Headlight alignment problems

I have a 2007 Terra LX, 34N. There seems to be a tremendous misalignment to the headlights. I have found the vertical alignment adjustment screw but, I cannot find the one for horizontal adjustment. Anyone have some insight as to how to realign the lights? Night time driving is almost impractical at this point.

There are many threads regarding poor Headlight performance on RV's! I'm of the opinion that none of them are any good.

The lights used by RV Makers are usually sourced from regular Car or Pickup Trucks.

They may work ok in their original vehicle but don't in Our motor homes!

I just don't even bother driving any distance after dark, especially on an unfamiliar road.

Your other alignment screw may not exist. On my Holiday Rambler, I have an alignment screw for left-right, but none for up/down. I guess they decided that the front cap construction would always keep the alignment. I adjusted mine with tapered shims between the headlight housing and the front cap fiberglass.

I have a 2008 Terra LX and the headlights are the same as the 2004/2005 Ford Expedition. I believe yours are the same. As with you the alignment was awful. I found the vertical adjuster but haven't found the horizontal one either, if there is one. Maybe looking for 2004 Expedition headlight info will help.
