Non dimmable LED's dim when a 2nd set is engaged

We have a 2017 Allegro Bus 40 SP... 1st scenario- When the Button for the task lights is pushed they only seem to come on 1/2 the normal brightness...then while they are on and the ceiling led accent light button is pushed they dim even further...2nd scenario...With task and accents off...In either bathroom a ceiling light button is pushed they are 1/2 the normal brighness then if a variety light button is pushed both seem to dim even further. This is happening on the non dimmable lights on the bus.....My thought is a bad main spider switch touch screen panel on the bedroom wall...when pushed it seems change color under finger pressure...Ive tried the 12 V reset and that didn't help...your thoughts ?

Don't have any answer for you but suggest you post your issue on the Tiffin RvNetwork website. I am sure someone there will have ideas for you.

Rodney;

That sounds like it might be a low voltage problem to the circuits. You might try pulling the main Spyder panel in the bedroom and check all of the molex connectors on the back. Sometimes the connections don't get pushed all the way into the plugs and are just barely making contact. Also, you might pull one of the LEDs out of the task lights and check the voltage to the fixture.

EDIT: Looking at the Spyder pinouts for the 2017 Bus and Phaeton, the rear bath, mid bath and task lights are on the same connector, #4. If it's not a connection, then circuit board "B" may be defective.

I never realized my lights were adjustable. My wife showed me how when a light set is turned on, it has a default setting. By pushing the on button additional times after the lights are on, they get brighter. What a neat system

Another trick of the Spyder system is with the power roof vents. If you just push the button they open, but if you hold the button down for a second or two the cover will start to open and you just release the button when it's open as far as you want. That way you don't have to open all the way if it's raining. This only works on '16 and newer Spyder systems.
