Default Dash Rocker Switches

Does anyone know where to get those rocker switches on the dash for a 95 BMC? (May be the same ones on Wanderlodge, I don't know). My Aquahot switch has quit (can't even turn it on or off) so I have installed a temporary jumper switch to start it down on the unit but would like to have the one inside working again.

They are probably some standard switch but I have looked a couple of places and haven't found one that size or amperage (assuming 16 Amps...see below) that will fit the hole properly.

This particular switch is inscribed

160011E B
16A 250V a.c. (on the other side it says 16(4) 250V)
ARROW ENGLAND

Thanks

Any luck Lee?

Aren't the rocker switches and the dash very similar between the 95+ BMC dashes and the Wanderlodges?

Hopefully some one will speak up here with some experience on these switches for you.

I bought some from osloswitch.com. They are almost identical, but no longer available in glossy, only matte. Nobody notices anyway. They will require you to go through a distributor unless you tell them you are replacing failed switches, in which case they will sell direct at about $10 a pop. If anyone finds the original glossy switch source, I'd sure like to know.

I looked up arrow components on Rob's post. Looks like the real thing. Delete oslo switch.

I haven't found any pictures on the Arrow site- something I'm doing wrong. Where are they?

I have the same issue-thousands of switches. How can we tell which ones are the right ones?

Default switches

When I have trouble with switches on my 96 Wanderlodge, I pry out the rocker with a small knive scrap the contacts and reassemble. Takes 5 minutes.

Keep in mind that many switches are common with the Blue Bird school busses. Look for a Blue Bird distributor in your area (such as A to Z bus in California) and call their parts guy -- some have catalogs online that you can download as a PDF.

I have had good luck with Allied Electronics. I remove the switch in question, enter the part # on their website and find a replacement.
