Eyebrow lights now white

During our tour of Keystone back a few months, Dwayne mentioned that the blue LEDs used for the eyebrows on the front were getting changed to white so the lights could be left on during traveling. The blue ones could not.

Our 3402RL built in November 2013 came in with the white LEDs. I notice this during PDI.

The blue lights are police lights. It was a oversite to put them on a Montana. Illigal to run. LOL

So if you have the blue ones I wonder if it makes your Montana more valuable as a collectors item?

If you have the blue ones and someone's going slow in front of you can you use the remote to get them to pull over?

Dick, I have heard lots of stories about volunteer firemen doing that in Missouri where they run blue lights. I don't think it's legal

They are not controlled by the remote anyway, so no go on getting the slow ones to pull over.

Do you think that stopped them?

Ours are white as well. We were wondering why the change. Now we know.

Blue lights - limited edition exterior lighting

When the 2011 Ford Superduty's went from two tone leather seats to monotone, some refered to those early builds as having limited edition seating.

Sorry davidaf, I believe they came out on the 2014 models. IF you have them, there is a switch for cap lights on the console that has all the other switches inside.

You are correct! I wandered out there and checked. Would have been funny if I missed them.

Some 13s have them. If so, there is a switch in the service console that is marked , "cap light".
