Default power folding tow mirrors

I have the factory Laramie mirrors. I am waiting for the power chrome folding tow mirrors to come in as part of my original purchase (I had them add it into the price). Is anyone aware of an option where the tow mirrors power fold as opposed to manual fold? I love the look of what came on the truck but have to tow a 31' camper so kind of need tow mirrors. However, the tow mirrors will stick out a couple inches more on both sides making it hard to get into tight spaces. If the mirrors were power fold as opposed to manual fold this would be the best of both worlds. Thanks in advance for any info anyone has on this topic. Moved up from an 04 Tundra and I really love this Ram so far.

You say you are waiting for the power chrome folding tow mirrors to come in. So, you mean the power tow mirrors with manual fold?

I've heard there is a power folding mirror but can't confirm it nor do I know if it's a power folding tow mirror.

I researched this pretty well when I ordered my RAM 2500 with the Laramie package. I also wanted the power folding mirrors but, there was no option to add them. Mine are heated, power adjustable, chrome, tow mirrors with puddle lights and turn signals. They are great but they do stick out there when folded upright for towing. I never have seen an option for power folding but, somone said later it was only an option on the 3500 series. I have not seen proof its even offered on those yet.

My understanding was that there is a power folding option (but didnt see it called out when I built my truck).

This folds the mirror arms in not flip the mirror up for "towing". I cant remember where I ran across it, but I recall that between the left & right mirror selector buttons there would be a button. You would press this once to fold the mirrors in...press again to open them back up.

I wish I was at home to look at my truck. I don't know if I had that button on my truck.

I did some looking around at my 2500 brochure. There are options for the Laramie crew/mega cab. The 1st one in bold is standard. The 2nd one is options. With that being said yet the power folding is now an option. An a minimum you would need a new switch pack & mirrors...its possible the wires are already in the harness. Also a reprogram of the computer might be required.

I sat at the computer while my dealer entered my order and there was no option (GP2) to choose/select, even though we saw it in the 2500 brochure also. Someone else at the dealership said it was a 3500 series only option, which does not make sense but, I would not bank on the wires being there.

Thanks everyone for the info. I will just have to fold them in manually or get a house with a bigger garage.

Our 2008 F250 has them, just flip a switch and they fold in to pull into garage or just fold so people can walk past easier when [arked in a parking lot. It seems that Dodge would have caught up after 3 years, handy feature to have that is used daily I might add.
