Logic says it would be better to complain to Forest River Diesel Division where you know it will be heard than on a forum. JMHO

However, common sense says it would be like shouting in the wind and a big waste of time. FR making the Dumb Wheel Smart, down the road for future buyers isn't going to help me.

I am royally p#ss#d that the Berkshire doesn't have high beam flash capability and I think every one would also be p#ss#d if they bought a brand new car and then later found out it didn't have windshield washers, IMO

TOWTA's old junker 96 Deville doesn't have the high beam flasher either, but after I got an A** chewing from an Arkansas state patrolman (1991 timeframe) that told me it was not a wise thing to do as it will temporarily blind/startle the oncoming vehicle, I quit doing it, so I don't miss it a bit.

But if you are on a divided highway and a trucker let you pull in a while back and he now wants in your lane; it is certainly nice to pay back the favor, back off to leave him some space and give a flash to pull in. Lights are a form of communication, just as the directional signals are.

Hank, maybe I'm missing something here, but don't high beams flash by partially pulling back turn signal stick?

Yes they do. We also have windshield washers. You don't have a wash function Hank?

I did not know about this feature. I'll have to check mine.

Truckers usually just turn their lights on and off as way of "Thank you". That's what I do to tell them they are clear to come over in my lane.

FWIW, years ago the dimmer switch was on the floor. Had to use the light switch to acknowledge. Floor switch was way to slow.

To my knowledge, the high beam does not flash with the headlights off. I'd like to have someone say that is not the case, however.
