Most converters don't get up to 14.2V, which is the voltage you need to properly charge some (most?) true deep cycle batteries.
3-stage converters found in most newer trailers, have a "bulk charge mode" which kicks the voltage up to 14.4V for a period of time.

Stupid question. Can LEDs be dimmed like 110ac light bulbs with a dimmer switch?

Yes. But, you need a compatible dimmer control for led type lights.

Can you illustrate how to open the cover of the Aframe inside light cover?
Sorry for the long time to reply. Just got back from a month long trip in the Aframe with DW to the north west.

These were the same base as I had Interior. I have not looked at the Exteral so do not know if the base is the same. I have the 2 part, 2 Bulb, light assy in my Aframe. And they were plug and play nothing else needed.

Take a small knife and slide it between the middle bar with the switches and the lens and turn the knife so the lens will slide about 1/8 inch and then you can lift the lens off.

LEDs run in a range of 10~30 volts DC. How hard they are 'driven' determines how bright they are and how long they last. (quote from LED Wholesalers tech)
I recommend staying away from the cheaper LEDs. I have a whole bag full of 'em. At least they didn't cost a lot!
I think my charging unit does get up to 14.2 volts.
I know that my solar charger get up to 14.2
I know when the trailer is connected to my truck. I am running 14 volts or more.
If you run 12 volt LEDs on 14 volts they are going to have a short bright life.

I have use the above and you can run these at 10 volts or 30 volts and the light output is the same, the reason is there is a voltage regulator on the board that set the voltage to the LED that is why these are not dimable.

I do not know if you are calling these cheap or not, but I have bought 14 of these and have not had a failure in the 4 years ( 4 have only been used for 1 year) that I have use them.

Residential dimmers that are LED compatible are still meant to operate on 120VAC. Unfortunately, the lighting circuit in an RV is 12VDC. That would require a special DC type dimmer.
