Tail Lights-Travel Trailer

I continue to have a problem with one of the bulbs on my travel trailer tail lights. The bulb connection corrodes and the bulb stops working. I can scrape the bulb connections and it works until it gets wet and corrodes again. Is there a fix for this?

First step would be to find out where moisture is entering the tail light housing. Then seal the entry point(s) and replace any gaskets. Give the socket and contacts a good cleaning and then apply a thin coat of silicone grease to the socket, contacts, and bulb base. This should either cure or greatly reduce your lighting problem.

Ken, give up and go led. I did that on my jobsite trailer, and on my headache rack on the work truck. I know they are expensive, but worry free, basically.
