JW Speaker 8700 headlight problems

I have had these installed on the Jeep for a year. I now have both headlights with water vapor inside the headlight.
Is this a common problem? Is there a fix?
I expect in the winter I will end up with ice on the inside of the light.

im not 100% for the answer but i had the same problem last winter. It happened once, it was a long trip lights where on for 3-4 hours. I woke up in the morning and the vapor was gone. Havent had vapor since. I was told it was normal by a friend that knows about head lights. I have the same lights.

I had this issue. My vendor replaced them and haven't had an issue since. Apparently the early version did this under certain conditions.
