If you have the electric sliding rear window, you can't have the defroster. The defroster comes only on the solid rear window. So electric slider and defroster are mutually exclusive. On trucks with the electric rear window, pressing the right hand knob turns on the heated exterior rear mirrors.

This is from the owner's manual that I found online-page # 179. It does not specify if it is for a solid rear window or a power window.

http://www.autodealertools.com/quick...Ram%203500.pdf

REAR WINDOW FEATURES
Rear Window Defroster
The rear window defroster button is located on the
climate control panel. Press this button to turn on
the rear window defroster and the heated outside mirrors
(if equipped). An indicator in the button will illuminate
when the rear window defroster is on. The rear window
defroster automatically turns off after approximately
10 minutes. For an additional five minutes of operation,
press the button a second time.
NOTE:
To prevent excessive battery drain, use the rear
window defroster only when the engine is operating.

CAUTION!
Failure to follow these cautions can cause damage to
the heating elements:
Use care when washing the inside of the rear
window. Do not use abrasive window cleaners on
the interior surface of the window. Use a soft cloth
and a mild washing solution, wiping parallel to
the heating elements. Labels can be peeled off
after soaking with warm water.

Do not use scrapers, sharp instruments, or abrasive
window cleaners on the interior surface of the
window.

Keep all objects a safe distance from the window.

Turning the right knob all the way is mirrors AND windshield defrost. If you can push that knob and the orange light turns on then you HAVE rear defrost
On mine (power rear slider) when you press the vent control knob button this turns on the heated mirrors.
