AFTER unplugging the RV first if you mean the power panel in the RV.

could also be your converter on the way to failing......thats what happened with ours...lights started dimming and then goin back to normal .... kind of like someone was dimming lights continually. Check the converter output with a volt meter.

First eliminate the pedestal. Unplug your RV and plug a lamp into the plug see if it flickers. If it does you know the problem is there.
Are you using a good surge protector? They will indicate if you have an open somewhere or an intermittent. Then try the suggestions above.

Good luck.
