Where can I get replacement Rocker Switches?

I need to replace a Carling rocker switch for my Driving Lights on my Travel Supreme. It is a 12 Volt 20 Amp SP illuminated switch that everyone has in their motorhomes and trucks. So far I have not been able to find someone who can figure out the part number so I can find someone who might be able to actually get it. (4 wires total, maintained contact)

You can find it here, or there should be a part number on the body of the switch. Then google the number.

I added a switch to the dash of my journey for some extra lighting for hooking up my towed. I used my Amazon app by scanning a picture of another switch. It took a few try's before it found what I was looking for.

I have switches in my Jeep that are exactly like those I got from Auto zone. They come with a ton of stickers for labeling.

Amazon has quite a few. Labels for everything from a winch to fans to zombie lights(?!?) They cost between $5 and $15 each.
Wish I had thought to look at an auto parts place before I ordered them from Amazon, oh well, got what I wanted.

This may help:

Do you have the original switch? If so, you can transfer the actuator over to a new switch.

That's a Carling Contura II actuator.

Like this one, but in green?

OTRATTW :: Rocker Only :: Contura II & III :: Lighting :: CONTURA II, DRIVING LIGHTS, BLUE LENS, ROCKER ONLY

One source for Carling parts:

https://www.waytekwire.com/products/...20&pageSize=36

The Carling part number is long and specifies many details. Two links:

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

I found the switches

It took a week to actually get the correct part number from one of Carling's distributors. Unfortunately they had a minimum order quantity of 10. I kept searching and found http://www.mouser.com/ They have electrical components of all kinds and will sell the switches individually. I now have two of them one the way. The rocker covers are sold separately from the switch by the way.
