Thor Freedom Elite 29FE Outside mirrors - Convert to electric

Hello, we are about to take delivery of a Thor Freedom Elite 29FE from Camping World. From what I understand this is a similar unit to the Thor Four Winds 29G that is made especially for Camping World. I've already started to make a list of modifications and the top of that list is to replace the outside mirrors with electric remote ones. Has anyone done this and is the wiring built into the chassis to do this? I know the Four Winds has a electric mirror switch on the passenger door up by the window. It doesn't look hard to change out the mirrors IF the wiring is already there going to the right hand mirror.

Any ideas or suggestions?

I had power mirrors high up on my "want" list (not must have)

I considered going to Velvac (mine are made by them) or perhaps to an RV salvage yard

I never checked to see if the wiring from Ford was there or not though.

BUT
in the end, I decided against it. Honestly, once I got the mirrors adjusted I haven't touched them in over two years. They are big/wide enough that different drivers really shouldn't need to adjust them unless MAYBE if they are hugely different in height
so in my thinking the only benefit would be the heated function to melt away dew or frost.

Thank you for your reply.

Do you have a Freedom Elite 29FE as well?
What modifications if any have you made or plan on making to yours?
How do you like it?
