I am having trouble with my mirrors vibrating out of adjustment on a 1998 Ford350 Motor Home. Is there away to tighten these? Thanks, Blain

I have to ask this but wouldn't be better to fix the cause of the vibration first ?

My 1996 does this as well after about a mile of 55-60 mph I'm only seeing white lines go by. Driverside is worse than passenger so DD (Dear Daughter) is not having to adjust mirror as often.

I am not sure I am doing this right but thank you to those who replied. The vibration I am speaking of is mostly road jostle. I will check the Velvac site.

My mirrors do the same thing, however there is a set screw at the end of the arm underneath the mirror. I tightened that up and have gone 1200 mi. with no loosening. Mine is a 2002 minnie with the large black mirrors.

My outer shell wiggles about 1/16", but I don't think I want to disassemble the glass to get at the screws to tighten it. Will keep an eye on it though.
