Default New Mirrors keep blowing fuse

I bought a set of Mopar trailer mirros off ebay and went to install them tonight. Thought it was going to be a nice easy swap.....

They bolted up fine, but when I tried the power mirror function I blew the fuse. I took it off, replaced the fuse, tried it again off the truck and it was fine. So I putit back on, tried again and blew the fuse.

I put some plastic washers on either side of the 3 bolts that go thru the door and still blew a fuse. Works great when I dont mount them though.

It is late and I am out of fuses so I put the stock one back on and didnt try the other side. Am I missing something or did I get a bad mirror?

I returned the mirrors and bought another set and had no issues, so my guess is something inside the mirror was grounding out.
