Dim Odometer/Info Readout

Precept 31 UL, but probably any F53 and maybe Class C: The digital readout (LED?) is dismal at best. Especially when the lights are on during the daytime, which is required with towing the Jeep and keeping its battery charged. Truly a danger to take eyes off the road long enough to try and make out any reading.



Has anyone come up with a remedy?

Do not have a motorhome but have you looked to see if your display has a dimmer switch.

It does, and it's turned all the way up.

Yes, but we shouldn't have to turn the lights off just to see the readout. There must be a fix for this...

The dimmer on my RAM truck rotates, and when it comes to a stop it has to be forced a little farther and it will then click. At that point the dash lights are brightest when the headlights are on.

Thanks, Bill - think I tried that before, but I'll try it next time I'm at the coach.

We also have this problem in 2019 Precept 34G. Maddening! I haven't found a solution, but would like one.
