As Himcules said, I have about figured out that my flashing LEDs also have to do with low battery.
I noticed them flashing bad last weekend and when I looked at the monitor the battery voltage was about 12.1.
Then I noticed that we had lost shore power and had been running on the inverter with the microwave, electric skillet and coffee pots going.
As soon as I got the shore power restored the LEDs stop flashing.

LEDs can fail short circuited unlike incandescent light bulbs that fail open circuit

Mine started doing the same thing last week. Lights pulsing is the way I would describe it.

I found that one of my 6 volt coach batteries had come apart. By this I mean that the case had ruptured. Like exploded??

How I found it --I noticed that my coach on the inverter would not last as long as it did before.

Replaced that battery and the pulsing went away. So I would look for a low power situation. ??

Russell did the battery freeze? Odd that the case would split open. Did you replace all or just one? How big a mess did it make? All that acid could do a lot of damage. Hopefully you were not parked on a concrete pad.

No way it could of froze? Spent Nov to April in Florida ?? Have no idea what happened. All were low on water? I only replaced one. Hard to say when or what happened. I keep it in a barn on concrete. No mess there. If it happened in Florida it would of been on gravel ? Still has acid in the bottom 1/2 where it didn't split ?? I took all batteries out & washed box good. Will just see if I need to replace other three or not. They check good ?

Here is a pic of the battery Phil. My guess is that it must if cracked in Florida ? As I have no acid on my barn floor.

Russell I am not a battery expert but could be pressure build up if cap vent failed or overcharging if one of the cells was bad making the charger working harder.

Really not sure. But I'd guess a plate shorted or something like that.
