Driver side mirror blocking side window

I have a Pace Arrow 38P and the driver side mirror blocks my view out from the front side window see attached picture I hope 1st pic. I am able to move the arm both outward as well rotate the mirror. My concern is the distance the mirror is from the side of the coach. Are there any restriction or other concerns. I am working on the reflection issue in the mirror as well.
Thanks Gene

Gene-

Mirror location is a personal preference. I prefer my driver side mirror where yours is. Any further back and I am looking away from the windshield for too long; any further forward (including out the windshield) and I can’t see clearly enough. In practice I find that location really doesn’t block much I would otherwise see.

Those of us with side-positioned mirrors make a glare protector. It mounts on the A-pillar and sticks out from there towards the driver seat. It’s quite effective. There are several posts on how to make one.

Put the see throw sun shade down when backing up in full sun light. To reduce glare.

Here's a link to a thread on making a driver-side glare shield.

I made one, and it works very well!
