Mirror falling in bathroom

Anyone know how to fix mirror in bathroom on medicine cabinet that's coming off?
Our appears to be slowly sliding down cabinet wooden door. It's only on by double side tape.
While at the service center for month the heat caused it to slide about 2 inches down. But we can't seem to get it to budge w/out fear of breaking it.
Didn't know if we heat the mirror w/ blow dryer if it would cause damage to mirror.
Then once we get the mirror off how can we attach it w/out using double sided tape. This seems like a horrible design. I can't image what would happen if mirror was to fall off while someone is opening or closing cabinet door.
Camper is under warranty but I'm tired of running camper to service. It's been in the shop more than out. Just got it back Friday and took it out this weekend to find the mirror issue.

You can try using fishing line in a back and forth sawing motion behind the glass. Just make sure someone is holding the mirror.

Gorilla Construction adhesive will fix that and we use it for anything that doesn't need to be screwed in our Jayco--and the inside temperature in storage is typically 120 F on a hot day, but it holds.
Construction adhesive is typically used for vanity mirrors in homes.

I fought this problem on my last 2 Jaycos. My answer was to take the medicine cabinet door off it's hinges and mount it upside down and let the mirror slide back down. I then put a very small screw on the bottom to keep it from sliding past the bottom again......Sounds stupid but it worked.......twice.

The Redhawk we bought had the same issue when we took delivery. They have ordered us a new one under warranty but seeing these makes me believe it'll just happen again.

If so, I'll do as others suggest and use fishing line and heat to separate the mirror and reattach it with something like liquid nails.

I looked at two eagle fifth wheels on local dealers lot, one mirror was on the floor broke and other one was about to fall off. Can't believe Jayco would use double sided tape to hold a mirror on, what's next bubble gum?

Be careful what type of adhesive you use, if its not made for mounting mirrors it may eat the silver off the back of the mirror. If the fish line idea doesn't work try picture frame hanging wire it is stronger, faster, and won't break.

Even that won't work! We tried it and followed mfg instructions exactly.
