Radio reception gone with lights on

Have a 2015 XLR, and the radio reception is subpar to begin with but when you turn lights on, it goes away completely. Especially the loft lights. They are all LED, so not sure why some are worse than others. Any ideas? I saw the other thread about the adapter to TV, but really the radio should work...

Not really, LED lights can interfere with radio and television signals.

Hold on and I will get you some links.

Makes sense, just drives me nuts. It should just work or they should do something different to make it work.

The Rf components in some of the inexpensive LED modules are very (RF) noisy and will totally kill radio and TV reception. If they are OEM lights that came with the RV, demand the dealer replace them under warranty ( this is a known problem), If they are aftermarket lights search LEDs here and you will find several manufacturers that will work well. Depending on how many lights are the problem, it might be easier to just replace them yourself and avoid the delay waiting for the warranty repair.

Every light in the the camper is LED, so there are 27 in there. They are OEM too.

I can but different ones, but 27 good ones is spendy....
