I have not needed to drive at night so I could not comment on this Headlight thread. On a trip a couple weeks ago, we had a family emergency that required an all day and night trip into Los Angeles, and wow, did I discover the headlight issue. I think I have to get out and shine a flashlight into my low beams to tell if they are on or not! When in very dark areas I kept fiddling with high beam, fog, whatever to see what actually worked. Fortunately the fog/driving lights are good as others here have reported. Also fortunately I don't plan to drive at night much so it's low on my priorities.

Are they sealed beams or standard reflector type lights like a car?

Reflector type light newer cars. At first I thought maybe kerosene.

Forest River has informed the dealer I bought the Moho from that only two complaints have filed on the headlights ? So not a real concern for the factory? They also suggested that I could change the lights with a Chevy Silverado headlight and that might help ? Any one who has an issue needs to complain to get this issue corrected

mmarchand: I emailed Mitch W at FR last night and let him know that I had the same issue and it was a major safety concern. I also took the opportunity to address the other safety issues I've encountered since picking the coach up in April (missing exhaust system and failure/falling off of the wipers). A letter came this last week saying there was a safety recall concerning the seat belt/shoulder straps that had been issued....seems like someone at FR needs to be in charge of figuring out if their vehicles are actually safe enough to be put on the road or not!

Changing to Chevy lights is an interesting approach.. I guess the mounts would be the same since this is not like Legos where you can just add and change stuff. Short of trying different bulbs (some might not be DOT legal) if the reflectors stink the lights will stink.

Didn't know how bad mine were until my Christmas road trip. They were very dim and aligned mostly to the right. The dealer checked it out when I got back and they ended up ordering a whole new headlight for one of them...not sure which one or why since they still have it for a few other issues. Will let you know more and if it resolved the problem, once I get it back...right now it is probably stuck in 3 feet of snow on their lot!

You must not travel at night much either. I will be anxious to see what your dealer comes up with. I don't plan on pursuing it, dealer would be clueless and the fog lights work pretty well. If there is some reasonable fix I may do not myself. Let us know... Standing by!
Thanks

Any Legacy owners out there in Texas, Virginia or any other state that requires a periodic inspection of your vehicle for safety? Just wondering how that went with these headlights......

Yes, in VA, mined passed inspection, but all they do is turn them on and off for functionality.
