Adjusting tow mirrors

I tow with a 2014 F150 crewcab. I just purchased a set of CIPA tow mirrors.
How is the best way to adjust the standard mirrors and the CIPA tow mirrors for the best view.

Adjust the outer mirrors so that you can see down the side of the trailer. That is why they stick out farther than the stock mirrors.

Adjust the inside mirror to help you see in blind spot. One way I gauge this is by adjusting the inside mirror so that if I lean my head over towards one mirror or the other, that is when I can see the edge of what I'm towing.

I bought the CIPA mirrors too and I'm happy with the set up.
