    Assistance and advice please, we obtained this second hand vehicle a few months ago and are experiencing problems with the habitation lights around the van. They come on okay but after about 20 minutes start to flash on and off which is so annoying. The one main ceiling light is okay but too harsh a light. The previous owner said he had replaced them with led lights but did not mention this problem. It is not obvious at first and with the light nights in the summer not so apparent.
    We could rely do with a good auto electric electrician, we live in Worcestershire.
    We are completely at sea with electrics

    Sounds like you have a lack of power to the leds... Is your battery ok? Were you on hook up when the lights flashed?

    I would question the quality of the LED bulbs. There is a lot of rubbish on the market. The fact that they run fine for 20mins could suggest an overheat issue which only comes apparent when they are good and warm.
    Maybe buy a decent replacement and try in one lamp before changing everything.
