    I just used him again today that's the reason why I write about him. My tiny, little retract button. If you don't know him then I will describe him a bit:

    Tiny, next to the power mirror controls, not easy to use with a thumb, but very powerful. ::)

    What is his job ???

    Very simple ! He will use his power to automatically fold my outside mirrors so that I can pass narrow places or cars in small, tiny roads. And when I press him again my mirrors swing back in the old position.

    You say maybe a toy but here in our narrow roads where we have to move in inch distance between cars or walls it is very useful.

    Otherwise I had to climb out of my rig fold the mirrors manually, climb in, drive, come out again, refold the mirrors and continue my journey. :doh:

    I like my tiny, little button. :cheers:

    Mike

    My mirrors fold in automatically as well, as soon as they hit something hard enough :flipoff2:

    And with elec window down I can reach the pass mirror to fold it back out from the driver seat :cheers:

    Eric,

    I agree with Shed. Frequently when wheeling tight spots, we just hit the swtich to put the windows down. Just reach over and fold them in. You don't have to reach your seats.

    Shees, guess I won't be seeing ya at the next mensa meeting eh? :flipoff2: :D

    Junk,

    all this work (hit the switch for power windows, move and bend over, use force to fold them, return to your seat and start to drive again) for nothing. Just use the tiny, little button and you are free from all your problems.

    I hope you don't mind [​IMG]

    A nerdy option for cruisers, Im surprised yours doesnt have it :flipoff2:

    A button beside the remote mirror controls which, when pushed, winds the wing mirrors in against the car for tight spots, and opens them again when pushed a second time, to the pre set position.

    This is the mighty "button". It's a picture of my van's, but looks pretty much the same, I believe.

    Mot,

    your retract button is a giant. Mine is really tiny:

    The photo is poor I know but on top of the mirror button you can see the writing "Retract" and under a tiny button.
