    You will need to check fuse no's 4 (7.5A), 5 (10A), and 12 (15A) which are all related to the electric mirrors.

    Checked all the fuses, all appear to be ok

    Noticed that 12 (15A) does the reverse lights as well so checked to see if they were working, they aren't.

    Replaced the fuse but still the same, no wing mirrors or reverse lights

    That fuse also powers your heated jets. I'm thinking that there is no supply to that fuse. Are you handy with a test meter?

    You will need to probe both sides of the fuse with respect to ground.

    Do you have power(voltage) at the fuses? use a test light to check
