Hi all,

I'm going to have my mobile home painted and am trying to clean up the outside of my home. My outdoor lights on the side of the home have globs of caulking all around them due to the large gaps around the lighting. Does anyone have any recommendations for something that I can put around the lights to cover the caulking or something to buy to mount the lights on? My mobile home is a 1988 single wide with the vertical metal on the sides.

Mount one of these to a stud. Much better than the usual mobile home systems.
