Equalizer jacks switch replacement

Has anyone come up with a less expensive replacement for the jack switches when they break? I have one that won't usually show that the jack is down;. I have to reach under and pull it down. Equalizer wants $65 each for the switches and They are just momentary push switches. Mine started out with plastic covers but the covers have all disintegrated.
I will be home tomorrow and then I will pull the broken one part and see what I can do... But I thought maybe someone else has already been down this road.

There are a couple models of Equalizer controllers. It would help if you identified which one you have.

Odd that yours have disintegrated. Mine (2004 vintage Autolevel) still look/act like new and the coach has always been used extensively.

Thanks Gary.
My jacks are cylinders/pistons, straight up and down. I did not look up the model number because the Equalizer page says that their replacement switches fit all existing jacks. The switches all still work except one sticks, but the rubber covers all have rotted away.

My goal was to use the auto level feature that the bad switches prevented from functioning properly. I contacted Equalizer to determine what switches I needed. I had two that were not working. I decided to replace all four. All of the generic switches I was able to find cost more than the 'correct' ones so I bought the set of four from Equalizer. The sad part is that after I replaced all the switches I found that I liked to manually level the RV better than allowing the Equalizer system to it for me. The end result is that the replacement switches are only used to make the lights function correctly. For me it was a waste of money to change the switches.

Thanks Bob!
I use the auto mode but when that switch doesn't pop out, auto just stops and and nothing happens. I am going to call Fleetwood too to see if they have a better price (ha)
