Headlights

Does anyone know how to access/change out the headlights on the FR330DS? Did anyone receive any diagrams/info when the unit was purchased re the headlights?
Thanks

Open the front grill doors to gain access to the rear of the headlights.

All I know it's the head lights really sick. Looking for a good alternative. Suggestions?

We haven't used ours yet. Are they not bright enough? Will be checking into that.

They are so dim they are almost useless. Fog lights are better but blind on coming traffic.

Are you changing the headlights? If so what brand/ model are you using? Thanks for the guidance.

Driving lights

The “fog lights” on my 30DS are actually driving lights, HELLA/OPTILUX 2500 angel eyes (hlah 71010451).

Driving lights should have their hot spot 4” below the height of the lights as mounted on the RV when parked 25’ from a wall. Mine were shining in my second story widow when I brought it home ( and the FR3 is parked about 50 to 60 feet behind the house and 10’ to 12’ to the right! The factory uses the brackets supplied from HELLA so they can be adjusted.

I know the headlights are accessible from the engine compartment but how would you remove a bulb or adjusted them?

My plan for headlights.
Rigid industries led ad ons. They come in 3 inch square D series (a different model number) and these shorter wide ones. The SRQ series. They have different models, driving, fog, spot, and diffused.

I plan on mounting the SRQ driving model in the grille bottom slot so they are as close to the factory head as possible. On order as a Xmas shift to myself. Will let u know how they work after installed.

This kit is expensive considering we shouldn't have to augment a factory required item. But I feel worth it. They come with a "plug and play" harness and pre wired switch and relay.

Rigid Industries 91531 SRQ2 White Driving LED Light, (Set of 2)
Rigid Industries $352.
