Headlight Performance

Had a real problem with my headlights during last years return to Pa. Night driving was a real pain as the headlights both low and high beam didn't do the job. This past summer while having my MH in for it's annual Pa. Inspection I had the mechanic adjust the headlights to specs. Had the chance to do several hours of night driving on my current trek to Fl. I'm absolutely amazed at the remarkable improvement the alignment procedure produced. Low/high beams do the job they're suppose to do without lighting up the tree tops and road sides. The $15.00 cost of alignment was worth every penny and more
If you having trouble with night driving due to poor headlight performance do yourself a favor and have you lights aligned by a professional

I too had my headlights aligned by the factory this spring in Oregon. Before the alignment the lights worked so poorly I wouldn't drive after dark. My next thought is to replace the bulbs with Beamers to get the benefit of brighter bulbs however without proper alignment they would not have ever been useful.
