With daytime running lights, how do you flash your lights at a truck or RV when they pass you to signal them they can pull back in front of you? Or is it not possible to do that with daytime running lights?

Some of the truckers think you are rude when you don't signal them to pull back in, but they don't know I can't.

I use my headlights in the daytime. I usually get a "thank you" from the trucker's turn signals or running lights.

I think the best solution to the daylight running light problem is to turn your lights on, set the headlights on bright, then turn them back off. Then when you flash your lights the brights lights will come on and show a differnce from the dimmer running lights. Truckers can see and appreciate your efforts.

Chuck, I don't know what model coach you have (you might want to list that in your signature for future use) or if you have the Smart Steering Wheel or not, but if you do, just press the wheel mounted switch with the headlight symbol on the right side of the wheel. That will turn your daytime lights off while you hold it depressed.
If you don't have the SSW, pull your left directional signal switch. Watch the dash and observe if the high beam indicator illuminates. If so, just use it.
