Charger/AC Panel Lights Dim

The A/C and Battery Charger indicator lights on the main fuse panel are much dimmer than all other indicator lights. All A/C electrical components function perfectly. Checked 30 amp power connection, charger connection, and battery grounds, all seem OK. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks........

Re: Charger/AC Panel Lights Dim

Indicator lights dim and burn out easily. Particularly those on AC panels for some reason. It is not unusual for some to be dimmer - that does not indicate a problem. They can be replaced, although it is difficult in some panels to do so.

Re: Charger/AC Panel Lights Dim

the battery charger one is probably the first to burn out because it's on 100% of the time you have shore power. everything else is probably getting switched on and off and less lamp time.

same with ac main as that is on the most.

I'm not sure I've seen dim ones though. but I definatlly see them burnt out.
