Can't see down the right side!!

I have a 2009 2500 HD with the trailer mirrors. I am pulling a Wildwood 27' RBEC. With the mirrors extended all the way out I still can't see down the right side of my trailer. Only time that I can is when I am turning.

Any suggestions??

How about adding a spot mirror?

Is it a GM pickup??? I have the rv/towing mirrors and don't have any problems seeing down the right side of my trailer... I am assuming we have the same style truck.......

Not sure why you're having the problem you state.
Are we to assume you CAN see down the driver side okay?
Are we to assume the mirrors extend the same distance out from the tow vehicle on both sides?
Just exactly what is the width of the trailer?
What is the distance the mirrors stick out?
The trailer hitch IS dead center on the tow vehicle?
