That is a great looking install!

@ Oneilkeys ...The two orange wires that run into the mirror heat switch are the power and ground.

I think you're wrong here. That Dash Harness you posted is dated '13. I called Thor CS and got the current Dash Harness. It indicates the the the Orange wire (one has a Black stripe) are the left and right heater wires. It seems that the White wire is the ground from else where on the sheet. Also those would be the switch legs (after the switch), I think you want to tap the Blue/Red wire instead. <2cents worth

Thanks for the post. It made me rethink the problem. The two orange wires go into and out of the lighted switch for the mirror heat. Thinking about it, of course, one is hot all the time (as long as the ACC switch is on) and the other is only hot when the switch and the light are on. That switch, as any light switch, is just an interrupt in a hot wire. So I need to take the feed for my Port from the in orange wire that is always hot and find a ground wire under the dash or test that white wire and make sure it is really the ground. Thanks again. Senior moment.

@ Oneilkeys, I don't have my Axis here but from the Dash Harness diagram, I believe the Blue/White wire is the hot (ACC keyed) and the White is ground. The fuse for this is in the driver (left) front compartment, # F 15, 10A.

Thanks for the diagram. The blue/White wire cannot be the mirror wire F15 because the two wires feeding into the mirror heat switch are the orange and orange/black. One of those has to feed into F15. The blue/white is probably the hot wire for the mirror adjustment. It’s one of the four wires that feeds into that switch next to the mirror heat. I will test the white wire feeding into the mirror adjust switch and see if it is a ground. I am still waiting for the USB port to arrive. Two day Amazon Prime is now in day 4 - but it is Xmas.

Could you please post the dash harness diagram. I would like it for my files. Thanks.

Here's the Dash Harness Diagram, I hope. The mirror heater switch is in the lower left corner.

To finish up this thread, I received a dual 5v 4.2 amp (total) USB port from Amazon today and hooked it up. I spliced into the orange wire which goes to mirror heater switch as the positive wire and led it under the cup holder and down behind the dash next to the windshield wiper/washer switch. I then drilled a 1 1/8 hole beneath the windshield wiper/washer switch and hooked up the positive lead. For the negative wire, I spliced into a ground wire that I had installed for my solar panel that I know leads directly to the negative battery post on the chassis battery. While the orange and black wire in the post next to the orange wire in the mirror heater switch will work as a ground, if you use it, you are effectively bypassing the mirror heater switch which will leave the mirror heater for one of the mirrors on continuously - not a good idea. Now I have a USB port hooked to the ACC switch where I can easily power my TMPS and dashboard camera.
