Brighter lights for towd

I am feeling the need for better/brighter bulbs for my towd (2009 Honda CRV)


Seems the brakes lights aren't all that impressive in the day time.



Are LED's a good option? Any better ideas?

Does anyone have a good source?



Thanks!

Do the lights appear to be the same brightness when the toad is hooked up, vs , when applied when the toad is not hooked up . If the lights are not as bright, you may have power drop somewhere in the connectors from the coach or in the wiring through the toad.
Because all things being equal the lights when the toad is hooked up should be as bright as when the Honda left the factory.

Regarding my CRV, seems my brakes lights are equally dim
connected to the Monaco or not.

If you can pull the bulb , and get a number from it , Napa/ AutoZone, may be able to provide a higher wattage bulb, or an LED option once you have the number.
