Night time surprise

Hi all. So my first night time driving experience ended up as a bit of a "white knuckler". I never thought of checking the headlights for proper alignment only made sure they were working. It was quite a surprise to find the drivers side headlight shining into the ground 15 feet in front of the vehicle. Thankfully the road wasn't extremely curvy. If you haven't driven at night yet, check 'em.

I noticed my headlights were kinda low during a quick night trip around town. Have not been on hiway yet to see how they are. They are not as low as yours are but lower than I normally use which is lower than most people have. My night vision is still very good and I never have trouble with lower lights than most have.


We are leaving Las Vegas tonight headed for central Missouri straight thru. I will be driving all night tonight. I wrapped my rig last night with Road Wrap and even covered the headlights. I may have to stop and cut those open but will wait and see.


I did look at the headlights quickly once to see if they could be adjusted but did not see any way to do so. I did not get under rig and take a hard look however.


Has anyone or does anyone know how to adjust headlights on our Precepts?

There are multi point adjustment mounts for all three axis. We are pulling an all nighter in 3 weeks so I'll be working on that. Hoping this is an isolated thing but want everyone to be aware and safe.

The rubber trim around the passenger headlight has come loose and upon investigation the fiberglass on the bottom of the opening is too thick for the trim to fit properly. Has anyone seen this, as well. The only way that I can see to fix it is to remove the headlight assembly and to dremel the back side down. How hard is it to readjust the headlights?

Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

Headlight alignment

Checked mine and got the same surprise. Taking it in on Wednesday for warranty work of other items. Have added this to list.

I used it three times so far with great results! Original wrap was for 3 days before removal and traveled from Southern Nevada to central Missouri. 2nd wrap was driven from central Missouri to Sturgis South Dakota and was on RV for one day only. Third wrap went from S.D to Nevada again and was on rig for two days.

I found putting edge of wrap just barely around corner of front cap an inch or so gave much less flapping. Covered headlights and cut out grill areas for engine cooling. Millions of Bugs but zero damage to Coach. I will use this Road Wrap on all long trips as long as I can find the stuff. It is not always in stock and I see CW is not showing it available today but that is where I got mine.

Got a call from the dealer stating headlights are "within specs". Will charge if they correct the lights to see better. Calling Jayco today.

Jayco said "Please have your dealer align the headlights and this will be covered by Jayco"
