DRL Circuit diagram

I have a 2002 Brave 32V on a 2001 F53 chassis.
I need the wiring diagram for the DRL circuit and ( if possible ) the location of the DRL circuit components.
Reason - want to install LED headlights and need to disable/replace DRL circuit with LED running lights.
I have already replace the original sealed beams with halogen units, but want to go one step further.
Will appreciate any info/assistance.
Happy RVing,
J.S.

Can you elaborate? I have no idea what a DRL circuit is.

DRL = Daytime Running Lights. Did they exist in RVs in 2001?

DRL circuit

They did in Canada.
We had that regulation several years before USA. My Brave was originally owned in Washington, but may have been modified to be registered in BC.
Probably not part of original build.
I guess I may have to figure out the wiring by myself - not the first time!
A later schematic might give me a clue.

Ought to be able to find applicable diagrams posted at irv2.com.

Try a few of these hits there.

Any '99 to '04 diagram ought to work.

Pretty sure you just need to pull a fuse.

Winnebago did not put DRLs on their US coaches up to 2010 and likely only on Canadian optioned coaches after that. I purchased two coaches in the US and made arrangements for the DRL installation. Depending on the chassis on the RV you are getting, your best bet is to contact the chassis manufacturer - not Winnebago - to determine if the chassis has provisions for DRLs.

My 99 Adventurer has DRL's built into the F-53 chassis wiring.
Like most DRL's back in that day, it's reduced voltage, I think on the low beam circuit. By comparison, many cars do reduced voltage to the high beams.
But if you're replacing your headlights with LED's or something with a separate bulb set for DRL's, you need to add the circuit and switch for that.
You can disable the factory DRL's by removing the fuse.

I have done a bunch of motorhome headlight upgrades, I like to use HID but that doesn't matter. Look for a 'module', the ones I have seen are actually made in Canada. In my experience it looks like a large relay. And again in my experience, you just need to unplug it

e4services, on my car it was a module (relay) on the fuse block (I was adding DRL as it's a good idea here).
On my year of the F-53, there's a module but it ties into the low beams. Pulling the fuse was easy perfect.

Unhappy DRL circuit diagram.

Thanks for all the response.
Apparently I wasn't taking my own advice - " when all else fails - read the directions ".
My F53 manual shows location of DRL fuses - duh!
Call it a 'senior moment'
Thanks again!
