Mirror glue

Does anyone know what the hard white glue is around the mirrors in bedroom and what is holding in the mirror under the front bunk?

I don't know what's holding the mirror in on the front bunk, but I pressed to hard on a corner of it while cleaning this weekend and it cracked. 7 more years of bad luck for me. There is nothing behind the lower right corner. It is now coming out as soon as I have time. It really serves no purpose anyway, at least I can't see behind me when I glance up at it. I'm going to replace it with an actual rear view mirror so if things start banging around or falling in the coach while I'm driving I can actually see what it is.

Mine came loose at all four corners Antone rattling around up there so I covered it with duct tape, shattered it and took it out. It's all raw wood under there, the bottom side of the bunk. I stained it to match the surrounding wood.

Oh, I guess I'm at 14 years. Broke the one under the bunk 1st trip, trying to suction cup a GPS to it. 3 years later got pushed by a gusts of wind and wife took out one of the wardrobe mirrors. Went to a glass company and they make the safety mirror by applying a backing to the mirror. Had both made for like $60-75 I forgot exact amount but it was by square inch. The wardrobe has little metal tabs that hold it in and used silicone calk recommend by glass company. But I was really trying to find out what the hard white glue they used by factory. The front mirror was held in by dabs of same product.

So I guess nothing is holding it in under the bunk? Wowza! Glad I broke it now too!

Well I don't think it can fall out it's larger than the hole. The new one slides in from the side closest to the rear of vehicle while bunk is down and one screw removed.

I added two more acrylic mirrors in the blank spaces to the left and right under the bunk I used 3M two sided mounting tape and they haven't moved a bit

I did notice that the plastic strip on the bedroom dresser right side right door strip fell out so I used hot melt on that.
