Dash gauges hard to see in daylight.

We have a class C motor home on a Ford E450 chassis. During the day it is very hard to read the instruments with sunglasses or photo grey lenses on. It would be nice to have some sort of lighting that won't reflect off the plastic lense. Hope someone has had the same problem problem and found a solution.

Dash Lights

I may have found something that will help. Super bright LED instrument light bulbs. Stay tuned.

Same problem, simple fix. Run with your headlights on. Also helps other drivers see you.

Gauges what gauges. I can see the GPS for speed and the ScanQauge for the rest. Works for me.

Yup. easy fix... just run with the headlights on. We had the same issue, and that took care of it... with the gauge lights turned all the way up, they're really bright.
