Check all the wiring especially the grounds. Take voltage reading at the power wires to make sure you have good voltages. Often a manufacturer will run under sized wiring to lights which result in voltage drop and lights dim.

The bottom ones should be Daytime Running Lights (DRLs). Only on when the headlights are off.

Proper aiming is the first step. Thor, nor any manufacturer aim the headlights, they just install them.

No, the bottom ones should be your turn signals. The light strips are the DRLs.

LEDs would be a great and easy diy
The only guaranteed way to find out which bulb you'll need it to take one out and check the #.
Be sure to update this thread, thanks

Replacing THOR headlights

Could you post a picture of the new headlights? How do you replace? Just remove bulb from behind the light.

I have similar setup in the THOR 2021, i notice the main lights are dim, but not bad enough to think of replacing.

What was the price of 2?

Lay down in front of coach and reach under, I had to buy a mechanics' creeper to roll myself around but can be done without it. The old bulbs twist off 1/4 turn
just remember the direction they came off clockwise or counter clockwise. The running light were $54.99 for 2 bulbs in the box i bought 2 boxes. Two bulbs for the running lights and two bulbs for the high beams. Autozone has them #001151307 LM57849-60-6 UltraBright Fog Light H8/H9/H11/H16 Buy 2 boxes. 4 LED bulbs in all. The bottom lights are turn signals ....Amazing difference they make. Bright and White

I think its easier to access lights thru the front RV cover, they are just right and left. I see that each light is a H9 Sylvania , so i will order 4.
