Need rubber on/off button for Dometic

Help! The on/ off rubber button popped off my Dometic Refrigerator in my 2011 Freedom Deluxe 17'. I went by three Dometic RV dealers this morning and the only thing they would do was order the entire panel for $141.00 plus tax. My panel works just fine. The only thing missing is this little rubber button. Sad to say but I saw the button laying in front of the refrigerator about two weeks ago. I just thought it was trash so I tossed it in the garbage. What a mistake! Any ideas on where I can get one of these. I tried calling Dometic directly but they referred me to a dealer.

Is it just a rubber cover for a switch?? Did it screw on? Cole Hersee has rubber covers that screw on to a toggle switch.

I would call Dometic and explain the situation . I needed a small part and they mailed it to me at no charge a few years ago.

Good idea
I know there's one in the shop right now! Larry is trying to improve the cooling of the frig and the one he's using is one they thought was dead and was pulled from a Casita... the frig is just fine. Whether he'll give up a part is his call.

Donna D. Please let me know what Larry says. I did order the Button cover today from Little House but I still need the replacement button. The on/off switch works fine. Thanks for all the responses.

No Jim, you contact Larry for your needs. You wouldn't like my middleman prices

I contacted Dometic directly and this was their response. Not exactly what I was hoping for:
I am sorry but this button does come as part of the display panel. I tried to break it down and just get the button but it will not allow me to do that . The cost if you order it from us would be $111.57 plus a flat shipping charge of $25.00. If you would like to order it through here You can call our customer service line at 1-800-544-4881 option 2 then option 2 again. Mon - Fri 8:30 -5:00 EST
We appreciate this opportunity to address your situation and hope all of your future travels are trouble free. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time to order parts or for further assistance.

Sincerely,
Thank You
