HR Headlight Replacement

I have a 2000 Holiday Rambler Endeavor that has extremely poor headlights. The plastic yellows and I have used various methods to clear them up but that only last about so long. When I drove down the Alaska Highway in the construction part of the trip last fall on a rainy night my visibility was terrible. Does anyone know of a replacement assembly with modern bulbs to put in this rig?

I bought a kit for my HR. 55 watt, 6000k. I thought it may be a little too bright until I took it out for a drive last weekend. I was gonna see if I got flashed, flipped off or honked at. Once i was on the open road, they were fine. The light on the road in very noticebly different. It's not as good as a modern, focused beam, but way brighter. Another option would be the 35 watt, 4300 kelvin set up. I can send you a picture of my install, it was pretty much plug and play, $50.00 bucks on Amazon for a 1998 Explorer, same as yours.

That sounds like a pretty easy deal but I would enjoy seeing a picture of the install if you don't mind. Either here or personal email at sacora@gci.net.

I'm at home in Fairbanks and my RV is in Iowa now and I am not going to be able to get down that way to drive it back up here until sometime this summer. I'll probably wait and order them shortly before I fly down there to get the coach.

On my 2000 Holiday Rambler (freightliner chassis) the stock headlights suffered from extremely low voltage. I looked into relays vs HID conversion, and went with the HID conversion, using components from DDM Tuning.

It's a 3 page thread, but there's some useful info in the thread linked below:
Improving headlight illumination
