08 mirror conversion done, but few questions...

everything works fine on my mirror conversion, but have a question about the heated part. I just got back from town and the mirror was pretty warm... could it be from the side lights? i want to make sure the heated part is not on all the time.. i matched the correct wires up (i think) but just want to make sure.. any ideas?

The heated mirror is on whenever the ignition is on. Your original mirrors that came on the truck were the same way. If you want them not to be on all the time you're gonna have to add a switch. It stinks that they are always on cause when dirty water flicks up on mine it dries making it ipossible to see out of them.
