I agree, Windsorman! If they are operating as you say, there is a wiring issue. I wonder if a relay has failed, a wire connection has come loose, or it was mis-wired from the factory. Control or operating voltage for the fog lights should come from the headlight low-beam circuit. You might see if you can get a schematic for your headlight circuit from Monaco (Allied), or see if someone on the forum might have one. Good luck!

Call Monaco's tech line. If the lights are intended as driving lights they will operate as yours do. If intended as fog lights they operate with the low beams. Monaco can tell you how yours were intended. An auto electric tech could change but usually a driving light will have a narrow focused beam and a fog light will be broader and shorter range.

Good point, Steve. I hadn't considered the "driving light" possibility. Now that I think about it, I'm not sure that I've ever used ours. (The rocker switch on our units says "Fog Light". We don't drive at night enough to develop the habit, and we really try to avoid driving in fog.

I couldn't agree more! As I have accumulated birthdays, my aversion to night driving has multiplied. My Monaco is an '03 like the OP, and mine are wired as fog lights. I run them if I'm unlucky enough to be in the rain.

Thanks for all the info,as stated above they are probably intended for driving lights which makes sense to have them on when high beam is on,I guess I can live with this, I just like driving with my parking lights and driving lights the same time,oh well..
