Default 2013 hard wire at rear Mirror?

On my 2010 1500 I was able to easily hard wire my escort at the rear view mirror. My 2013 Laramie is much different. I don't see a pink/green tracer wire there and cant get my tester to light on any of those pins. Is there an ignition switched power wire and ground at the mirror?
If so what are the wire colors?

Thanks in advance for the help!

I tried to do this as well. I found the right wires.. But couldnt figure out how to do it cleanly with the covers they use on the rear view. I ended up knocking the mirror off the window and had to take it in to Dodge the next day to have it re-installed.. Im gonna suggest running the cord to the fuse box and hiding the cord up in the headliner.. Good Luck.

I ran it to the fuse box, up the fire wall zip tied to other stuff, through the weather stripping and onto the lower left side of the dash for a low profile look. Was kinda worried about it picking up the 360 degrees but it's working like a charm and I am picking up the radar from normal distances with plenty of time to slow down if needed (my foot only gets a little heavy on the freeway, town and rural posted speed limits are where they should be around here). I've got it hooked in to the 10 amp fuse for the ignition so it is on/off with the vehicle.

I had mine wired into the center interior cab lights. Comes on when the truck is turned on.
