Aiming / Adjusting MH Headlights

I just replaced the headlight assemblies of my Providence. Not matter how hard I tried to seal them, they attracted moisture inside like a sponge, but that's another story.

I need to adjust the aim of the new headlights. On my cars, I would just parked them in front of the garage door with the headlights illuminated, and make the necessary adjustments. My motorhome will not fit in my driveway, so that is not an option for me. Anyone have another technique for adjusting them properly?

The side of a building.
I drove around a couple buildings till I found a good spot behind a I walmart. Talk to the store manager, asked him if I could use the back of the building. His only concern I didn't block trucks trying to deliver. Most are done with deliveries after noon.

Use the nearest industrial park, lots of building with nice big sides and you can get back far enough.

U pull up to wall, take tape mark X the bright spot.

Back up 25', see where the spot is, adjust accordingly.
