Sounds like one of two things:
- a loose connection to that circuit
- some othe load is coming on and reducing the voltage to that circuit.

I am presuming that this is on the 12 VDC side.

Open DC fuse panel and see if you have a bad connection at the two fuse terminals. I also think that you have a bad connection and the fuses are a good place to check. Typically a bad connection will generate heat. If you find a bad connection, remove fuse, use pliers to crimp down on fuse socket terminals and replace the fuse. Should be tight pushing in the fuse.

Sorry, I meant to say each fuse has two terminals. I have used an infrared thermal gun to check for heat. You can buy them at Home Depot for about $30.00. Nice tool to have because I have used it to check temperature of tires, poor connections in electrical harnesses and fuses as well as bad wheel bearings in a trailer.

Could be a bad ground for the lighting circuit too. A poor connection doesn't have to be at the fuse end - can be anywhere along the wiring.

Depending on how dim they are it could be normal aging. You might replace one bulb and see if that fixes the problem.

I had to go through and replace several recently when I finally noticed how dim they were compared to the others.
