Marker Light Grommet?

Shot in the dark for the experienced. My Elite 19RB has little round amber LED lights at the two upper front corners facing forward. I noticed from the ground today that one of them has some 'white' showing between the amber lens and what I think is the black grommet that holds the light in place. Wasn't prepared to get up there today, but they really look like trailer or fender lights that are held in the hole with a rubber grommet. I would think fairly standard, but I am not sure how standard.
No luck on the trekwood site. Anyone know how that light is held in place for sure, what kind/brand of grommet, if not all standard, and a source? I see some grommets at etrailer but not sure if they all fit all.
If I can fix with one trip up the ladder all the better on this end.
Thanks

It's probably similar to this red clearance light. As you can see, there is a rubber grommet that fits into a hole in the RV skin and the light assembly then slips into the grommet.

You can see from the photo how it fits together and you can find the amber ones on the Trekwood site at : https://www.trekwood.com/products/11...4-Amber-200-Bx

Thanks. I guessed it was fairly standard and similar to lights on boat trailer. Your link led me to this light https://www.trekwood.com/products/11...-Uni-Light-Red which looks to be what is actually on my TT. Optronics has standard and sealing grommets, but I have been unable to find any source for the sealing grommets, or a complete replacement light with a sealing vs a standard grommet.
I did find some standard grommets at etrailer https://www.etrailer.com/Accessories...ics/A11GB.html. If they don't appear to seal good enough I will install with some silicone. Silicone appears to be how all the other lights (non Led) are sealed. The new grommets should look better than the torn one.
Thanks

Don't use silicone. Use DICOR non-self leveling, Sika-Flex or another polyurethane sealant. Anything with silicone in it will make reapplications or touch-ups impossible as silicone will not stick to itself.

OK, must be a clear polyurethane around the other lights. I knew silicone was a no-no on the roof.
Thanks again
