Leaking water behind pin box

We have a 2018 Eagle HT 27.5 RKDS. We were camping and had some very heavy rains during the night. In the morning, My husband went to remove something from the front storage and got a bath when he lifted the door to latch it and also from an overlap above the storage area on the driverís side. No signs of any leak inside the trailer. I think the lights on the nose, 3 on each side, may have leaked but no proof. Anybody have any ideas??

We have a 28.5 HT with the 3 lights on each side of the front cap. During a heavy rain with wind, The light switches under the front end beside the pin box had water in them. I removed the switches and could see daylight coming from around those front lights. So yes, that is probably where the water is getting in. We will have our dealer seal those when we have it winterized.

Towed trailer to dealer for repair. We sealed the lights on the nose, but decided to have the dealer check it out and repair it. We pick it up 12/1 and will see how it goes the next time it rains..

What can be used to seal those lights? Mine have a little silver ring around them. Do I need to move the ring and seal around the lights and slide that ring back in place?

We used clear flex seal and just ran a bead around the lights leaving the rings in place. The lights were not centered in the holes so we did not want to risk pushing the lights into the nose and not being able to retrieve them.
