Headlight adjustment

Does anyone know of a way to adjust the headlight beam position? I have a 2012 Georgetown 350ts and when driving at night the motorhome casts a shadow a few hundred feet up and it's difficult to see what's down the road. Suggestions???

Thanks

Why don't you tell the dealer about it being it is a 2012 model?

with the coach loaded and level on it's wheels the headlights 'hot spot' should be level (vertically) and straight ahead (horizontally) with the center of the bulb at about 35'. They use fancy aimers at dealers but a wall and a tape measure will work, or even have your DW stand there and have the light shine on her.

I've had vehicles in the past that even when set up properly seemed to have bad light patterns and you can tweak the lights a bit - just remember that higher than level isn't good as it can blind oncoming drivers.
