Curious.
I don't see any front turn signals - I suspect that's what those orange lights are for.

Actually the bottom orange lights are courtesy lights and not fog lights. They are pretty but not very functional. As noted by the OP, Freightliner puts in the wiring harness for fog lights and tie wraps each lead to the chassis cross bar. I am trying to identify the actual socket that mates with the supplied plug, but haven't had any success so far.

The plug is normally plugged directly into the bulb. You most likely wont find a mating connector for it. I cut mine off on my jeep and wired directly to the new FOG lights using heat shrink butt splices.

Can you re-post your video? I'd like to see how you did this. The original video won't play. Thanks

I could only get the video to play on a Windows machine and not on a Mac. Also, Kb2ztx is correct. The Plugs are left-over and obsolete. Freightliner says that there is no long a mating Socket for it, so cut them off and hardwire.

This is for 38R and the 34 Winnebago Forza.for those who do not understand the top lights High beam low beam turn signal.the led light at the bottom can only be turned on when the motor is off it's like a porch light "courtesy light . I do not understand why the video will not play it will play on my iMac but not my tablet so I will try to submit another video . I cannot find the right plug for a connection for the fog lights so I end up cutting the plug and hardwiring it to the fog lights .

I think the video problem may be related to how it is loaded. When it works for me, it starts with an advertisement. When it doesn't work, the ad isn't loading.


I got my lights this afternoon in the mail. They look just the same!

I did the install yesterday. It took me about 3 hours, of which one hour was measuring, measuring, measuring, to get them positioned. There really isn't a perfect datum to use to get them positioned, so just be careful and measure twice and cut once. I also recommend making two templates so that you can visualize what they will look like on the MH and then use lots of painters tape to protect the paint. I drilled two holes first in the opposite corners of each installation rectangle for the fog lights to insert the jig saw blade. I used a thin metal blade to cut the fiberglass. It is messy. I tested each light for location and drilled pilot holes for the mounting screws using the actual fog light in place. I coated the back part of the fog light that sits against the MH body with silicon chalk.

As noted, the left and right wiring harnesses are zip tied to the cross beams of the chassis. They were labeled. I cut off the Connectors (see great pictures in earlier post) and soldered the wiring together, but replacement Connectors are an option. I then used heat shrink tubing and additional electrical tape to insulate. There should be enough length in the wiring that stress should be OK, but the driver's side wiring was shorter than the passenger's side. The lights work as advertised by pushing in on the headlight switch with the motor in the "on" position. A little Fog light indicator even appears on the dash when they are on. I have't tried them yet at night, but they are sure bright during the day.

This should be a great modification for anyone who drives at night and might run into fog.
