Why would you want to delete a safety feature you are probably getting an insurance break for?

In 2005 American Coach used BMW headlights, these are cheap knock-offs of the real thing. I like running at night so I ordered the real headlights that are projector instead of the bulb in a reflector. These lights are far superior compared to what was oem! They were also available with the BMW"Angle Eyes' which can't be seen with the original DTR feature. The LED Angle Eyes are legal in the US as DTR. Total cost of the replacements for both right & left was $175.oo. these were direct replacements.

It sounds like you may have answered your own question. If you like to run at night...you have to do what works for you. Many of us are parked by "happy hour" enjoying a tall cool one.

Our coach has a feature that turns on the headlights any time the windshield wipers are turned on. The headlights remain on until the coach is turned off.

I asked and apparently this is a law in some states where headlights are required to be on when raining. Not sure when it became law but it is something to consider.

On our 2002 DSDP I found a relay up above the generator and in front of the driver that was labeled "DRL". Removed it, that stopped the headlights from coming on whenever the key was turned on BUT it still let the wiper switch turn them on when ever the wipers were turned on.

When backing up my MH just last night the headlights were reflecting of my windshield and side windows so bad I couldn't see my mirrors. Had to have the little woman get out and guide me because there was no way to see what was behind me. One very good reason to be able to turn your headlights off!!!
