DC voltage fluctuation.

New 2015 Wildwood 29FKBS TT. When I go on shore power, sometimes my interior lights fluctuate between bright and dim. At first I thought it was a RV Park problem, but it has happened at three different parks. It does not do it all the time, but it has happened enough to have me a little concerned. Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas what's going on?

Your lights are 12 volts, when not connected to shore power the lights are running on the battery and whatever voltage its able to put out (say around 12 volts). When you plug in shore power, your converter supplies a higher voltage (say around 14 volts) on the 12 volt line in order to charge your battery. The higher voltage will make your lights shine brighter.
