2015 Entegra ceiling lights

Good morning all, I was hoping someone could help me figure out a problem I am having with my bedroom lights. For some reason the lights in our ceiling went dim. The lights in front of the washer and dryer and bed headboard are normal but the main ceiling has 6 small 2 recess lights have gone to about 1/2 bright. When I look at the back of the light panel its only 2 wires connected to a circuit board. Way above my intelligence level. Has someone run into this issue that could steer me in the right direction?

Try rebooting 12v power with the salesman switch at the front door. Leave it off for a minute to let the system and touch pad reboot.

Chuck's fix is always the first thing to try.

On my 15 Anthem, the ceiling lights were all LED based lights. maybe in your coach they are incandescent bulbs. If incandescent bulbs, then it sounds like the lights are getting less than 12 volts. On my coach, I can vary the illumination from full brightness to zero illumination continuously. Not sure if you can do that with your Aspire, or not. Another Aspire owner may be able to help better.

I believe all lights in the Entegra went LED in 14 when they had the mid model year up-charge change in July. My Anthem did, I had ordered LED bulbs to change them, but when the coach was delivered all of the lights were LED.

My 2014 Anthem (late 2013 build) all are incandescent. One of my planned upgrades is LED.

Later...

X2 on the 12volt reset.
My 2015 Aspire has dimmable lights thru out. Push push pad once to turn on to last setting....push and hold to gradually dim lights. When minimum level is reached the lights jump back to full brightness.
12 volt reset starts all lights at full brightness.

Interesting, on my 2014 after they hit full dim holding the button will gradually bring them back to full bright.

Ray after July 14 many electrical items changed and operate a little different. There was a $3,600. up-charge in July that took in larger outside TV and entertainment center, BOSE sound systems and all LED lights. When they went all LED, the control panels changed as well. 14 was a weird year for changes, Entegra was still learning how to build a luxury coach and did a lot of trial an error along the way. I owned one and learned the hard way.

So can I replace the incandescent bulbs with dimmable LED ones?

Should work fine. Many earlier 14's replaced theirs. I replaced all of the incandescent bulbs in my 02 Travel Supreme with LEDS, big improvement. Much cooler and no broken filaments on rough roads.

I would check your multiplex controller /fuse panel...mine is in the mid bath closet. If it is labeled as "dimmable " you should be good to go .

I just got in and read through all the posts. It was a huge help as I had no idea the factory installed LED lights had dimmers built in. Thank you everyone as it resolved my issue. You guys are awesome
