I just got done mine also and put them in sunday and tonight i noticed a small amount of condensation also . i sealed them then resealed them the next day i wonder if its from the rubber boot but it seems to burn off after a few minutes but comes back when the lights are off.

when i did mine i used almost a whole tube on each light. after i siliconed them i took a small ratchet strap and cinched them up to compress the lens back to the body while the seal cured. I have had zero issues.

I pulled mine friday and checked the silicone seal looked good but i redone it to be safe then checked the rubber boots and light seals they all looked good. i did however get a stong paint smell from them inside i had the trim painted at a body shop and they were dry for 4 days before the assm. i think that was the problem so i left them out no bulbs near my pellet stove for 24 hrs i put them in late yesterday so we will have to see what happens.
