Clearwater LED settings

All, I just installed Clearwater Erica's and Darla's on my 2015 RTW. I'm reaching out to ask what settings everyone has found strike a good balance between adding conspicuity and blinding oncoming drivers.

The company tells me the factory settings are 50% day/ 30% night for Darla and 30% day/ 10% night for Erica. 100% on high beam for both.

To me these factory settings are too bright in day. I'm planning to ratchet down, but would like to learn from other user's experience.

thanks in advance for any and all input.

My Ericas are set at 80% day and night.....100% bright I want to be seen and see at night.....Aimed correctly, I have had no cagers flash lights at me in the day or night..I know they see my when I come up from behind because they move over a little...During the day, never had any issues

Re: Clearwater LED settings

I have Erica's on my '15 RT and I run them 50% on low beam and 100% on hi-beam. Love these babies!
