the water heater disintegrating and malfunctioning? Are there replacement rocker switches available? Are they easy to DIY?
Yes, and, at least in my case, NO! I picked up the replacement at an RV parts department for a couple of bucks.
The connector to one of the switch terminals overheated to the point where it melted the back of the switch. That meant replacing the connector, as well as the switch. Very short wires & a difficult location to work at. After doing the replacement, I added a switch inside the trailer wired in series with the circuit breaker and left the water heater's built in switch on all the time.
