LED lights fickering when water pump is running


We have noticed when we are running the water pump our LED lights flicker. They only do this when we are running water and the pump is on. I'm sure its inference from the pump. Has anyone else had this issue, and is there a fix. We have a 2017 33RL

I would try a fan or other 12 v gadget when the pump is running to see if you can determine any fluctuation in it. If you do, it's likely the pump motor failing or intermittently shorting, causing power fluctuations. As far as I know LED's either work or don't but can be dimmed with lower power levels. Maybe someone else has been there, done that and has a definitive answer.

Are you on shore power or just running off the battery? If on battery and it is low ,the lights will flicker a bit when pump comes on.

It was a rainy few days at Algonquin Prov park...tarps kept us dry.

I have the exact same problem with my 2013 25rb .... the leds under my kitchen cabinets flickers and my leds on my awning do it as well but the rest is fine. My brother in law is a electrician and he is supposed to come look at it some time.

My idiot light for the water pump, works when it feels like it. On and off all the time, but pump works all the time. I'm guessing, glitch with light built into switch. The lights for elec and gas hot water heater always work....... switches are the same... glitch I guess
