Folks--let's keep this thread on topic, please. If you can assist the OP in answering the question about how to disable the DRLs, please do so.

Thank you.

DRL issue

I can understand why you may feel that way I am a tractor trailer driver and I understand the code of flashing your lights to let a truck over. however I would never change lanes soley on the basis of somebody flashing light. I would make sure that I have the proper room first.
My guess is if you left them on nobody would have cut in front of you again anyway. it's just the luck of the draw.
I understand your feelings about keeping those lights off, and you need to do what you're comfortable with. actually the truck that I Drive and my personal vehicle do not have daytime running lights. my hand automatically goes to the headlights to turn on when I start the vehicle. It's automatic for me like putting on my seat belt
most RVs are a light color and they will blend in the background, with daytime running lights or headlights the eyes naturally attracted to the light, making you more visible to other drivers and pedestrians.
To each there own.
Just another bit of info, in most states they allow for modulating headlights for motorcycles, this dirty of flashes the headlight in daytime hours to be better noticed by others.

Thanks for all your comments. Firstly a Bullbar in australia is an aluminum structure fitted to protect the front of the rv from kangaroos deer cows pigs & other vehicles. Takes the impact rather than damaging the fibreglass front. (An expensive repair job)This bar has lights fitted into it which we would rather use than the headlights. Also it is not mandatory to use daytime lights in australia. I think we wll pull the fuse!!! Thanks
