Hello. I've just looked at several Coleman lamps, some have krypton bulbs (mainly battery powered), some spiral fluorescent bulbs (mainly mains powered/charged). If this one is yours http://www.coleman.com/Parts/100/parts-lanterns/5317-702/remote-control-pack-away-family-size-lantern# then it appears yours has a spiral fluorescent bulb. Gas discharge bulbs commonly are fired up by an initial high voltage pulse then followed by a continuous ac medium voltage (say 80 volts or so) to give a FIXED LIGHT OUTPUT.
THIS DOES NOT ALLOW CONTROLLED DIMMING. Dimming can usually only be done on an INCANDESCENT TYPE bulb eg an older type tungsten filament bulb. These are however much less efficient.
So in summary, if you do have a fluorescent bulb, I don't know why your remote indicates you can dim it. You could try switching the bulb for an incandescent type, but this should only be attempted by qualified persons. Check over the user manual again. Good Luck.
