[QUOTE=rdickens;668659]I am curious what other owners have used to prevent inadvertent operation of
the rocker switches for the 12 volt fresh water pump and/or the switches for the hot water heater.
In a Scamp
, these are usually mounted on the side of the sink/stove cabinet
and, depending on which direction/way you sleep, could inadvertently be bumped and turned on/off by hands or feet while sleeping (or awake?).
If the fresh water tank only contains air, it seem like the 12 volt pump could
try to run continuously while trying to build up enough pressure (normally water pressure) to shut off.
The attached picture will show what my switches look like.
Thanks bunches for any help and ideas!
We used fan switch covers that screw into the switch plates of a house. They are under $3 each and are so easy to install. We put one over our pump switch that sits in front of the sink and one over the hot water tank switch that sits under a chair and at foot level. Would be easy to break the switch. They are like a half circle that covers the switch. You have to on purpose go under the half circle with your finger to turn it on. Any hardware store, Home Depot or any other place like that carries them. I think we had to drill holes for the screws since our switches are pop riveted in. Easy, quick, cheap and has lasted us 11 years. I'm a woman and I did it myself. Looks very nice since they are white. Just ask for fan switch covers in the electrical
