LED lights flickering Jayco response

I sent in a external customer request for possible replacement LED lights that flicker when turn on.

Jayco response was to put in a dimmer switch with a noise reduction. Gave me a schematic and makes no sense to me.

Has anyone had any success doing this?

Thanks

It seems they are saying electrical noise (fluctuations in voltage) is causing the flickering. Is the flickering isolated to one location or is it occurring throught the RV?

What year is your trailer? There was an extensive LED light recall across the industry a couple of years ago. I know that Jayco replaced all the interior LEDs in my 2017. I believe that it was for an overheat issue however.

My TT is a 2018, and a few lights are flickering. They just don't last long and need replacing as needed.

Assuming it is all the lights flickering at once. . .
The replacement dimmer switch will stop the flicker, but won't stop voltage drop that causes it. The voltage drop was solved by removing the offending item from the light circuit. In my case, the furnace igniting caused my lights to flicker. The pump is another common culprit.

Ok more clarification. Out of I think 18 LED lights only 8 lights flicker, when they flicker they are constantly flickering like a strobe light.

My thought is those 8 are defective in my opinion.

Are those 8 on the same circuit? That sounds like what Jayco thinks, based on the dimmer/filter installation.

The circuit would be on one 12VDC fuse. Pull that fuse and see if only those lights go out.

I noticed on our Seneca that the compartment lights and 1/2 bath lights were flickering. Finally noticed that they were on the same circuit and the tabs that the fuse push into were not tight and by wiggling the fuse, I could make them flicker. I took needle nose pliers and gently squeezed the tabs on the converter tighter so that it had a firm grip on the fuse legs. The flickering is now gone, might check the fuse connection that powers these lights.

My dealer installed a “kit” from Jayco to fix the issue in my 2018 MBOK

Finally able to check out the puck LED light circuit as discussed earlier, pulled fuse out and found that one fuse works the lights in the rear and the other works the back lights. Tried the “ squeeze legs” suggestion and that did not help.

Digging a little deeper finding out the LED puck lights Jayco used are reknown to be junk lights, I think I will just replace all of them over time with s new light. Any recommendations out there please .

How do you take apart these 3 wire clips ? I think they call them scotch lock. Could these be the source of my flickering problem?

Thanks

Those are wire taps. One side/end will fold back, exposing the tap plate. The wire just pulls out of the slot in the plate.

But, be careful as you can/could break wire stands.

Several listed here, hard to say best "quality", but have reviews from
some customers...

I had purchased a few from Amazon and one got so hot it melted the lens and was smoking. So glad I was in the RV at the time. Of course, I reported it and got them replaced. I now check them when new and periodically check them. No issues since.

I had to replace 4 of the LED lights in my 2017 Greyhawk, Jayco never did except any responsibility even though there was indeed a recall. I picked up some replacement lights from Amazon and my problem was fixed. And yes two of the lights did flicker before totally failing.

Hope this helps

I had the same issue on my 2016, but it turned out to be the water pump was on the same circuit <really?>, just ran a dedicated line for the pump to fix it.
