Rear View Mirrors on 2007 Holiday Rambler Imperial

Good day.. My cousin bought her first RV about six months ago and is having trouble backing up. The RV is a 45 foot Holiday Rambler Imperial and seems to be very challenging for her. I am a retired firefighter and am DOT certified and have driven truck trailers, single and tandem axel, and many other configurations. I got into her motor home to back it up and the mirrors were not what I would can safe. The bottom half of the mirror is the bubble that takes in a huge area and I felt as though I need a pair of binoculars to see the rear tires. The mirrors are mounted way out in front of the driver and I have always seen mirror mounted just outboard of the leading edge of the where a door would be. Have any of you upgraded to something different? We are getting close to taking the motor home plunge and I have yet to see an adequate mirror on most of these large coaches. I would be grateful for any advice from fellow members. David

Take a look at this video, many more like it out there if this one is useful to you. Google adjusting RV mirrors. This is the one I used with my first RV.

I know the feeling about the mirrors. Gonna ditch my factory mirrors and replace with good old fashioned trucker mirrors from a dead 18wheeler tractor. Something to consider for yours but you may have to do fiberglass repair where old mirrors were. That's the only thing slowing me down on my upgrade.
