Mirror

Does anyone know how to remove the whole mirror arm on a Thor Aria 3601. The whole arm is loose and I canít figure out how to tighten it up. I canít access it through the generator compartment or from the inside by the dash. I know there must be some bolts in behind the chrome looking piece on the mirror but donít know how to access them. Any help would be appreciated

dpavlosky-

There are two major mirror suppliers for motorhomes: Ramco (link here) and Velvac (link here).

Ramco's instructions are here.

Velvac's instructions are here.

Look at the bottom of the mirror and you will see a cap. Pry it off with a screwdriver. Look up inside and you will see a bolt. Loosen it up and the whole mirror assembly will become loose. It is good to have a helper hold it while you are working on it. The chrome cover also becomes loose and you can slide it up on the arm to see four lag bolts. I backed them out, and put silcone on them, and then tightened them up. It has lasted over a year now.

Teblues: I loosen the bolt under the mirror and actually took it all the way out with help of a camping buddy. This did loosen the whole arm up out of the socket but the chrome plate cover did not move and it did not become loose when we removed the whole arm out of the socket. Did you have to use a screw driver to pry the chrome cover plate loose because mine would not budge. thanks

It has been over a year, but I think it just came loose. Try prying with a screwdriver or tapping with a rubber mallet lightly.

They often run a bead of silicone around the mirror mount, which will make it stick.
