Question Wobbly side mirrors

Just got the beast and drove it to the storage facility. I noticed the side mirrors were very wobbly. After getting it parked I went and checked out said mirrors. The mirror frame was strong but the rv wall where the mirror was attached was not as strong as I would have liked. On the DW side someone had put a 6" 2x4 and it was an attempt to stabilize the mirror. Any one have any suggestions to correct the problem?

I had this with mine. There aere screws that hold the mirror on. I was able to reach them "in back" and turn em with a visegrip and get em tight. Threads here describe how to get the whole mirror off to tighten the screws, but mine wouldn"t budge.

I had a problem with loose mirrors on a 2001 Dutchstar. They were screwed into the fiberglass using 1 1/2 inch stainless steel metal screws which I replaced with 1 1/2 inch stainless steel bolts with an identical phillips head. I was able to reach the back of the fiberglass and used large stainless steel washers and a locknut to provide a stable and tight fit. Cured the problem for good.

A temporary fix would to be to stuff foam rubber behind the mirror. Worked for the add-on mirrors I had on my truck

My driver mirror fell right off. The moron that sold me the RV tried to fix it with big carriage bolts and a metal plate on the outside. I ended up replacing the rotted wood inside the wall. Sealed the mirror up properly to prevent more wood rot. The passenger was loose too but the wood was not as bad. I bought some 2-part synthetic wood. I injected it into the existing holes. When dried, this stuff is tough was wood, can be driiled, etc. Remounted that mirror.
