Make an alum plate to go under the mirror and cover the bad holes.

I think the Coachman gang at FR is getting better but as this case demonstrates, they have some QC ground to cover before they hit an acceptable level of product quality.

I'll bet the person who attached that mirror knew he/she did not have it located correctly. So when does training embrace team work and forgiveness? If you punish employees when they make a mistake, they're not going to admit making one.

Personally, I guess I should be happy. With all the problems I had with our coach, none were such that body work or major changes were necessary to fix the problem. And GoMalley, you will fix all the problems, it just takes some time to find them all.

Had the same issue with my Georgetown this past week. I haven't taken the mirror off yet or had a tech look at it. Was the tech able to get behind the sidewall to see the mounting plate? How has the repair held up Thanks!

Same thing happened to my Coachmen. Removed mirror and tech put a mounting plate behind the fiberglass. The bracket that was there was grossly undersized.
