Power Winshield Shades

Our '07 TropiCal was not equipped with power windshield visors/shades option. Any brand recommendations? Also any idea where I source the same rocker switches that would have been used by National on the dash?

I am in the middle of installing power visors right now.
I bought mine in the IRV Classifieds last fall. They are out of a Dutch Star. There is no ID on them. They are 40 inches long each.
I installed a pair of Blue Seas rocker switches above the hour meter in the dash. They almost match and look fine to my eye!
The wiring runs up the windshield pillar.
I got a bunch of good advice from Wasatch Steve thru this site on reconfiguring the underside of the forward cabinet to mount the visors and a TV sound bar.
I am taking pictures and will share when I get done. Work is on hold because my wife broke her shoulder Sunday nite and my nursing skills are being tested!
Send me a PM if you want more right now...

If your switches look like the one I posted on the attached thread, then Northwest RV was wonderful to work with, the number/name is in the thread. Good luck

House radio switch.

MikeandRuth I would love to see pictures. We have the same rig and would love to follow in your footsteps. Also have you ever had a problem where your AC won't work while on generator. Worked fine last year, pulled it out this year and I can't get the AC to kick on with the generator. I am going to try shore power tonight to try and isolate the problem. I have checked the generator circuit, the circuit in the coach and in the inverter bay, they all look fine and have been reset. I am stumped.

Also, what is the AUX rocker for on the dashboard. Haven't figure that one out in the year we have owned it. Thanks for your help. michaelcritchfield@hotmail.com
