Question Headlight adjustment and cruise control

Our '08 Dolphin has been such a pleasure! We bought it new knowing the company had closed their doors and never have regretted our decision.
Two small problems. How do you adjust the headlights? I rarely drive after dark but on dim the headlights aren't high enough to see any distance at all and when I put them on high beam they seem to be where they should be on dim. No one flashes high beams at me either.

Our other problem is that the cruise control burns fuses and it gets to be such a hassle I just do without it.

Any solution to either problem?

Thanks for your help.

Sorry I can't help with the cruise control, but I did use the attached procedure to adjust the lights on my 99 Tradewinds and it really helped. In the process I found the mounting brackets for the lights had slipped out of the adjusting screws. They weren't broken but I did have to reset them to get the proper movemrnt.

Gotta question for ya on the cruise control issue. If this was purchased new after the doors to National RV closed. OR depending when the coach was first purchased as a new retail sale unit...shouldn't the cruise control still be covered under the Freightliner chassis warranty? I believe that warranty is for 2 years or 50,000 miles.
Or maybe I am mistaken. But, it maybe worth a call to Freightliner to find out.

It is a Workhorse chassis, they should cover the cruise control problem. The head lights were a NRV installed item.

Headlights will be some adopted car or truck units. I don't know what NRV used on the '08 Dolphin. My '05 has GM Chevy Tahoe/pickup units. Knowing that, I asked my GM dealer tech where the aim screws were and got the info.
