Damon Outlaw Dashboard switches

Has anyone found replacements for the dashboard switches on the Outlaw? I have one blank and I would like to add a switch for a new horn that we added and would love to find a matching switch.

More information would help us help you. What year, model of Damon Outlaw do you have? Perhaps a photo of the switches? Carling Technologies makes many styles of rocker switches. You could remove a switch and look for manufacturer. If it is a Carling switch, many places sell their switches. Ebay, Grainger, are a few that come to mind.

It is a 2007 Damon Outlaw. I'll post up a photo the next time I am at the RV.

Thanks for the information. Carling Technologies seems to have pointed me in the right direction as the their Contura line of switches appears it will have a match.

So these are what my switches look like. It looks like Carling makes a million combinations of these things, so I'll probably need to pull one out and get the exact part number if I want an exact match.

Jeremy,

These switches are rather standard in the RV and Boat market. No need to pay for Carling if you can find it through a reseller, like:
https://www.amazon.com/Support-Butto...&keywords=horn

The "left" or "right" aspect to the switch face is harder to find. So, adding a switch might make you want to slide the "service light" switch over 1 spot.

There's some fun ones and even custom text here:
Dirty Parts

Best luck...
And hope you post about it here:

If you select a Carling momentary contact switch and use a red 'horn' cover, it really doesn't have to exactly match the other switches.

I found these guys which have a crazy selection. They are true Carling but the price doesn't seem crazy and you can get custom text engraved.

I ended up ordering a switch from the link I listed above, SPST and worked beautifully. They even customized the words on the switch for no extra charge so I got exactly what I wanted. I installed a siren/pa system that can play various sound effects (great for tailgaiting) and the dash switch acts as a master switch to keep it from being accidentally activated while we are on the road.
