Can't see in new M.H.

Just purchased a new to us Holiday Rambler Vacationer. The right mirror arm needs to be rotated out for me to see the rear of the coach. I am not talking moving the head where to actual mirror is but the arm that attaches to the bracket next to the body. I have loosened the bolt on the underside of the bracket on the body and got it out. Sprayed blaster on it for two days and I cannot get the thing to budge. I have tried to push to arm up thinking maybe it is splind all to no avail. I would guess the arm and bracket are just pot metal so I don't want to beat on it too hard. Anyone out there have experience with this situation?

On mine there were 2 set screws (took an allen wrench) in the side of the arm under little plastic covers I had to pop off as well as the bolt at the bottom under a plastic cover. I then took a rubber mallet and tapped it.. and it moved where I wanted it to be. As I recall if you go to the manufactures web site they show the location of the set screws and the bolt

I agree with Ivylog, just loosen the bolt about 1 1/2 turns and whack the bolt head fairly hard with a hammer. Use a socket extension as a punch if necessary. It should come loose, and you can adjust as necessary.

Just did that yesterday.

Thank you for all the replies. The longer bolt did the trick. Needed a BFH to beat the bolt up but it finally gave way. Used anti seize when reposioning and now all is good.

Well now I know how to do this! Thanks for the information. Wanting to move my mirror a little also.
I am pretty sure the little plastic covers will be destroyed though so need to source them before starting.
Thanks again!
