Well, the saga goes on. I temporarily replaced the dimmer control's PWM output ground with a hard wired ground. Didn't notice any improvement in the brightness. The only other thing that I can think of is to replace one of the LED lights with a new one. Hopefully this can be done with a bulb replacement. If that does tell me anything, then I guess it is my eyes.

Dimmer switch

My Charleston has a low/high toggle that controls all LED lighting in my rig. If you have the same toggle array by your entry door someone may have inadvertently changed it to low. 😎

I have been using LED's in my home and in the camper for 15+ years and have never had one go bad yet. Not a single LED ever failed me. The LED's in my camper are not that old only a few years old. I do not agree with that statement. They are as bright today as the day I installed them.

I think Jim was simply saying that it is possible for LED bulbs to fail...not that all of them will fade or fail.

I assure you...if it runs on electricity, it CAN fail.

I was simply disagreeing with the statement " ? Very common issue. LED's DO get dimmer " True after approximately 70% of it's life. We ate talking 40,000 +- hours of use. I admit I don't leave my lights on when no one is in the room... But to get 40,000 hours use before the start to dim... Common??? I don't think so.
