugated front panel and has a clear rubber cover. My question is , is that clear cover required because mine fell off?

Thanks in advance

Mine did too. I had it in for other warranty work and made them replace the whole switch as I was concerned about a possible water entry point.

It's there to help waterproof the switch, since they're on the front and get blasted with spray from the TV when you drive in the rain. The switches will still work fine for a while, until the connections get corroded.

It was in already for warranty and it did it again.

The one thing that comes to mind is, if the back of the switch is accessible, replace it with a toggle switch, and a waterproof cover like this. https://www.grainger.com/product/1UD...DJ3-adType^PLA
