Rear View Mirror?

What do you guys use to make them stick to the windshield? My rear view mirror on my motorhome keeps falling off and its driving me crazy. I have tried everything from the 2 part 5 minute Epoxies to some industrial stuff called Barco that I got from work nothing seems to hold the damn thing on. If there is a magic glue out there I can use I would be extremely grateful if someone would tell me what it is.

Thanks,
JD

I tried different types many years ago until I went to my local Ford dealer and bought the right stuff. The mirror is still there now after over 20 years!

What Danny said just make sure that you clean the windshield & bracket real good if there is any thing on there it wont stick. If you have an auto glass place nearby they can do it also, sometimes at no cost. Mount the bracket only first let that set before you hang the mirror on.

Regular $.99 superglue works like a champ. I think its all about having the surfaces clean.
