Rear View Mirror - Lights on bottom

All, do the lights on the bottom of the Velvac Mirrors work? If so, mine don't and I am not sure how to make them work. I have not taken them apart to see if the bults are burned out yet. On the "to do" list, but wanted to make sure they were even wired in first. TYIA.

Monty- check your front turn signals. If those work, I'll bet the mirror turn signals are simply not hooked up. If front signals don't work it is likely the output on the Vansco.

Mine work, in fact I replaced original mirrors with the LED arrow type mirrors and scabbed onto the wiring for the bottom lights to operate the LED arrows.

Mine work. They are only on as turn signal "flashing" lights and are tough to see from inside the coach. Unlikely that both bulbs would be burned out, but probly the simplest place to start though. I'd check to make sure you are getting power to the bulb socket with a test light.

Good luck !
