Best solution I can think of is to add a high amp reversing relay. That way you can use standard 16 gage wire and a simple toggle switch to operate your landing gear.

You might try asking this question on the Everest Owners Club Forum and see if they have any solutions...

Sorry I don't have another solution to your question.

Most of the landing gear switches are nothing more than a HD DPDT (30 amp, double pole double throw) switch available at Radio Shack, Home Depot etc.

I would just fabricate a mounting bracket to be mounted in the drivers side storage compartment closest to the front. Then wire it in parallel to the factory mounted one. That way you will be able to operate the landing gear from either side.
