I don't know which deflectors you have but 1min into this video it says used upside down for LHD to RHD conversion.

You might be able to get the correct deflectors from one of our members on the other side of the channel, ones from the UK are the wrong type obviously.

I've definitely had LHD ones before... Probably somewhere on amazon.

But for years my LHD got through the MOT with properly placed duct tape. However, if regs have changed since 2017 this may no longer pass muster.

Drive your MH up to within a couple of metres of a wall and look at the beam pattern. Whatever bit slopes UP to the right must be masked off (thatís the part of the beam that dazzles oncoming drivers in the U.K.) A bit of trial and error should enable you to work it out
Tip....
Cover each headlight (or disconnect it) in turn so you only see one headlight dip beam at a time, much easier to then see what you are doing.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
