Low beams out. All other lights work

Dashboard symbol says lights are on. No other error symbols. High beams work. Where to start looking?

I'll check that but no bulb out induction on the dash which I have had when a parking bulb went out. FYI this is a solera RV. Not a truck.

2012 Solera. No dash indication when my low beam bulbs failed. OEM bulbs lasted about 25K miles. Note that they are on all the time the engine is running - not just at night. Auto store replacement bulbs only lasted about 5K miles. Recently got some Hella bulbs from Amazon - hope they are more like the OEM bulbs.

might be a dumb question, buy why not just get the OEM bulbs from the dealer?

No convenient Mercedes Sprinter dealer around here. The Hella bulbs I now have installed are: Amazon.com: HELLA H83145101 H7 Series 55 Watt 12 V Xenon Premium Halogen Bulb: Automotive. No longevity data on these yet - only a few months since install.

Also, check the fuse, on some vehicles there is a separate fuse for low beams and high beams!!

This is not some vehicle this is a solera and this is a solera specific forum. Thanks anyway.
