If it's tight when parked probably a tire out of balance.

Probably the mounting screws are slightly loose. You can check this by pushing up on the mounting arm when parked. Only a very small amount of play will make the mirror "vibrate".

Common problem that is easy or solve. Happened to me last fall. Had to remove the mirror from the arm to remove the mounting cover. There were 4 screws that needed to be tightened, problem solved.

Find the mirror make and search the forum to find how to remove the mirror.

Find out what is causing the vibration and fix that. Problem solved!!
Has it vibrated ever since you got the rig? If not, something is amiss.
Good luck.

ours was vibrating and it was the whole mirror arm was loose on the body...
was able to tighten the nuts from the inside of the body by sliding the genny out and reaching up and around - glad it wasn't the passenger side - it's clogged up with 'stuff' over there

I agree. I had the same thing. Mirror vibrated from out of balance tire and I couldn't feel it in the steering wheel.

good luck

Yep! Most probable culprit is tire out of balance. Been there experienced that.
