Dash Mounted Gen Start/Stop Switch

Have a dash mounted generator start/stop switch in our Superstar and noticed that the light in the switch doesn't light up anymore.. its still functioning to start/stop, but in the past when the generator was running, this switch was illuminated... anyone know if there is an inline fuse to look for or is this just a bad switch possibly..

thanks!

I added a few switches to my coach with little LEDs that told be when they were powered on. On two occasions the LED died within a few months. Strange failure rate on a simple little item.

thats what im thinking.. im wondering if when the generator is starting if the voltage is possibly spiking and causing that LED to wear out sooner than later...
