Mine needs adjusted every few days also. Kinda irritating.

The Air ride can change the pitch of the truck the same as if you attached a trailer to the bumper. It can lower the back end which would result in the view being different thru the mirror.

Yeah, but that clearly isn't what is happening with these guys. The orientation of the truck is not going to change the driver's sight line through the mirror itself to the point where they are looking at the back seat rather than through the back window.
The mirror is clearly tipping downward over time.

When I first saw this post a while ago I thought people were imagining things. Sure enough I'm adjusting my mirror every morning and I'm the only one who drives it.

Taking mine to the dealer Friday 7-12-13 for the same problem. Not the only complaint.

None that I am aware of. If they replace yours the new one is just going to do the same thing. When you drop it off see if they admit that Dodge is aware and working on a fix. Curious if I'm just getting the run around.

I've had mine since July 17 and have not had to adjust the mirror since.

I've noticed that I haven't had to adjust it since we've been getting cooler weather lately. I'd adjust it about once a week or so when it was 100+ every day, but lately its been in the 80s and 90s here. Maybe its a heat thing? Of course that wouldn't explain why the Canadians have this issue.
