2017 Phaeton LED Ceiling Lights
 
I have a 2017 Phaeton 40AH and over the last couple of months have been experiencing issues with the LED ceiling lights. First one of the lights will start flickering, gradually getting worse and will then eventually go dimmer. This can be very annoying as it is basically a strobe light for quite a while. This happens on multiple zones and at different stages of dimming. Tiffin has been great about sending replacement lights which fix the problem but I've replaced six so far and now have three more going out. Either there was a bad batch of light fixtures or maybe a power problem...? Just curious is this is limited to me or if others are having similar issues.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
John

Just noted that one of my led lights in the bedroom has started flickering. Coach is going in next Tuesday so it will be on the list.
So it looks like I will have many more to look forward to, great....

On my 2013 Phaeton 40QBH I had a light failure midway on left run in living room. Local tech found a bad wiring plug connector. He cut out and replaced wiring connector and problem solved.

2014 Phaeton. I have replaced three LED "bulbs". The lights have multiple LEDs on each and just one of those going out is enough to require replacing the entire "bulb" ( what the heck do we call those)?)

We have a 2017 Phaeton 40AH and have 2 LED lights in the process of warranty replacement.

LED Ceiling Lights - Update
 
I spoke with a Tiffin electrician and he indicated that they did not know of any problems with the LED ceiling lights. He did say that they did had some issues a few years ago but attributed it to a bad batch of lights.

Parts is sending me more replacement lights which they have been great about. The part number for mine is 5045774 in their parts store and I've included a link below to their site.

They are a pretty easy swap to do. Just hoping I don't have to swap all of them....

Hope this helps,

John, I don't know if this is your issue, but Spyder has a known problem with some coach's lights flickering caused by the water heater. Since you are saying it is on multiple zones, it doesn't sound like bulbs. If you have an Aquahot system, this probably doesn't apply to you.
Here is a link to the Spyder schematics for the 2016 Phaetons (they haven't posted the 2017s yet) and the flicker fix. The user name is Tiffin and the pw is Motorhomes (plural).

Our Phaeton will be one year old next week. We haven't had any problems with the LED lights. We have the Aqua Hot.

LED Lights
 
Thanks for the information and link. I do have the aqua hot but will try whatever I need to.

Thanks again,
John

Update...

I received the replacement lights from Tiffin and have replaced more that were flickering or completely out. What worries me is that two of the ones that I replaced were ones that I had previously replaced... Voltage was measured on each location at 12.7 volts. I'm saving the bad ones now though so I can let Tiffin test them.

2017 tiffin led ceiling lights
 
I have a 2017 tiffin Allegrobus 5 months old and I have replaced 9 bulbs so far! And I have 2 more flickering which happens before they go out. Tiffin has been great at sending new bulbs but I wonder if these bulbs are an issue!

I have a 2016 Newmar Dutch Star, three months after purchase 36 light burnt out, Newmar sent me 57 light and told me to replace lights

jgmontg 07-31-2017 11:12 PM

I've now got three more that have started flickering. I plan to talk with the Tiffin folks tomorrow to see if they have any ideas. I'm getting worried that the ones they send me are also bad. I'll provide any updates as I find out more.
