Is it just a bulb issue or would you have to replace the entire light? Like can you just buy a stronger bulb to replace the stock? I ask because I at night a lot.

The problem is some times you have to drive a night. But consider we all have spent the best part of 100 thousand and have these very big safety problems lights , Handing , fix handing on my own in Florida these things Forest River should have done. I have been a CDL driver for 40 years not first rodeo these thing are not right.

Lights may just be adjustment. Handle have dealer move sway bar links on front and back to inner holes to increase roll residence you will be very happy or do your self .

I just bought a 2015 Georgetown 364TS in January and took a two week trip. Lights were terrible at night. Center of the road ahead was pitch black. On close inspection, I saw that the rim of the high beam light fixture protruded forward so far that it blocked out part of the headlight beam! Since I consider this a safety hazard, possibly worthy of a recall, I contacted the FR tech rep who asked for pictures, which I sent mid Feb. Haven't heard a peep since. If others think their problem may be the same, we need to turn up the heat with FR and find out their current position on this important issue. (I don't know if this may be an issue on other than Georgetowns.)

1. lights are way out of adjustment ( rv needs to be loaded when done)
2. Light bulbs could be brighter
Still have jet lag from trip when weather inproves will test drive play with adjustments or just take back to dealer.

Carl17, If you find that an adjustment solves the problem, please let us know how to do it.
