RV lights blinking

The lights in my Forester blink when on. Didnít do this at first, but started after a while. Not all, but enough to make you not use them. Replaced the led bulb in some and they still blink. Doesnít matter if on battery or shore power. Any ideas?

Blink.......like off and on?

Or....

Flicker?

Either a bad ground, or weak batteries, or your converter is suspect.

Blinking / flickering lights

Flickering is better description.
Eliminate batteries, as they test strong.
Thank you for reply, Iíll recheck ground around batteries, only place I know to look. Any addition tips on ground?
Inspected converter and found no problems.

Is it all of them, or just some? If just some, try pulling out the bulb and putting it into a fixture that is not flickering. If the bulb still flickers, it is the bulb. Spend some $$$ and replace with a good quality bulb. If it doesnít flicker when moving to the other fixture, I would check the ground wire on the first fixture.

I have given up on cheap LED bulbs and started buying from one of two online companies for LED bulbs. SuperbrightLED and M4 products. Most recently, the later has done a great job with quality bulbs that have not flickered in months of everyday use.

When mine were flickering I replaced them and it took care of the problem. Some new ones might come not working well either. My experience.

.

Just had to replace a 120vac LED at home for doing that too, = bad bulb (p.s. NON-dimmable home LED bulbs will also intermittent STROBE if connected to DAY/NITE sensor, (such as outside wall/ porch light), but DIMMABLE LED bulb will work fine, I believe..
