Dirty power?

While dry camping this weekend I encountered a strange situation. With generator running and the LED lights on in any room when I turn on water pump ceiling lights flicker rapidly turn the pump off flickering stops. Returning home and connecting to home shore power I tested it again and same thing happens so do I have a bad pump or gremlins in the wiring.

Check your transfer switch and make sure the wiring is tightly secured.

The pump and the lights operate on 12 volts don't they what would the transfer switch have to do with that just asking.

Wayne, if I'm not mistaken, everything goes through the transfer switch.

Only the generator and shore power go through the transfer switch. One horrible thought, Wayne. All of the DC connections like connectors and lugs are crimped. I sure hope that it is not a loose crimp; it would be difficult to find. Hank

Hank I'm with you I'm hoping it's a bad motor on the pump.

I have noticed the high speed Flickr on the lights, but I never associated it with the water pump or any other thing. I'll have to check and see if that is what makes mine Flickr.
