How to Install the Longview Custom Towing Mirrors on a 2013 Chevrolet Suburban

Today on a 2013 Chevrolet Suburban, we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Longview Original Custom Towing Mirrors. These are slide-on mirrors, and they're sold as a pair. Part No. is CTM1600. Now let's take a look at the extended field of view we we're talking about. I'm pretty much directly behind the mirror here on the driver's side.

You can see me fine. That's not where the issue is. As I start stepping out to the side here, you're going to start to lose me right about in that area. Now this is also going to be where your trailer's at, where those tires are as you're pulling them around. That's where the towing mirrors come in.

You can see with just another little bit here all the way to about this area we're going to have a nice, wide field of view. This is going to make navigating, parking, getting through those campsites a whole lot easier on us. We're going to have a really nice snug fit. You can see our additional mirror doesn't move unless our factory mirror does. We've got a great custom fit that's going to go all the way around. That's going to give us full use of power or manual mirrors, the blinker that we've got, lane departure warning.

All that's still visible. We're not losing anything with our mirrors. What we're going to gain is a nice, large, scratch-resistant mirror. It's going to be fully adjustable so we can really customize our view as we're heading down the road. You see another nice thing I like. Still have that fold-in option on our mirrors.

That way a lot of people sometimes they'll just leave them installed on their car. Pulling it in the garage and they won't have to worry about it. Now this is going to be a durable, black ABS housing. It kind of matches up with the materiel that's on the vehicle already. Kind of gives it a factory look. Now if we look around to the backside, you're going to see these are going to taper down just like our factory mirror following that same contour. That gives us a good aerodynamic feel as it's going down the road, and it's going to prevent any kind of a vibration or wind noise that we might experience. They've placed pads inside of our mirror. You're going to have a felt pad here, a couple foam pads here. These take up any extra room in there to give that nice compression fit once that foam's kind of squished a little bit. It kind of grabs ahold. This is also going to help with that vibration and wind noise, keeping that at a minimum. Now for installation, we're going to keep our bracket here. We're going to place the circular one right through the end of the mirror. Slide it on and we'll just start our finger nut there. Now we slide this on. What we'll want to see is the bottom lip on the front edge and the top lip on the front edge of the mirror, and we'll just press until it stops. At that point, we can bring our hook right around the front lip of the mirror, and then just snug it down so we won't have to worry about our mirror moving around as we're heading down the road. That's going to complete today's installation of the Longview Original Custom Towing Mirrors. Part No. is CTM1600 on our 2013 Chevrolet Suburban.
