How can the mirrors of a Dodge Ram 3500 be adjusted to minimize blind spots while driving?
Answer: In order to optimize the car mirrors' range of vision, certain adjustments to the side view mirrors are needed. The usual position of the driver's side view mirror enables the driver to see a portion of the Dodge Ram about 1/3 the size of the mirror. The same is the case for the passenger side view mirror. However, the vision allowed by the positions of both side view mirrors is already visible on the rear view mirror. To fix this repetition, the side view mirrors can be adjusted in such a way that the side of the Dodge Ram is not visible or barely visible. This widens the sight range such that what is not seen on the rear view mirror is visible on the side view mirrors. However, it would take time to adjust with the new arrangement. If adjustment is difficult, adding convex side mirrors is also ideal.
How can towing mirrors aid the Dodge Ram 3500?
Answer: Not all cars come with towing mirrors; however, truck types like the Dodge Ram 3500 are more likely to use them when towing caravans or other large objects. Also, larger trucks mean wider blind spots. Towing mirrors reduce blind spots and ensure safety. Additionally, they are easy to install as they can be slid over existing mirrors.
How do convex type mirrors widen visibility scope?
Answer: Ideally, passenger side view mirrors are made up of convex mirrors. In contrast to the flat driver side view mirror, the passenger side is curved. This enables a compressed view and as a result, covers a wider field of view. Also, objects seen in the Dodge Ram's convex mirror appear smaller. This helps minimize blind spots for the driver. To widen the scope, the driver side view mirror may be changed to convex type. It may take a little time to adjust, but the mirror will definitely widen the driver's visibility range.
