1996 Kountry Star - source for oval dash switches

It would appear that the dash switches on the 96 KS are pretty unique to that year - they are rectangular bases but the rocker is an oval shape.

I have looked through the catalogs of automotive suppliers but have been unable to find who made them. Any idea where I can source a few of them to update my dash and to replace the ugly alternatives that a PO installed

Hi steveclv,
Your best chance to solve this is to call Newmar. The number is 800-731-8300. Ask for parts.

Thanks for the links - very useful

I couldn't match them unfortunately so I'll try and give Newmar a call - I just know that their price is going to be $$$$ compared to $ from the original supplier

These are the ones I am after - you can see the PO mods :(

Steve

Newmar has the switchs. 3 years ago I bought 2 switchs. One was a on-off which was about $15. The other was a on-off-on which was about $25. No idea what they are charging today. If you want one with the indicator light built into it they should have them also. Some of the switchs in my DS has the indicator light built in.
