DRL's

I own a 2002 Winnebago G32V. I am trying to find the DRL module/relay. My unit has running lights, but I think it was wired backwards. My DRL,s are my bright lights instead of my dim lights. To reverse this problem all I need to do is switch 2 wires around. Can anyone tell me where this module/relay is located. I have spent several hours trying to find it, and I haven't come anywhere near finding it. THX

You need to get a schematic and find out where it's wired wrong. If the wire colors are reversed at the light socket, you can use a needle or other thing object and release the tab that holds the connection in and move it to the correct hole in the socket. Same with the module.

I have a wire scheme but it doesn't say anything about its location. The problem is not at the headlight end.

If you need a schematic just Google "Winnebago wiring diagrams" and you can choose your year and model to get all the wiring diagrams.

You likely need the chassis wiring diagram rather than a Winnebago diagram if the diagrams were separate when your coach was built. The worst that can happen by using the full output of your headlight is the bulb might have to replaced sooner. My guess is a couple of new bulbs is a lot cheaper than modifying the chassis wiring and running the risk creating other issues with the older wiring.

Most DRL's are indeed on the high beams, not the low beams. Most fire at about 80% of normal brightness.

I don't know what Winnie does.

+1

Not sure why it's wired that way - maybe to share load with low beams (so you don't burn them out faster) or maybe because the highs at lower intensity are still more noticeable but it's common to see them like this.

I like your way of thinking. That or maybe the placement of the filament or alignment of the high beams make them easier to see during the daytime.

what chassis is it. My Ford F53 lighting is part of the chassis up to the head lights. I did not want them so i pulled the relay out of the Ford fuse box.

I think on my F-53 it was fuse #11.
