The left side lower (convex?) mirror departed from it's mounting glue. I have been unable to find (online) a source for replacement parts. I did find complete heads but surely, someone, somewhere sells just the glass. My paperwork shows these to be VelVac model 2005. The application is on a 1998 Monaco. Any help will be appreciated.

Hey Bama...Maybe if you just grabbed the Sawzall and cut the mirror off - then you would have a reason to get the complete assembly...

..I just could not resist! I will make a phone call today OR you can call NorthWest RV supply...and see if they have one.

Happy New Year to you & TOWMBO

That link doesn't get you to the page I had hoped, so here are guided mis-directions
1. Click on link above.....
2. Scroll down to bottom of page,,click on select mirror by photo..
3. Click on "other class A"
4. Scroll down to Model 2005 and click on it.
5. Click where it says "service parts" (kind of a green color)
6. Add convex mirror (or maybe the repair kit) to cart and checkout.

I bought a replacement glass for my mirror direct from Velvac and it came with instructions on how to install as well. Just be very careful looking through the list of models, because several were very similar in my case - and it took a bit of reading and research through the Itasca manuals to make sure I got the right part. It was only something like $25 for one glass and shipping was very quick.

Thanks! I swear I had already clicked every blasted link and salvage yard on the planet but y'all put me in the right place in about 30-seconds! I owe you all a frosty beverage, or maybe a hot toddy depending on your current temperature.

We just returned from a 2K mile, multi-state, multi-campground trip. The mirror fell off first, the fuel shutoff solenoid (recall my 2-year battle with melting solenoids) fell off next (all three mounting bolts snapped or vibrated off) but at least the solenoid itself is intact (found it hanging by the wiring harness) and not to be outdone, the AquaHot decided that I had put off the yearly maintenance about 2-years too long and it refused to function in North AR with the temps in the upper 20's and a 30-amp electrical service. However, I wouldn't take a gold monkey and a treein' coon dog for the Monaco. We had a great time visiting with family and were able to laugh at our insignificant misfortunes. I gotta tell ya though, lifting the bed every time you have to stop the engine gets to be tiresome pretty quick!

Thanks again for your advise. Mama, you ought to be ashamed pickin on me like that.

Ha, I think you just like to read my spellin' and recipes for exotic dishes like possum & tatters.

I did accomplish one repair which was to pull PM on the Aquahot. Replacing the nozzle (jet?) and adjusting the ignitor gap was a snap. I had forgotten just how easy that was. So, next year, I won't freeze my berries before doing the recommended maintenance. The fuel solenoid will another beast altogether though. This will require some mechanical and contortionist skills which I am not particularly blessed with.

Data point: we averaged 7.7MPG when running at slightly elevated interstate speeds (I was in a hurry the first day) and 6.7MPG running slightly below the posted limit (this tank included Aquahot use). The EvenBrake was quite noticeable during several quick stops and even more noticeable when it kicked in going downhill and hitting bumps! I have it set at the lowest sensitivity and braking settings too.
