Flickering overhead lights

We own a 2017 JFlight SLX 21QB. The overhead lights are 4 1/2 inch dome LED lights. They have individually begun flickering which is hugely irritating. We have replaced several of them. No sooner do we replace a light than the next one flickers. Is anyone else experiencing this and is there a solution other than replacing every light?

Common problem, yes. The LED's themselves are likely fine, but the other cheap electrical components fail, leaving you with a disco atmosphere, annoying radio interference, or both. Not knowing your exact lights, or your tolerance to messing with things, you might be able to just replace the LED module with some research and tinkering.
Maybe these?

Had a similar problem with one bank of lights. Turns out it was on the same circuit as the electirc water heater. Reset the heater (turn off and on) and fixed the problem.

Hope its something as simple for you

Yes, and slowly I have replaced them all.

If they look like the attached picture, these were recalled due to a fire hazard. I had multiple go out in my 2017 Greyhawk and after looking on line I found the recall. Jayco never bothered to alert me.

When mine failed I was able to repair each. Found bad connections where the power wires connect to the board. Connections sort of burnt and weren't making contact with the circuit trace on the board.

When I found out about the recall I contacted the manufacturer and they sent me enough new light boards to do my entire rig. Guess I lucked out that they failed and I found the recall. Haven't had any problems with the new lights which have more LEDs on them and run cooler.
