Dolphin mirrors

Backed out and twisted driver mirror. Adjusted it and still works with power adj but the mirror itself is loose and shakes in the case so much at speed it is almost useless. Down in Az now and would like to fix. Anyone have one of these apart?

Velvac was the supplier for NRV units. Velvac Recreational Vehicle Mirrors will give you the info.

Is the mirror locked into the mount tangs?

If you search for your coach year/model you can obtain the mirror p/n, then do a search for specific parts.

I have replaced a couple of items, however I was lucky, the adjusting mech. was ok.

If my memory is correct the adjusting mech is held in place by "push in" fittings. Try and seat the fixture.

My mirrors had a set screw that would loosen up at times, I ended up using lock tight.

How did you adjust the set screw? What kind of tool?

Use an allen wrench, there are two screws. Take one at a time out, put some blue lock tight on the threads and tighten the set screw then do the other one. The screws on my Dolphin would come loose until I did mine. Don't use red lock tight, takes 500 deg. F to remove the screws again.
