How do you adjust the side mirrors on a 06 Dutch Star. I had the mirrors lowered by Leander last week and picked up the
coach today. The right mirrow is way out of adjustment - shifted out by the wind which was horrible coming back to
Louisville from Nappanee.

I need to adjust the mirrow head and move the arm out 2/3 inches for a better view.

Thanks

Remove the cap under the bracket that mounts the arm to the MH. Should see a large nut. Loosen and the arm should move. Mine was stuck extra good so I padded the arm and gave it a good jolt with a heavy object and got it to move. Good luck

Let me show my ignorance. Who is Leander? And what did he charge?
I've GOT to do something about our mirrors.

Leander is one of the lead techs at the Newmar factory.

Thanks,
I have lowering the mirrors on the list I sent Newmar for a 3/30/09 appointment. I've received confirmation of the date from them but nothing about the price.

John,

Wouldn't you be under warranty?

The cost for lowering the mirrors was $500.

Now I need to adjust the right mirrow.

Would a mod like this be under warranty?

Unfortunately, no warranty on lowering the mirrors.

Hi! It sounds like a fair price for the amount of work involved. Paul
