When the hot lightbulb hits the cold water they will crack. This isn't a problem with newer sealed trailer lights.

I used an off the shelf LED trailer light kit from auto-zone (about $35), I bought some extra wire and ran a ground wire from the plug to each light. No more depending on chassis ground.

I haven't had a light problem since....2 years and running. Well worth the effort.
I did the sam and have had no problems at all & hopefully i will never have to change a bulb again
