Drivers outside mirror rattling

does anyone have any idea what would cause an outside mirror on the drivers side rattle extremely loud to the point we can't talk to one another. this only happens when we increase our speed to 60 and above. the mirror has been replaced thinking this would handle the problem, no such luck. we have a winnebago 2012 sightseer. we have contacted winnebago and they have not had any other reports of this. any insight someone can give would be greatly appreciated.

There are clips that hold the mirror in place, you can probably see them by looking through the side between the frame and the glass. Are they all there, assuming that is the cause of the rattle. If they are all there you can re-position them to see if that helps the problem or contact the mirror maker and get extra clips to add.

Just thinking out loud.

In my old motor home I had the same issue. I put foam insulation around the inside of the mirror to hold the glass still. (not spray foam). The other thing is that the glass is supposed to be centered inside the housing to keep it from buffeting in the wind. So you center the glass and then move the housing to get your view. At that point the small moves you make with the power adjustments should be okay.

Your question is a good one and asked too often.

If the entire head is shaking, as is often the case, the set screws are loose. If this applies to you it is fixable but will most likely occur again.

If you look at the arm under the mirror head you will see two small plastic plugs with a slot in each. These can be removed with a small screwdriver but care must be taken. They are fragile. Once removed you will be able to insert a alan wrench to tighten the screws. This should remove most of the shaking and rattles. Mirror alignment in the head is a good idea to check as Wayne mentioned and stuffing foam (backer rod might work) behind the mirror as pcurt23 mentioned is also a good way to go if the head is secure and tight.

Happy trails and many of them.
