LED's flickering.

Help, replaced all 12 volt lamps with led 12 vdc. They start flickering. Thought it was because of the inverter. Checked it out, everything seems ok, out put voltage is between 13.2 to 14 vdc. At 1 lamp I am getting 13.7 vdc & 38.6 vac??? Don't understand that. Has anyone have a clue what is going on? I have a vintage, 77 model avion.
Anything would help. Thanks in advance.

If you have the inverter output connected to the 12 volt system, I could see why the lights are flickering. I'm surprised they haven't blown out from the 120 volt output.

Sounds like you have a very dirt power supply. Try shutting the power supply off and see what happens with just the batteries.

I'd start at the beginning. Did you do the work yourself, if so did you change any wiring. Most of the 12 volt is daisy chained. Next replace a bulb or two see if it still flickers.

I think the choice now is to remove, test, and replace one bulb at a time. This will yell if one of the bulbs has a problem that may be effecting other down stream.

I have had one section of an LED ribbon strip start to flicker but it did not effect the rest of the strip

Flickering Lights

Do all the lights flicker or is isolated either in front or rear inside coach?
