Sounds like bad luck to me. I had a gate arm on a drive thru gate hit mine on my 05 about 2 years ago, I just ordered an aftermarket tail lite from Putco. It was less than 100 bucks and has never leaked a drop. I also have my satellite radio antenna running thru it. All I did when I put in the satellite radio antenna wire thru the gasket was dab a tiny bit of 100% silicone on the gasket where the wire would touch it.
It sounds like your factory tail lite may have just been a bad cast. Make them replace the whole thing and make sure all of the extra wire is pushed thru the hole into the cab so it doesnt interfere with the gasket. If it still leaks see if you can talk them into replacing it with a nice cool looking smoke color LED tail lite.
