Head Lamp Bulbs


I have a 2013 American Coach. The headlamp bulbs are sylvannia HB4 u 2006 51w.
I am trying to find out a better brighter replacement?

You sure bulbs are the issue? Or could it be headlight aiming, or lens clouding?

or low voltage to the bulbs. I had 10.5 volts measured at the bulb with the lights on.
