2019 Water in tail lights.

Washed my new Cherokee 2 days after bringing it home and found all 4 tail lights fogged with moisture. Dealership replaced after they got new parts. A few weeks later noticed the same issue although not as bad. Service advisor tried telling me that "some" water in tail lights was "acceptable" and should burn off after a few minutes from the heat from the bulbs. I argued the fact they were L.E.D lights and didn't generate much if any heat. Got the shop Manager involved. He told me to wait a few months until the "bad" replacement lights were all out of Jeeps inventory and then he would change them for me. I returned a few months later with iphone pics to show they were still fogging. I left the Cherokee and a couple hours later was called to come pick it up. I was told at that time that they couldn't duplicate the issue so they wouldn't replace the lights. I went home and washed it and they fogged immediately for me. Here I am a year and a half later still with fogged tail lights. I have done my own research in parking lots when I see another 2019 model and about 50% have a least some moisture in one of the four lights.
Anybody else dealing with this issue?

I’m interested. I just washed my 2019(I’ve owned it 2 months) and one of the taillights was completely fog up. Thanks for starting this thread.
