The flickering on bumps and during bed movement says to me there is a loose or corroded connection someplace
Since it happens when you move the bed, odds are its in the bed area instead of chassis or where the wiring harness transitions from chassis to bed. This type of problems can make one go
Tracing wiring problems can be a pain in the
