Headlights

I have a 2012 Thor Tuscany 45LT and it has the original halogen headlights. I would like to switch them out for LEDíS. Anyone know how I can trade them out for LED?

Thank you,
Kneival

Most non LED headlights do not work very well with LED bulbs. The reflectors are designed for the shape and filament placement of the halagen bulb. Most LED bulbs are built completely different. This is why so many cars have the super blue mega glare headlights that blind everyone. The light beam can not be controlled by the halogen reflectors.

Your headlights (from me looking at pictures) look to be 5.75 inch round???
If so the best replacement will be something like a JW Speaker 8630.
There are cheap overseas knockoffs that are cheap for a reason.....they don't work very well. JW Speaker is one of the few really good 5.75 lights.

You will need to completely replace the headlight unit if you go this route. But the results will be the best you can get.
