2002 Georgetown 303 Mirrors

Last year while on a trip out West from NY the drivers side mirror became loose, I found it was attached to the MH with dry wall screws. I tightened it up with longer screws. This year the passenger side mirror is also loose, used bigger screws but it appears the wood underneath is not holding. Is it advisable to drill completely through the side of the MH and use bolts to attach the mirrors? Is there any wiring concerns drilling through?

It's hard to say what might be in there. Are the mirrors heated and adjustable by a switch inside?
Have you thought about filling the holes with epoxy and then redrilling with the original size for the screws? There are many two-part epoxys that adhere to just about anything. It's worth a try on a scrap piece of lumber.
