2014 Anthem Headlight aiming

I recently drove our newly purchased Anthem in the dark for the first time.

I was shocked at how low the low beams were, dangerously low.

I have read all the threads I could find related to headlight aiming and have adjusted the low beams up using the top two screws.

I suspect the high beams are also too low, so I attempted to raise them up. However, the high beams have only 2 adjustment screws, as opposed to 4 as with the low beams. These 2 screws are diagonal from one another, at approximately the 10 o'clock and 4 o'clock position

I need to learn how to adjust the high beams with only 2 screws, which are diagonal to one another.

Has anyone determined how these 2 screws work to affect the high beam housing if you only want to only raise the beam and not adjust the horizontal?

The headlights are glued into the mounting area. I would just make small adjustments to the high beams since you only have the 2 screws. Do all 4 headlights come on when high beams are activated

The headlights on my 2015 Anthem that I purchased new in 2014 were so poorly "aimed" that the first time I drove the coach after dark, it was a complete mess..... everyone was flashing their lights at me as I was blinding the oncoming drivers. The passenger side headlight was focused at about a 45 degree angle to straight ahead and thankfully focused on the right berm of the road...... it did an excellent job of lighting up the trees on the right side of the road but contributed nothing to being able to drive safely at night (but it was only blinding the deer).

My hypothesis was that the guy on the assembly line that installed the lights installed the lights 10 minutes before the end of his shift and said to himself "Well, I'll leave those that way tonight and I will finish aiming and installing tomorrow morning" and then forgot or called in sick the next day. My headlights were a mess and they came that way from the factory.

Yes, all 4 come on with high beams. I am planning to change out the high beam bulbs and the driving lights bulbs to Sylavania Silverstar Ultras at the same time as I get the alignment corrected.

I was shocked at how low the low beams were. I was overdriving the lights even at 50 mph
