Inside lights dimming. Class C Fleetwood

Have noticed that my interior lights will start to dim at times while plugged into outside power. What is the cause and how do I fix?

That has something to do with the converter.

What rv ?? year ? If I had to guess based on the information given I would say your converter is going bad or the coach batteries are going bad.

It can have several causes... Some 3-stage converters,,, I suspect, "Pause" from time to time to test battery voltage.... My Progressive Dynamics does the opposite, it kicks into "Overcharge" every 20 hours or so for a few minutes, This will be seen as a change in 12 volt lights.

The other day I was standing here and suddenly the lights dimmed, one light (A 120 volt) Went out completly.. Then before I could get outside to check they brightened back up.

Turns out Duke Enegery had a crew working here in the park.
