    Years ago when I played ice hockey, they made a face shield that was like a windshield and we used two different things to keep them from fogging or freezing. 1st thing was a product call NO FOG then other was shampoo. Our 1 ton doesn't have heated mirrors and it sucks when they get water from driving or plowing. It gets so bad the guys just have to get out and clean them off every so often.

    :laughing:I always wanted to "tap into" the nozzel that sprays the winsheild and extend the lines over to the mirrors and mount a nozzel on top of the mirror ( patent pending )

    I have heated mirrors too but the bottom towing mirror isn't heated. I would also like to find something to put on there. They normally get so covered in salt i have to clean the whole mirror anyway so i deice them while i clean.

    I was thinking about trying a heated grip element off of a snowmobile or motorcycle, aftermarket they onyly cost about $10. My thought would be to sandwich it between the mirror glass and the plastic its mounted to. Im pretty sure they are 12v. any one ever tried this, I dont know if it would end up getting to hot or not.

    Anti-fog in a bottle. Most snowmobile shops or motorcycle shops will have it.
