CCETEX: I am 5 months into the minor restore of an 84 similar to yours. I guess I have spent a little time working on every component. I have certainly taken excellent advice off the forum and I have received some good pointers and parts from Randy @ North Dallas RV. I'll be in Lubbock in mine in May; My daughter graduates from law school.

As you get started, don't hesitate to private message me with any questions you might have!
I have been to Lubbock, Colo Springs, and Canton in my so far. Having a blast.

God Bless,
PD

Mostly true! Except for the occasional break to make a repair.

Canton, Texas near Dallas. Largest outdoor shopping village you have ever seen. Hook ups right on the grounds. No facilities, but a very pleasant overnighter.

God Bless,

PD

Hello - I have an 89 345LE and the driver's side mirror all of a sudden tilts outward while driving. I can set it back upright but it will just tilt after driving a little. Any ideas? Thanks,

Not sure what your mirrors look like. On my rig (1984 310). There are set screws and bolts that can be tightened to secure the mirrors in position.

Can you post a picture of the problem mirror?

Driver's side mirror

The mirror is electric and it will adjust right and left but not up and down. I can hear the motor trying to make it work up and down but nothing happens.

To be specific, the whole unit/mirror head just tilts out. You can move it back upright by hand but it won't stay. The up and down mechanism is not working as I said and I think the problem is related to the tilting out but am not sure. The mirror head appears to be on a ball sitting in the arm.

Since my mirrors are not electric, my experience does not apply. Perhaps the actuating gears are stripped?

Do you know who the mfg of your mirrors is? Perhaps they can advise.

The adjustment for the ball is an Allen wrench bolt...should be located to the front and bottom of the arm...does any of this help, or is it just more confusing...?

Driver's side mirror

It tightened easily. Thanks. Now the side to side electric adjustment isn't working. The up and down works fine. I am wondering if I should force the mirror by hand to the left as it is directed so far right that maybe it is stuck. The passenger side mirror electric adjustment is working fine. What do you think?
