What's behind you? That's a question all RV drivers ask themselves quite often. Can I change lanes without crushing someone in their sub-compact? Another good question. Alas, many RV's have big blind-spots to contend with. Many of them are equipped with large mirrors, some even split with wide-view or convex lenses that allow you to see a great deal more than a stock flat mirror. Unfortunately, that doesn't always complete the picture. What can you do??
Yes, OK... I hear you...now WHAT'S the solution already?
Many companies make stick-on or glue-on concave mirrors that adhere to some section of your existing mirror. Simple solution. I've tried both types of mounts. While they both use a double-sided tape method to attach, the first kind has a stem with a ball joint that allows you to adjust the mirror in all directions. This one works OK, but it has a mind of its own. They seem to move whenever and wherever they want to, especially when they begin to wear or deteriorate from the elements. The other style is a bit more elegant and robust.
One of my absolute favorite things is a simple, elegant solution to a complex problem. While this is certainly not like finding out that kiwi fruits cure cancer, it was a particularly vex-some problem when I was driving. I don't usually enjoy running poor souls off the road since I can't see them! As with any solution, Your Mileage May Vary (YMMV.) But I'm guessing that these will work as well for you as they do for me. At only $3.29 at Wally-World it was quite a bargain.
One caveat, make sure your mirror is completely clean before sticking them on!! I used an alcohol wipe first. Any dirt or grime will negatively impact the adhesion of the tape and you may go to take a look at your nice mirror and find it's gone off on it's own down the highway. 'Nuff said.
