house Lights flicker

I'm experiencing a slight flicker or pulsing of my couch inside lights. It is plug in to my 50amp at the house and I've never experienced this before. The lights burn bright but they each have an annoying pulsing or flicker. Could this be my converter/inverter? I have a DP Damon MH.

Could be a problem with the converter/ charger, or battery condition or connections.
How old are the batteries ? RV ?
How quick is the flicker ? Seconds / Minuets ?
Florescent , or bulb fixtures, or both ?

Unplug from the 120 volt ac. If the lights stop flickering, the converter is at fault. If the lights continue to flicker, you probably have a loose connection somewhere. I am assuming that the lights we're discussing are not fluorescent. I hope this helps.

I would check your chassis batteries for proper water

then the wiring connections at the battery and the back of the inverter charger.


trust me......you will be surprised at how these wires seem to get loose
