New bulbs for my RV headlights.

Hi all,
I would like to upgrade the headlight of my RV.
Actually it has stock halogen bulbs but it is difficult (here in italy) to find the model of the bulb....
So I decided to ask you if there is a xenon conversion or led conversion I can buy on the web...

Actually the only ebay auction that has the bulbs (led type) is this one, but he also sells the headlight together and mine are ok... I need only the bulbs but he doesn't sell separately...

h

Can you find for me the solution?
I prefere Xenon if possible...

Thanks a lot.

Sandro

I add some pictures ogf the bulbs to help to identify them.

A few things.

That's your image below from another post, right? Those are 2003-2005 Ford Expedition headlights. Searching for bulbs for an Expedition ought to find the right bulbs. Maybe that's what you have already found?

That said, you have a Ford chassis, correct? It's been documented that Ford cheated the FMVSS specs for headlight voltage a bit. You'll find adding relays and getting full system voltage to the bulbs will increase the voltage at the headlights around 2 volts. That will almost double the light output of the bulbs you have now.

I'd do the wiring upgrade, make sure their aimed correctly, and then decide if new bulbs are required.

You can read about that voltage and more in this thread.

Really?
Ok today I try to give power directly from the battery and i will see the difference!!
Anyway a hid conversion or a power led conversion is a very nice solution...

Actually more important to look at is the wire connector; was recently messing with HL on my T&C Chrysler van, and decided to try a bulb that I had removed from Ford only to find it was totally different... I was totally unaware that all halogens were not interchangable

Yep, several different ones. Some are high beam, some are low beam. Need the correct number off the bulb or from the owners manual.
