Headlight fuse ?

I just notice my right headlight is not working.

Is there a fuse somewhere ? All my other vehicles had fuses for the headlight !!!!

Check the bulb. They burn out regularly as they are on all the time (as Daylight Running Lights). If a fuse, I would expect both to be out.

If just one headlight is out then I'd have to say the bulb is out, a blown fuse should take out both headlights.

Most headlights are on automatic breakers, not fuses as a safety feature.

Start carrying spare bulbs.

Both of mine went out at roughly the same time. Check the bulbs before you dig any deeper.

Headlamps are not fused they have a resetting circuit breaker.

It is most likely your bulb. It is also not to uncommon that the other bulb will blow in short order due to the increase in unblanced load, when you switch the headlights on.

Headlight fuse ?

Vehicles have a driver and passenger headlight fuse. So if a fuse were to blow at night then you would still have another light. If they were on the same you would be driving in the dark with no lights at all

Sorry sir, but you are mistaken, headlights are on automatic resettable breakers. There are no fuses on the headlights.

I guess you never looked in the fuse box of any of your vehicles because the driver and passenger are on separate circuits. So you are driving without headlights.
