Better lighting for the road

On our 2014 Winnebago Vista I stronger/brighter headlights or be able to add fog lights. Has anyone done this?

NO driving only in the day time is not an option. I agree with Bill the headlights are dim on the Vista. Read through most of the thread suggested by Tim. Thank you Tim. Looks like I will have a fun project this winter.

Thanks Tim. I'm going to work on this when I'm done with my last trip this Thanksgiving.

Not an option to only drive in the daytime, but nice thought.

Fog lights are useless for long-range lighting needs. They only project about 50-75 feet in front of your vehicle. You need long range driving lights for best effect. Because they are uber bright, like your high beams, they should only come on with (interlocked to) the high beams. They should not come on with the low beams. You are only allowed to have up to 4 lights on at a time. Ex: low beams & fogs, low beams & high beams, driving lights & high beams.

Definitely check the voltage at the headlight sockets. If less than 13 volts with the engine running you made need to wire in relays. If your headlights have removable bulbs you might be able to get higher output replacements but you should use relays if doing that. Stock are probably 55 watt, I run 65's on my Jeep low beams without problems. I would shoot Daniel Stern an e-mail to get his suggestions.

Looks like they used Ford F-150 headlights for that model. My F-150 had the worst headlights I'd ever had on any vehicle. I added one of these tied into the high beam wiring.

There is a great place I've found for LED lighting that works exceptionally well. Check out. Www.superbrightleds.com. I've used their products on my motorcycles, cars and coach.
