The sw is a DPDT any DPDT will work. But finding one that fits the hole and matches the other switches will be the challenge. You might try the salvage yards. Are there any numbers or writing on it?


Good Luck!

I think it would be a momentary contact DPDT rocker switch. You might take a look at this one.

Marinco sells a DPDT switch with similar countours/size as my switches. Sometimes the top of the switch (rocker portion) can be removed - it is a plug/snap in

Link here

Here it is on Amazon, order two and get free shipping .

Hope this helps,
Brian

entry door retractable floor switch

Mel, I agree with TinyTom, reset your Vansco before you try anything else. If you need a momentary DPDT switch try Camping World they usually have a good assortment on the shelf, I got DPDT's from them to replace my windshield shade switches then discovered while attempting the swap out it was a bad splice in the harness! WRV was not known for great wiring, however they did keep several wire suppliers in business.

I had the same problem, I found 2 extra screws in the track, once removed it was fine.
