FR3 LED headlights

Just picked up my new 2015 FR3 30DS and I have a question. Do the LED rings on the headlights only go on when you turn the led awning lights on? I thought they would go on when the headlights were on? Thx

The 2015 Model FR3 are wired as an LED package where the headlight halos and awning light halos are on one switch on the dash.

That is definitely a strange setup. Why would u want your awning lights on when your driving down the road, why do you want your front LED's on when your parked at a site?

The LED lights are not meant to illuminate the road when driving. They are there to illuminate your RV at night and to help you or others to locate your RV after taking a stroll around the campground, etc.

Ya that's what I guess it comes down to. I just think that having the front LED's on would give it a great look driving down the road.

The LED lights on the front were disturbing to the campers who were camped in front of us at a campground. They thought our headlights were on because they were so bright in the dark. We have declined to use our awning lights because the front lights disturb other people around us. It would be nice if there were a way to disconnect the front lights from the awning lights.

Were you able to determine a way to leave the awning lights on but turn the front lights off?

I posted earlier that I cut the wire that goes to the awning, and put a switch at the door for the awning
now the original switch turns on the head light led, and the other switch the awning led

How about better headlights for the FR3.

The stock units are easily the worst illumination ive ever seen on a vehicle.
is this others experience, or are mine just bad?
