Problem with LMC clear led cab marker lights

I was wondering if anybody else has the same problem with LMC clear led cab marker lights. I have bought four sets for my two trucks over the course of just a few years; the led cab lights always seem to be burnt out or only half of it appears to be working inside a signal cab light. Is there any way to fix this, because I would like for them to work, so I don't have to go back to the amber cab lights.

I should have mentioned they burnt out because they got moisture inside of them. I was wondering if clear silicone is okay to use to prevent the moisture from getting in?

I've heard of swapping the base and using silicone to seal it (swapping base with stock ones)

Personally I would use the clear LMC lens on a factory base then you can use a REGULAR LED that will PLUG in. Not that abortion LMC gives you that you have to cut and splice

The LED board in the LMC lights are crap. I ripped out the LED board from the back side by chopping it up with a dremel. I installed new LED boards from clearance lights.
