In 2010, the newly elected mayor of Columbia, SC was involved in a car accident that nearly killed a well-loved hotel waitress. The ensuing investigation found that he didn't have his headlights on. I'm fairly confident that the hotel valet that parked the mayor's car earlier that evening turned the automatic headlights to the "off" position and the mayor failed to realize that they weren't on when he left the parking garage. I love my auto headlights in my car, but I always make it a point to ensure that they're in the auto position after somebody else, i.e., a valet, drives it...

I see people all the time driving at night with just their daytime lights.. When stopped they cannot even figure out how to manually use their lights or put them into automatic .. My we have gotten lazy.

Sounds to me that RVNut is saying is that having automatic lights, ones that come on with the windshield wipers, ones that turn off with a delay after you turn off the motor, ones that come on and turn off with the motor, is a desirable feature just like it is in cars. Why don't motorhome chassis manufacturers add this option to their chassis? It wouldn't cost that much to include it.
Thank you for getting my point.. Cheap option that should be offered

I always turn all my lights on every time I drive the MH, even though I have DRL (required in Canada).
Maybe we should get FR to spend a little more on better quality rather than things that Ford supplies.

I could think of better items to spend money on than auto lights!

I've had 2 MH and needed to have DRL. It was just a matter of upgrating or adjusting the intern settings with a laptop. It took the service teck just 15 minutes to program the DRL. I'ts an easy thing to do and both times, the dealership didn't charge me anything.

I am so Old that I can remember when we had (Parking Lights) this turned on Tailights as well and when needed for Driving, (Night/Dark/Dusk,Rain,Snow) you would turn on the (Headlights)! They even had (Fog Lights) for Fog! Now some (Goofball!) decides we need (DRL) these are Fancy LEDs around the Headlights,but they dont power the (Tailights)! Get OFF the Phones,take your Head out of your a-- and use your Headlights! Youroo!!
