LED interior lights

I replaced all the power sucking halogen lights to LED i have 4 on a dimmer so i bought dimmer led lights but they only light up very little. We donít use the dimmer slider so is it possible to just unhook it and just use the on off.
Also how do i get the switch off the wall I canít see any screws.

Can't tell from where I sit but you should be able to just pry out the switch with a screwdriver. Replace the switch if you don't want the dimmer.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

I don't think that replacing the dimmer with a switch will get the lights any brighter than using the dimmer on high. Full voltage is full voltage.

I did the same thing and hated the LED lights in every fixture so I used xenon bulbs in the main lights and bath. Left the LED's in the perimeter (under cabinet) lights and in the bedroom. If we are dry camping, we use the LED's. Otherwise we use the xenon

LED lights are polarized meaning they have a + and - connection unlike automotive bulbs commonly used in RVs that don't care about polarity. Really shouldn't run if reversed but I'm not sure if they'll run dim if reversed, I have a LED garage ceiling light that doesn't come on as bright as another so when the cars are out I'm gonna get on my ladder switch them and see what happens.
