My mate has got a Four Winds 5000 he's asked me if anybody knows where he can
get some Halogen headlights for his RV as the ones which are on the vehicle at the
moment are useless,he say's when he puts the full beam on for night driving it's like
driving with just his sidelights on.

Is the rv fitted with sealed beam units or are lamps fitted ?
If lamps, he can simply hoof one out and wander along to Halfrauds .. a pimply oik should be able to match it easily enough :Smile:
personally I would be inclined to go with HID's to be honest.. OK, they are not that cheap but prices are half what they used to be and the output from them is amazing

I doubt very much that Fourwinds manufacture the headlights they use on their RV so if you can find out the original manufacturer say from an owners club you stand a good chance of upgrading them.

Fourwinds themselves may know. Link Removed

The headlights on my Fleetwood for example are identical to those fitted to Ford F250/350 pickup trucks:Smile:

If your mate has the bulb type headlights then try Xenon HID much brighter bulbs.
I wish they would ban those damn things! :Angry:

Oncoming vehicles using xenon.....one minute you hardly see them, then as the vehicle direction changes, the lights literally take your eyes out with a horrendous blinding and sudden flash.

That the light colour is also blueish as opposed to a white light, amazes me even more they are legal.

I would suspect this is more to do with the levelling of the headlights than the bulbs themselves as they are the same size and the element is at the same focal point of the lense.

I blame it more on the drivers beam level "load adjustment" on the dash being set too high.

I am delighted with mine and have the lights set accordingly to MOT Spec.

They do not have electronic adjusters on the "old girl".:ROFLMAO:
