    ok I picked up a setting of towing mirrors the other day for my 07 NBS GMC. The truck is manual windows and mirrors from the factory. The towing mirrors I got are power. I am wondering if there is any way to get at least the heater element in the mirrors to work, as I think it might be useful during snow storms, especially when sleet is coming down to keep them from freezing over. Would it be as simple as running power to the heated element in the mirror w/ an on/off switch? Thanks.

    It is possible to get the heater functions to work by hardwiring with a switch. But the other options (turns/power adjust) forget it. Nothing will be factory installed in the truck to control those ones.

    On mine they work off the rear window defrost button, or like B@B said you can just wire in a toggle.
