Conversation Mirror

Keep meaning to ask this to the group.... ever wonder why the conversation Mirror is in the middle and essentially unusable? ?,, seen in other motorhomes, and they are always above the driver to talk with company behind in the cabin.

Conversation Mirror

Mine is in front of the driver.. All you can really see it's the side of the slide out. Not really functional either

I just purchased a clip-on wide-angle panoramic rearview mirror, and rigged my own way of attaching it to the sun visor over the driver's seat.........most sun visors are too high to be useful in motorhomes anyway. A little searching in the Auto accessory chains should find you one. See the links below.

Gives me a pretty good view rearward inside, but it's a little distorted, but does the job for having a quick eye to eye when talking with passengers.

I broke mine pushing a suction cup for a GPS on it. It's only glued in.

I've never understood the reasoning behind putting that mirror where it's located (on FR3's). I've heard horror stories of that mirror falling and breaking while heading down the highway.
May as well send me hate mail also, because I agree with Mojojojo. :-)

I felt that the mirror needed to go all the way across as well. So, I had a local glass company cut me some safety mirror panels to fit into the spaces. If you're going to go this route, make sure to get the mirror with the safety membrane adhered to to the back. I then unscrewed the wood frame, and attached the mirrors to the back, like the factory mirror.
I hope that helps.
