    Serious thread for a change.....
    What do owners of Burstner A class do to adapt their headlamps when heading across the other side of the Channel?
    They have the small headlamps similar to the ones we had on our previous Rapido.
    But the Rapido had a feature where you could rotate the headlamps a few degrees to adapt them without using beam benders or black tape. It required you to be experienced in keyhole surgery, to have three hands and to carry out the whole task using a mirror. And if you dropped one of the screws you were completely b*ggered. But once you had mastered the knack, the whole operation took only a few minutes.
    I've scoured the Burstner manual but no mention of a similar feature. So what do you Burstner owners do? Black tape? Beam benders cut down to size? and if so where on the headlamps do you attach the damn things?

    QUOTE=bobandjane;895964]Hi, not had a hymer, our eura mobil had switches on the headlights to adjust them for europe, but the older a class hymer you have 3 screws on the rear of the headlight, a bugger to do first time, but owners leave them so you can move them, and you just give them a turn and is not much when they go overseas. :thumb: Bob.

    Thanks for this, don't know how I missed your reply.

    Looks like Hymer have/had the same sort of system as Rapido. Burstner seems to have the same headlights but I can't see the screws at the back to make the adjustment.
