Palazzo Headlight alignment?

Does anyone know what the alignment procedure for the Palazzo headlights are?

Does the 25', 2-4" below centerline setup work?

Until this last trip back from Breckenridge, CO, I am normally parked by 3-4pm in the afternoon to have enough time to setup camp. This trip back we were trying to be home by Christmas day, so I pushed it to 9:30 pm before stopping at a Walmart for the night. This was the first time I noticed that my headlight alignment was off. The beams were way too low and on low beams I was outrunning them. I had to turn on the high beams whenever there was no oncoming traffic or anyone in front of me. It was kind of scary, especially after seeing all the roadkill (deer) during the day.

Seems like there are a lot of variables, like weight distribution, fuel levels, airbags, etc. that could make setup difficult.

Any help appreciated.

I'd like to know too. In my situation low beams are fine, but brights are way too high and useless. At first glance looks like the low and bright are not adjustable separately? I use low and fogs most of the time. Fogs are helping to lit shoulders.

In the group of 3 switches, the one on the right of the main headlights and dimmer.

Bill, if you have a knob for your lights just give it a gentle pull to turn on or off. ok might be a push rather then a pull...

I don't know how they work on a 2014 but on my 2016, inside the generator bay you can access the back of the headlight housing. On the back side of the housings, you will see there are 3 long hex screws on each light. Shine your lights on a wall and turn the screws to see how the beam moves and you should be able to get fairly close that way by playing with the adjustment until it looks right on the wall. You might have to come back and tweak it a time or two but that should get you close enough for government work. I hope that helps....

Okay, just checked, mine has the knob, with running lights position and Headlight position. It also has a "push" and light symbol. With the ignition key on, pressing the knob turns on the fog lights.

Thanks all!
