2018 Axis 25.3 Headlight aiming

Just picked up our rig and the headlights aim too low. I found the two adjusting holes in the fiberglass and am hoping someone knows the correct tool to use before I try every tool in my box. Phillipshead? Socket? Star? Hex?

Thanks in advance.

can you get an eyeball on it? Is it Thor exclusive or did the headlight come off a standard vehicle?

Unless someone else pops up with the correct answer, I'd say start with phillips and work your way thru your tool box. Can't really tell from the pic, but the hole looks small, if in fact, that is the adjuster. you will probably have to climb underneath and sit up to adjust and see what you are doing. Make sure you do a proper adjustment, and not a "I think that looks ok" job.

Motorhomes notoriously have weak headlights. You might consider replacing the lights with brighter bulbs. For us, we rarely drive on the dark, so I haven't considered that mod.

The last vehicle I adjusted the headlights required a phillips screwdriver, that probably hasn't changed.

Thanks. I'll try Phillips head first. Got the thing parked today. The tapered front works well.Click image for larger version
