Right headlamp Bulb

Hi,

How do you remove headlamp bulb from a 2014 Adventurer 35P. I have moisture in it and would like to remove bulb and then use a hair dryer to dry out moisture.

I looked at removing headlamp but no can do.

Thanks.

My motorhome is a lot older than yours but I would think accessing just the bulb would be similar. I have a black rubber ‘cap’ that pulls off the back of the headlight assembly where the bulb is. I then rotate the bulb assembly, maybe less than 45 degrees and pull straight out.

You could then use a hairdryer to dry things out but I’m not really convinced you’ll get a longer term cure. Rain, fog, washing it... I think a headlight seal has let go and moisture will show right back up

You need to determine what model vehicle was used for your ‘Winnebago’ headlight assemblies. Looking at one should give you an idea on the mounting points on your motorhome. (Mine, for example, are from the early 2000’s Chevrolet Suburban and Silverado series.) -RT

PICS would help, because of difference in model years headlights.

Front and back that is.

Drill small hole (1/8) in lamp housing. Moisture will disappear in a few days. Turning on headlights will hasten drying out as heat from the bulb will evaporate some of the moisture. The idea is to get some dry air in that sealed space. You can give this a try, or buy a new headlight $$.
