I do not think any of the options will extend to the tow position under power. In the few days I have power folding mirrors I found them to be a guarantee to break them. My current "temporary" tow mirrors fold in by pushing them back towards the rear of the truck. They will also fold in if struck... I know this first hand. I did not force them beyond my comfort level but the power folding mirrors needed to be folded in by the motor and had no give. This would have meant a new mirror when that duelly Dodge clipped me one day.

I just hope it saves someone the head ache if they buy like I did with an assumption... And maybe a solution when they do.

So stupid, anything to save a few dollars at the expense of the customer. I own HD2500, great power train, but some things I have found are really cheaply manufactured, should not be on a $50k truck

Yes I am sure I will discover that as time goes on. No one ever could tell me why they did this with JUST the Diesels. Best I could come up with was less engine heat to mess with the reading??

Local GM dealer did add tow, slide out signal light in large mirror to my truck as it also came with the small mirrors, mine is 2009, not had any problems with the mirrors themselves.

When I bought my 2009 2500HD, dealer told me they couldn't even get/install towing mirrors (wth). They were going to get them (and have them installed there) by the same place I was buying my Leer topper from. (Granted, this was in Alaska, but still, it's a TRUCK, an HD with a towing and snowplow package!!!)

I see Chevy trucks on the road every day with tow mirrors....we use Robot Check. They worked great for our Wildwood, not yet sure if I will need something different with the new TT, as it's much longer.
