LED Headlights

Any information on converting to LED Headlights on what is referred to as a “Classic” Entegra? Would love to replace the existing with LED’s.

Be sure to get quality ones, otherwise you may have bad low beam pattern. That can be bad for oncoming traffic, as well as poor lighting for you.

We have been waiting for you to post the results. https://www.irv2.com/forums/f278/led...on-352954.html

I remember the question has been asked a few times since your post in 17. Just for grins, searched to see if anybody had posted the conversion. Only thing I could find was one LED set returned. I hope someone has had a successful conversion. https://www.irv2.com/forums/f278/cla...ml#post4627560

LED

I installed LED headlight bulbs last year in my 2000 Allegro, plug and play and no issues with stray light or anything else. My friend installed the same kit in his MH and his DRL didn't work after install but is keeping them as they work sooo much better...I can actually see at night now ! I used these...

I have been searching since my original post and have came up empty. Hoping someone had better luck. Since our coach has been the most reliable, trouble free one we’ve owned, we’ve decided to update some items and keep it instead of purchasing another new one with loads of problems I have been reading. Theater seating, desk instead of the love seat, new 55 inch TV, Dish Conversion, HWH Active Air and the usual tires and batteries. LED Driving lights would be nice, but not necessary since we don’t do a whole lot of night driving.

I just watched the RV Geek video on the LED conversion.....looks like an absolute piece of cake on an Entegra. That looks to be the answer. IIRC on the Classic, there is plenty of room for that conversion and it's Plug and Play

The issue with my 2015 Aspire led conversion is with the wire bail that holds the lamp in place. The bulb just sits in the access hole in the back of the lens and the wire clips around the lamp to secure it. The RV geeks video shows a insert and twist mounting....which my classic doesn't use. The problem with the led lamp is the large bulbous heat sink needed to keep the bulb cool. The wire bail is nowhere close to fitting no matter how you bend it. Here's a pic of what I'm dealing with. It has the original lamp in place with the wire clip

Hope this helps!
John

First, make sure your headlights are PROPERLY aimed. Don't take for granted the factory did anything other than put the headlights in the front cap.

As a reference, the Colorado Revised Statutes require that low beam hadlights must illuminate at least 150 feet down the road. Other states are probably similar if not identical.

Not all and most older housing's will not work well with the L.E.D. bulbs . But will work much better with the H.I.D. conversion kits. 6000 K is the Brightest and whitest color.

Yes, my 13 Classic lights were way off. Not hard to adjust, and a big help.

It would be nice to find a replacement led fixture to replace the ones that are in there, and how they are installed. I'll take a look at Chucks video suggestion. Removing all the fixtures is fairly easy, unplug, remove 2 or 3 screws in the bottom and the top, and the whole thing comes out.

(I had an image of it removed, but can't locate it)
