Replacement Bulb for Low Beam Headlight

The passenger side low beam headlight on my rig has apparently burnt out, so I'm needing to replace the bulb. According to a person at Winnebago Parts, the bulb is BP1265H8, which can be purchased at any local auto parts store. I google searched BP1265H8 and got nothing, but did get a number of hits on a Wagner Lighting BP1265H9; however, this bulb is described as being for the high beam, not the low beam. Can this bulb be used for the low beam? If not, does anyone know what the right number for the low beam headlight?

Thanks!

I suspect this is an H8 bulb.

I would suggest removing the bulb and taking it to a auto parts store and obtaining a replacement.

An H8 is a 35w 12v Halogen headlight bulb. High beams are typically 55w. Should come in at around $30 for two.

An H9 is a high beam bulb.

Hid bulb replacements

Go to DDM Tuning.com, they have the best selection of HID Lights on the market today..we have converted all our vehicles to date..each kit rungs about 35 bucks plus shipping, also carry a life time warranty..you will love the new lights..get the 6000K bulbs, they are pure white with just a hint of blue...anything above that is a waste of time and money..
