Blinking LEDís

Iíve read on other forum(s) about the LED lights flickering when the dimmer is turned down. Iíve read many theories about the problem.
This is an observation on my part. The only lights where I was experiencing this issue was the bad room main lights. Iíve posted in the past that my lights were in the bad batch of lights and Command Elec. sent me 50 replacements and that Iím replacing them as needed. Recently I had to replace one of those lights. After doing so, I noticed that that specific light no longer flickered when dimming the lights. So I replaced the 3 remaining main ceiling lights. I can now dim the lights to the lowest position with no flickering. One problem solved.

Now if I can ever get Toilet water level reset Iíll be happy (the published procedure doesnít work and the control module has already been replaced.

Perfect example of why I chose a standard Dometic 320 toilet.

John,

The best deal I could get out of command electronics is $5 a board. Iím waiting on a batch of ten to come in and Iím already up to six that have started their strobing since I ordered. I pulled the cover off one of my burnt out ďscare lightsĒ and discovered it uses an 1156 bulb just like my old '65 Chevy. Iím sooooooo not impressed with command electronics products.

For your toilet issue try resetting the level while running your water pump. I canít get mine to fill all the way at parks with low flow. And if I wash my hands while the toilet is filling it will not fill properly.

RV lifeís a bitch ainít it? (He said while sitting outside drinking coffee listening to the birds sing, the brook babble and watching that lone squirrel forage for nuts.)

I have 60 replacement LED's from Command.
Replaced about a third so far and some of those have started blinking.

BTW, to make change out easier I'm using the WAGO connectors. Better then stripping and crimping.

Toilet - the level is based on time. If you set it when pressure and flow is good, the level will be low when pressure is insufficient. I set mine with the water pump

Those WAGO connectors look great. Just ordered a box. Thanks Duane.

Amazon has a replacement 1000 Lumen LED for the scare lights for 30 bucks. It’s made by Leisure LED. On my list of potential things to get.

Phil,
Try using the LED 1156 replacement bulb from M4 Electronics.

Roam America,
That 1000 lumen should really perk up the outside at night--just a 500L LED did wonders for vision at night for me.

I picked up some LED 1156 bulbs at autozone. Not sure what lumens they are but they’re definitely a big difference.
