Has any body been able to adjust the head light and up grade on fog lights

I am needing You Gentle peoples help again.
I have a 2004 Holiday Rambler Endeavor and the head light are so low on dim, that I can't hardly see . Is there any way to adjust them?
I also would like to know if anybody has been able to up grade the so called fog lights and what were You able to do?

I sure would appreciate all the help I can get.

Have you checked the voltage at the headlights, A VOM is your friend. If it is an aiming issue then yes it is possible. One other remote possibility is that you have bulbs that are at the end of their life. what happens when the ar on high beam? that is a different filament and will likely tell you if it is a bulb issue or a voltage issue.

Phil,
There have been quite a few recommendations to improve these headlights, including different bulbs, new wiring with relays installed instead of straight wiring from the headlight switch, and others. I personally think adding the relays and wiring is probably the best solution but do a search here and you will find a lot of information. I have a diagram that drnitrous sent me on how to wire the relays in. If interested in seeing it, pm me and I will forward it to you.

Phil there will be a adjustment screw on the back of the headlights as has been stated you probably need to up grade your bulbs, I attached the procedure to set the light height.

I adjusted my foglights so they sweep the beam further out and it works great. Did it at night on a level campground road. Pulled it out and taped cardboard over the headlights so just the fog lights were showing. I always adjust the drivers side too be a little to the right to light up the curb.

One thing you should make sure before you adjust any light is that the MH level adjustment has been checked and is right on and that the ground is absolutely level.

Phil.....On your coach, the Hella FF75's Electronics, Cars, Fashion, Collectibles, Coupons and More Online Shopping | eBay fit perfectly and wire right into the existing wiring. They are great for auxillary lighting and the highway.

See this thread http://www.irv2.com/forums/f258/impr...on-112938.html

There are several other threads on this topic as well. If this thread isn't what you are looking use the search feature, it should return a good days worth of reading.

I have the same problem as you. Replacing mine with HIDs and relays to deliver the needed voltage
