You can also install the switch that I custom designed just for Blair;

Default Landing light angle

Could someone measure the angle of the landing lights in the body of an FC please? Mine were remounted outside the body and with my present tight situation entering and exiting the yard, I want to remount them in the tubes I am making for that purpose. Thanks in advance.

Rick

They are at 55 degrees on the PT's. Thats the shell angle the lights themselves have slight adjustmens also inside the mounts, ours looks square inside the mounts.

The landing lights are nice...as are the aux. back-up lights...

Something to consider is setting up your remote control roof top spotlights so they are stored for travel facing rearward and aimed just down and wide of the coach body. Set to "flood" they do great lighting up the side areas and toward the rear of the coach for late night arrivals. Being already aimed...you know when you hit the "on" switch they are already pointed where you want them...and no spotlighting the next door neighbors.

Of course...the best insurance is a team approach: a driver and a "comebacker".
