Mikeq, any waterproof silicone sealant should work. I had the same issue will my front light . I used clear!

If using around a light try to use a silicone that does not contain acetic acid, the acid can promote corrosion and further problems.  I use RTV 162 to seal around antennas on the aircraft I work on.

I just noticed that one of my rear lights is full of water and only the top half lights. I just removed the light and it is a sealed component.  Strangely, I can't get the water out. Drill it? But how did it get in? Are the lights permanently damaged? I may have to purchase another light.  Any thoughts?

If I had to guess, the light is not sealed to the unit. Water probably seeped in through the wiring on the back side.  Water most likely did short out the circuits of the leds. Once light is replaced seal with good quality silicone.

My rear LED lights got water in them too. I think they just screwed them in too tight at the factory, there were small cracks around the screw heads. I melted a small weep hole at the bottom using pliers and a small nail heated with a torch, then covered the screw heads with clear caulk. No problems since.

Mikes - did your lights short out? I think I'll have to buy a new light.

I had/have the same issue. Found a direct replacement light at eTrailer which I received, and is  a perfect match. Not cheap though at $28. @mikes - wish I'd thought of that fix and tried that first. Haven't installed it yet, as my light is working, so it's not a rush job. but looks pretty straight forward.
