2000 Dutch Star Mirror issue

I was returning home when a big rig opposite direction drifted onto my lane crossing a narrow bridge. Pulled to my right and passenger mirror torn off. Fortunately truck returned to his lane and no other damage to my coach.
I ordered another mirror from Ramco. Unfortunately only wires I can readily find on coach just operate the turn signal on mirror. I have been digging into foam under cap looking for the coach side wiring harness for this mirror. Have any of you folks any idea where these wires are located? I would really appreciate any information.

Seems to me that I've seen a multiple connector for the mirror under the right side of my dash . I'll try and post a picture .
If the wiring was yanked out , it could have gone back that far.

Ok ; just goes to show I should never trust anything to memory .

No multiple connector on the R mirror wiring , but the Ramco wiring does pass through the firewall where its connected to the Newmar wiring that crosses behind the dash, with bullet connectors.
First picture ( yellow arrows are the lower mirror mount screws) wiring disappears into spray foam insulation.
Second picture , grey tube ( yellow arrow ) is the Ramco wiring coming through into the interior , I was laying on my back on the step cover and couldn't get a better angle, other wires ( red arrow ) are Newmar from the control switch ( s).
Dash vent duct above .
Third picture connectors ; I didn't realize till I loaded this to my computer how close I got . If you need wire color info , let me know and I'll take another that details the hook up.

Thank you Skip! All I have to attach now is the wires for mirror heat. It looks as if there is a striped black wire and only other is a white wire which had an orange wire spliced in. I am guessing this may have been ground. I will check them with my tester this afternoon.
Your information has really helped.
