I was either right or real wrong. If you look at my member photo which shows the RV parked in front of the garage you can see the garage doors. I also have placed some photos in an album but I'm not sure they have been released for showing yet.... If you notice in the photo of the mirror you will notice an allen set screw that holds the main mirror to the standoff post. I'm wondering if I were to loosen that set screw if the mirror would just pull up and off, providing there is enough slack in the wiring?
I too was going to suggest what many of the other posters have suggested. And that was/is to fold them in, counter steer past one mirror if it's mounted in such a manner as to precede the opposite one, and more. But, if you're actual opening is as you say, "9 feet wide" then, you more than likely will have to remove them.

9' equals 108". The "wide body" motor homes, usually after around '99 or later, are right at 102". But, that does not include the mirrors or, other outside mounted equipment. I just went out and measured our coach. Yes, it's right at 102" at the body. But, the drivers side mirror adds 13" to that side alone. And, the passenger side mirror adds real close to another 10".

So, that's a whopping grand total of 125". Now, there are set screws on ours that I can loosen and "ATTEMPT" to fold ours in some. But, I calculate I might, gain or, loose I should say, around 15". That would mean I'd still be at or near, 110" wide.

So, on the OPs coach, I have no idea what he'd gain, if any, if he could fold any portion of his mirror.
