2017 axis 24.1 leak in outside light

It appears I have a water leak in the outside light that's just aft of the door. there was a drip inside behind the front tv that is approx. opposite of the light. there was also some moisture inside the light lens. I removed the lens and removed the 2 screws that appear to attach the light fixture to the wall. The light doesn't move . I don't know how to remove it to check the seal behind it . Help

Bill, We also had a leak that was caused when the top of the porch light became "dis formed". Originally the top was curved and for some reason it sunk down, broke the sea, and funneled water right into the hole the wires come thru the wall. Once I removed all the screws I had to use a putty knife to remove it from the wall. I filled in the hole in the wall with silicon caulk and let it cure for several days before replacing the light. These are pictures of what we had.

Could the heat from the lamp have caused that deformation?

On our coach (same fixture) I believe that "lamp" is an LED--no heat.

Thanks! I didn't know what they were putting in them for bulbs!

Mine is LED. I have to agree that original OP photo was heat melted by a non LED bulb positioned in center of fixture.
