Thanks for the help.
Bad switch... they are not made very well and I wouldn't be surprised if the ones Dutchmen uses are bottom of the barrel quality. FWIW I use the ones from JR Products
, seem to be better made that a lot of them, also anything from Blue Sea
is a good bet too.
The ones from Blue Sea are console mount the ones from JR can be used in place of most RV switches, they also make a wide variety of cover and mounting plates. JR is what I put in my camper. I usually order mine off Amazon, I have yet to find a dealer with a decent stock of them on hand.
