Need To Remove Wall Mirror 2011 Winnebago 37F

We have a 2011 Winnebago 37F and have to change the mid-coach 1/2 bath mirror that is attached to the wall. Anyone know exactly what Winnebago used to mount this mirror to the wall? My take is they used a top secret adhesive that was developed by the NASA Space Station Program on this 2011 Winnie. Has anyone successfully removed a mirror on a Winnebago like this?

Several years ago I had to remove a mirror in our then Winnebago Tour. I found that the mirror was attached to the wall with two sided tape. The easiest way I found to remove the mirror was to use a piece of fishing line long enough to stretch from side to side and to use a sawing motion to cut through the tape adhesive. This method will also work to cut through mirror mastic, just take longer.

The adhesive idea makes sense to me, but we have a friend who removed his mirror and found out there were some slots in the back of the mirror and with a custom tool he had to turn some mounts screwed into the wall that fit into the slots. I'd try the adhesive idea first and if that doesn't work see if you can get or use a custom tool to turn the mounts.

Mirrorgate success!

Finally had the time to attack the mirror project again. Yes, the mirror is ONLY held onto the wall using 4 long strips of 2-sided tape. Patience & Caution win again. By using Harbor Freight's $8.99 Trim/molding set we were able to pry just enough pressure between the mirror and the wall which enabled us to slowly pull the mirror from the wall with NO damage to the wall. Using Harbor Freight Glass suction cups helps also. Put a nicer mirror in it's place and we are pleased with the outcome. Thank you all.
