Bath Cabinet Mirrors

On my 2017 Greyhawk 31FS, we have noticed that the bath mirrors seem to be inexorably falling down. When we purchased the rig I noticed the double sided tape sticking out the top of the mirror - just figured I'd trim it off when I got the chance. But this past weekend, the right side mirror has its bottom edge a full inch lower than the cabinet door it is affixed (or not affixed) to. The left side is not near as dramatic, but falling nonetheless. Of course I am under warranty, but this seems to be a reasonably easy job for me to tackle with the exception of how to take the mirrors off and re-mount them properly. Any suggestions to get them off the cabinet doors and what product to use to remount them?

Yes, I should probably take it to my dealer and have them warranty it out, but I have had nothing but problems with the dealership and any warranty issues. I am not in a hurry to enlist their help anytime soon.

Thanks!

I'm in a 31FK so I'm going to guess we have similar bathroom mirrors. If so, first thing I'd do it pull the entire door from the hinges.

Then I'd probably tape up the entire mirror, shipping tape, just in case.

I'd gently slide, tug and or pry with a thin shim and see if I can pop the mirror off. Maybe some gentle heat to loosen the adhesive.

If I encountered any resistance, I'd probably take the entire door and mirror assembly to a local glass shop. And get their two cents.

If you get it off, then I'd probably head to Home Depot and pick up some special mirror adhesive. They make mirror tape, but given the extreme temp swings and the bouncing, I'd be tempted to apply some sort of mastic.

Thank you for the suggestions! I'm glad I was envisioning the same plan of action. The bumping and bouncing has me worried too. Maybe I should reach out to Jayco directly for the tape they use.

My 27.5 FW did the same thing. I removed the door and gently persuaded the mirror off. Took the doubled sided tape off, cleaned the back of the mirror and the face of the door. Reapplied new 3M double sided tape ( a lot more than Jayco had put on ) and reattached the mirror to the door. Everything seems well after doing this back in June.

If it happens again, I will repeat the above process but use a mirror glue or liquid nails.

We have the same problem with our 2016 31FS. I am planning on removing the door/mirrors and using liquid nail.

I have the 2017 Redhawk had exactly the same problem, mirror sliding down cabinet. It's due to heat inside coach when parked and stored and the use by Jayco of cheap flimsy glue tape probably from a foreign source like virtually everything else these days. My solution was to remove glass gently by pressing downward and reapplying the strongest adhesive 3M tape and applying a tiny spot of gorilla glue on four corners. This seems to have fixed problem. I have same issue with RV dealers. There concern is in selling them and nothing else.

@xmtraveler: Thank you for confirming it on a similar model. Now I have to stop telling my wife she's crazy about it sliding down. I just thought it was installed wrong. I'm gonna use everyone's suggestions of 3M tape and Gorilla Glue.

Use care when removing mirror to. prevent breakage. In order to remove from cabinet I used a heat gun similar to hair dryer on lowest setting to apply warm air to front of miror. With that it was rather easy to pull from. Cabinet I suppose due to the lousy adhesive used to mount it by Jayco.

I'm having the same issue with my 2017 Greyhawk 29 MV. I will try some of these fixes as soon as I am able. I am having a hip replacement in seven weeks and can't mess with this right now. I wonder how many RVs from Jayco have this same problem? Has anyone contacted Jayco about this?
