Low beams inop 2019 Mountain Aire

When turning headlights on, low beams don't come on. High beams and fog lights work fine. Anybody had this happen?

Which chassis do you have? If Freightliner, I would definitely look into the recall.

On my 2018 MA on a Spartan chassis, my low beam bulbs burned out pretty quickly, so you may want to check the bulbs.

My 2019 MA (Spartan chassis) has also burned out three low beam lamps in one year.

We have a 19 MADP 4018. We have replaced 6 low beam light bulbs within the 1st year in service. The 1st bulb burnt out within the 1st 2 months. NIRVC diligently tried tracking the problem down a few times without success. We just keep extra bulbs on board for future use when the low beam burn out - again!

FYI, we have a Spartan chassis but Newmar installs the headlights. They accepted responsibility but said they never heard of this problem. Well okay but.....

That is funny. I think that is the first thing they ever say. ďWow I never heard of that happening ď

Are you sure no water is getting on the bulbs? That will kill any of the high discharge, halogen, etc bulbs immediately.

We had both Cummins tech (Spartan service) and NIRVC
techs check everything possible including running voltage checks. No joy so we just keep replacing burnt out bulbs. As I previously mentioned this is not a Spartan issue because they supply chassis to Newmar without lights.

When my bulbs burned out I went to Walmart and got Sylvania Basic H3 bulbs. They havenít burned out yet, but Iím also not happy with their lighting ability. Fortunately itís very rare that we drive when itís dark out.

The best replacement brand bulb, that is used by many companies, is OSRAM. Just need to verify you get real OSRAM product - there are a lot of counterfeit product on amazon. I installed their top HIDs and they are great.

Alternatively, there are plug and play LEDs. I would just be sure to get waterproof ones just to be safe.

I changed out the bulbs with exact same replacements with same results. No low beam lights.
