Light switch

Our 2018 B 25rq outside light wasn't working properly, this is the oval 12V LED
light, located just above and to the rear of the entrance door.

After some testing with the multimeter I found that the switch was bad. For now the switch has been bypassed so the inside switch works but of course the outside switch doesn't. I really don't want to buy a new light just for the switch but have failed to find a replacement light switch. Does anyone have a source for this or do I need to start looking for a different type of switch.

We seldom away from our camper after dark but I would like to keep the convenience of the two way switch.

Check with LHC . They sell a kit to change the outside light over to 3 way switching . You may be able to buy a switch from them .

I have had to replace two of these switches already, the one near power inlet and the one in front. Both of these were SPST 060-670 miniature rocker switches. Perhaps you could locate a 3-way version of those.

Switch

Thanks Bruce, since you mentioned that part number and having to replace a few of them already I looked around some. Found a pack of 5 with pigtails on them already under $8.00. Supposedly marine grade so maybe they will last longer and no soldering.
