2019 XCR Dash flashes background light

When our 2019 Dutchstar is off we occasionally see the FL electronic dash flash like a backlight "glow". It only lasts a few seconds and you can only see it when it's dark.

Mine does the same thing. Late at night, about once or twice a trip while watching the TV in the dark, you'll see it flash. I recently asked Freightliner about replacing my dash because the temp gauge reads low, even when the coach is running very warm. The digital gauge that you can select in the center of the dash, shows the right temps, but the gauge with the needle is way off. They told me this was normal.

I haven't seen or heard about a recall for the flashing, but now that I've found someone with the same issue, I will call Freightliner.

I caught it happening twice in my 6 months of ownership. Didn't give it much thought. It happens so fast and out of the corner of my eye that I wondered if I was imagining it. But now I will mention it when I visit FL for my 6 month appt.

I've been told some things were "normal" but I had my doubts.
