Interior lights flickering

I am plugged into power and replaced the bulbs with LED. However some of my lights are going in and out. Why would they do that?
I have a 1991 star ray T220.
Thank you in advance

I had a similar problem on one of my older campers and found it to be a dirty ground to the frame. Cleaned the frame,replaced with a new "lug" and problem solved. Worth a try. Look at the frame near the convertor to locate the wire..hope this helped.

With an LED, doesn't it only turn on and off/flash? It doesn't have the warm up time like traditional bulbs do, that would create the flickering effect I'm imagining.

If it's flickering (changing brightness rhythmically ) it maybe the camper power supply allowing too much AC into the DC wiring something you would not notice with an incandescent bulb or other DC stuff. The best way to find out see if it does it running on the battery alone.

Not LED, but flickering lights was the main symptom just prior to our power converter biting the dust.......
