Flickering tail lights

Brand new AS owner - 2014 International 19' Signature. Hooked up my new Hensley Cub today and am ready to tow for the first time. My TV is a 2014 MB ML350. I noticed tonite my tail lights flicker when plugged into my TV. Anybody know what's up with that? How do I fix it?

This is a known problem with German SUVs used for towing, and has to do with the lower voltage of the trailer's LED running lights/tail lights. My BMW does the same thing. You can have your Airstream service dept wire a resistor into the light wiring, or buy one of these plugs:
