LED Light Problem

I have a 2016 Flying Cloud from day one the interior LED's in forward portion have flickered at times. This last road trip at times they would not go to bright and with the dimmer switch on full bright adjustment they appear to be at the lowest setting. Then other times nothing at all. Then out of blue they work fine.
My battery levels are 13.7 the Leds in bedroom section work fine all the time. I'm suspecting a defective switch. Any ideas?

Sounds like the dimmer to me. This is why you have the warranty.

I have a 2016 EB and had 4 LEDs fail inside the trailer. they sent me replacements with no issue which I installed bc it wasnt worth towing it back in for something so easy to change. But I was very surprised at the failure rate.

I am having the same problem with my 2008 Classic. The reading lights in dining area and bedroom flicker with both the original bulbs and the replacement LED bulbs. So if the dimmer is bad, I assume I need to replace the fixtures.

Flickering Lights

Mine turned out to be the fuse at the switch. The filament was acting like a Pendulum. Never seen such a thing in all the years I worked on vehicles.
Either they worked or did'nt. Worth a look at. Let me know what you find.

I'm not what you are referring to "the fuse at the switch"? The only fuses that I am aware of are the fuses in the inverter. I have also noticed some times the dimmer on the reading lights don't dim the LEDs but other times they do. The flickering seems fairly constant.

Fuse Location

As you walk into the unit the switches are on your right open the door closest to the switch in question. Take a flash light and look behind there and you will see a inline blade type fuse holder. Remove fuse and inspect it. I believe mine was a 5 amp blue fuse. Like I mentioned before all the years in the auto trade never seen a fuse behave as it did. The piece acted like a pendulum. Let me know what you find.
