Check all ground straps to make sure they are clean, tight and the cables are in good condition.

I assume you are talking about lap belts in the coach seating area, i.e. couch, dinette, etc..., you only need ap belts in those locations.

I had the same problem suddenly one night after returning to the HM, constant pulsing of all the lights. Drove me crazy for about an hour as everything looked right. Then on a whim I checked the battery switch near the front door and low and behold I must have accidently switched it. It's right near all the others and I have a habit of blindly reaching over and hitting the switches by touch as needed.

RV's don't require anything but lap belts even for the driver and passenger, let alone the other seating. They're considered a heavy duty vehicle and don't follow the same laws as cars/pickups. However, most RV manufacturers put shoulder/lap belts in the front seats anyway.

Had a similar problem with dimming interior lights, long story short ended up replacing the converter with a new 3 stage converter.

Look at "converter failure" on this forum and you will see the nightmare I went through. Wish it had happened closer to home.LOL

I agree with Bama Fan, your converter is bad and needs to be replaced. That exact same thing happened to me last year.

Once you have the model number of your converter, use TheFind - EVERY PRODUCT * EVERY STORE
to find the cheapest place to buy it on the internet. No sales tax and usually free shipping.
