Battery Dual/Momentary Dash Switch

I don't know if I am posting this in the right place, if not I apologize. Does anyone have or know of a source where I can find one of those Battery Dual/Mom. Switches like is on the 1982 Itasca motorhomes. Mine is bad and I have looked online some with no luck yet but I will keep looking myself. Just thought someone here might help me locate one faster. Thanks !!

Are you after the dash switch , or the relay ?
If it's the dash switch , posting a picture may speed things along.

There are two small wires to the switch, right? The switch operates a solenoid an only a small amount of current goes through the switch.
It is a single pole, single throw, momentary switch.
If you search for a SPST momentary rocker switch you should be able to find one that fits.
You really need to make sure it is the switch that is giving you the problem. The solenoids don't last forever and the contacts can get burnt and not make good contact. It is probably the same solenoid that is energized when the engine is running to charge the house batteries.

Its definitely the rocker switch on the dash guys, the solenoid is new. I checked at the local auto parts stores with no luck. I am posting pics. It has 3 smaller (probably 14 gauge wires) going to it. it says 10 amp-12 vdc on it. I was sure i would be able to find a 3 position switch at the auto parts store but couldnt. I will keep looking but here is pics of what im looking for. Thanks

Search Google for "3 position rocker switch". You'll get all kinds of places that carry them. Measure your switch as you will need that for proper fit. Good luck!
