Loose Mirror

Hello all I have a 99 National RV 5350 Dolphin V10 Ford F53 and the passenger side is loose where the mirror attaches to the mirror mount and is turning in or out while driving down the road. I had to stop 6 times on our way home to turn it in and i can't seem to figure out how to tighten it up... Please Help

Look closely around the base of the mirror head. There should be a allen head set screw. I had to cut an allen wrench down to about 3/4" to fit in the limited space on mine.

The image below is of a 1999 Dolphin. It has mirrors that hang down. If yours looks like this, the mirrors are made by Velvac. For help with tightening the head, the post in an old thread linked below might help. If not, you might want to post again in the National RV Owner's forum to see if you can get more specific responses from owners of coaches like yours.

Click here to go to the post referenced to see if it helps

I had one of my Velvac mirrors come loose. The "mud wasps" had filled the hole where the set screw was. I had to dig a bit to get the allen wrench into the screw. I got it tight and it's been fine for many miles since.

Take some self sticking rubber seal from auto parts store and attach it to next to the mirror. It will hold mirror in place but you can adjust it still. Easy fix.

If it is a Velvac, call them, they are very helpful.
