Flickering ceiling lights

I purchased a used 2004 1940ltd pop-up. The 2 lights on the ceiling have started to turn off and on when I step in certain spots in the camper. Any ideas why? I understand they run off the battery and can't see the wiring running under the floor.

If we could see what goes on as we use or tow or level our units we would prolly pass out. When the slides go in or out and the walls moving...scary. It's a bad connection somewhere. I would start at the switch and the fixtures. One would hope there aren't too many connections between.

Ground wire loose most likely! If it were a Positive wire worn/rubbing you would be Blowing a Fuse not just Flickering! Youroo!!

Some years ago I had a pop-up and the one ceiling light stopped working. I had to take various panels off at floor level to find that the 12vDC wiring for the ceiling light actually was inside one of the four square tubing's that raised/lowered the pop-up top. Think about it, the wiring for your light has to go from floor level up to the light fixture in some manner.
