BR lights flickering

My BR ceiling lights seem to flicker slightly. Not on/off. Just a slight flicker. (Like bright/brighter ) . We have a 2015 Pinnacle.
It is cold weather and we are running the electric logs. Any suggestions?
Of course just want to make sure we are safe.
Happy New Year!
It was good to wake up inside our Pinnacle! 😉

Loose connection? Check the back of the switch. Or it could also be a bad switch.

Are the flickering lights AC or DC?

Do they flicker with electric logs off?

Do you have a way to check the AC voltage to your trailer?

Are they LED lights? When they start going bad they tend to flicker.

Your 2015 Pinnacle lighting is all 12V DC and the bulbs most likely are LED.
Is this limited to one light fixture or all and if all is the flicker in sync?
If it's just one fixture start with the bulb. If it's all fixtures on one switch start with the switch. Next check for loose connections. Bad ground connections have been common issues in some RV's.

Try tightening all the connectors on the back of the light fixture. My bathroom light does this too and I found loose connectors on the back of the light and the wall switch.
