Mirror question

We just picked up a used '07 40'Phaeton on Saturday, our first coach. The outside drivers mirror is out front to be viewed through the windshield. With the drivers seat in my position the "A" pillar is in the way. Can that mirror be rotated back to be viewed through the side window? I find nothing in the owners manual.
Thanks.

Not familiar with your type of mirrors, but on ours, there are two allen screws at the inboard end of the mirror arm that can be loosened and the arm adjusted.

Edit: If your arm looks like it's hanging way outboard, you might look to see if it might need to be moved further forward. Just a thought.

Try it I did mine, and it is great. It may take you a while to get used to the look of it, with the passenger side forward and the drivers back. But once you make the decision it works great.
Loosen the swivel bolts sufficiently so you can feel any tension from the internal wires and cables, once in position, snug up the swivel bolts and then adjust the mirror from the drivers seat. If everything works add more tension to the swivel bolts.

Good luck with your Bus.

Peetz.. if you are going to swing your mirrors out, be aware you have in essence made the coach wider which may come into play going through toll booths, or anything else with narrow clearances.

Mine on my Allegro Bus are in front of the coach instead of being mounted on the sides like some of the other coaches I have seen. I was going through a toll booth and the attendant told me to move over closer to the other side. He said I would not believe the number of mirrors he had seen knocked off motor homes going through his booth. I had thought about moving mine more outside of the coach until he said that. Once I got the right position with them still in front I could see fine.

On my unit, the drivers side mirror is closer to the side/window than it was when it was in front. Reducing the overall width by 3 inches.
