Important to consider as well is the simple physics. Our automobile driving experience puts us directly behind the headlights. Large vehicles raise us up so our view angle is disadvantaged and they do not appear as bright from the slanted angle.

It may not be accurate to assume the headlights are inferior or not working properly.

That is NOT to say they couldn't, or shouldn't be improved, if reasonably possible.

Have you been out at night with the new lights? What did you think?

tnteacherguy: Yes, we have been out a couple times in full darkness.

The headlight upgrade: They are not as bright as I thought they would be (they look brighter during the daylight, for some reason). HOWEVER, the light is much whiter -- looks more like daylight. I am pleased with the upgrade because I can see more and clearer, though only a little farther than I could before, it appears to me.

The driving light upgrade: These LED lights are lower to the ground and illuminate the road farther than the headlight LED upgrade. These are bright white, also. The combination of the two lighting upgrades gives me exactly what I want.

\ken

PS. I also added LED lights to my Wrangler with same "daylight" effect." I learned by the lights on the Wrangler how ineffective LED headlights are at melting away snow/ice that accumulates on the front of the vehicle in winter driving conditions. Since all of the heat generated by an LED headlight comes out the backside of the LED fixture, I need to pull over every-now-and-then to manually brush the snow/ice from the Jeep headlights. Mebbe not a concern for a MH, however.

Here is a picture of the driving and fog light install I did; before and after. These lights are from Rigid Industries. Is also a very easy upgrade. \ken

Thanks Bumps.
Not sure that you've sold me on moving this project up on my list.
I guess I'll continue to drive primarily during the day and work on other things.

Today, I'm replacing the catches on my drawers. I'm tired off ill fitting drawers that open occasionally while driving.

Have you had DW place the towed in front of your coach (as in stopping for a red light behind traffic) and is/was she blinded by the light? Or was everything okay?

That's a good idea. Will give it try when I get back to the MH. We have been in marathon mode the last couple of weeks trying to get the S&B emptied by the 20th. I feel like the guy spinning all of those plates on the Ed Sullivan "shoe." Prepping to go FT is not for wimps. Ugh!
