Moving Passenger Side Mirror?

Is it possible to move the entire mirror about an 1"? Where I have my seat adjusted to I have to lean back to see the best view out of the mirror. I have tried to adjust the mirror itself, but it does not get the view I can get my leaning back.

Probably not. Unless your particular mirror has movable arms between the mount and the mirror housing itself. Some diesel coaches have this movement as they are quite often mounted to the front edge of the motorhome.

On mine, and probably most gas motorhomes, the mirrors are mounted on the side of the motorhome. The mirrors are Velvac brand, and the mount is one piece from mounting to the body of the motorhome, up to the housing. Not much movement other than by the motor of the mirror surface itself.

On my DS you can adjust the mirrors. At the underside of the mirror arm, there is a removable plug, that gives you access to a nut, or bolt (i donít remember). If you loosen the nut, you can adjust the angle.

If you could post a picture of the mirror you will get better advice. My hunch is the mount where the mirror is fastened to the arm that is attached to the body, swivels which will give you the option to swing it in or out. I did that on my Country Coach Affinity.

Even the fixed mount ones like Velvacs can be re-positioned to give the motor a different range of motion.

If you're referring to your Tiffin Allegro, I don't know.

On your VTDP, yes, you can remove the cap at the bottom, loosen the nut, and swing the mirror arm forward and back through a range of about 135 degrees. Be careful not to increase the total width of your coach (coach plus mirror) beyond safe limits. You may need to use an Allen wrench to fine tune mirror position/tilt.
