193 vs. 194 RV Bulb
When we are on the road traveling by night with our family or even by ourselves, it is very important that we have all of the elements of our car in check. That includes our tires, gas, and lights which people overlook very often. Many times, users replace the original bulbs from their RVs simply buying whatever they think will work but there are many options to choose from. It is something to put some thought into because improper use of your car’s lights can make it difficult for other drivers to see you and cause an accident. While having the right light is critical and essential during emergencies, when you stop on poorly lit roads, on roads or in tunnels.
When we use vehicle lights, not only do they light our way, they also help us so that others can locate us and know where we are going, so it is important that as drivers, we correctly interpret the circumstances of the moment and choose the type of lighting we should use, hence its importance for the safety of cars. The first thing is to know the type of lighting that your RV needs, to mention some:
- crossing, short-range or to see
- position or daytime running lights
- blinkers, etc.
