Battery cut off switch/salesman switch

Hi all, This is Michbill.
We bought a 2009 Monaco Dynasty Regal IV in July. Love it! However, the battery cut off switch, located in the door frame by the passenger seat, stopped working. This is a "gang" of three switches the cut off, stairs and ( I'm having a senior moment) can't remember. I have checked the run box in the engine compartment, and the selenoid is working. It appears that the switch inside the house is bad. My question, has anyone had to buy one of these modules? If so where did you get it and about what was the cost.
Thank you

Suggest you take the switch out and look for any numbers that my be stamped on it, then Google the numbers, you may get lucky. If you can find identification on switch you could look at Ebay, there is usually a number of these type of switches listed.

Most of the rocker switches that are used are made by Carling but I think the salesman switch is a simple 12 volt on off switch.

I have replaced different switches on my Windsor, most of the time I will take it off and go to an RV service center, they usually stock the most common ones. Cost can vary but ~$5-7 depending on switch.

The switch (at the entry door) is lovingly called the "Salesman Switch". The switch instructs the "latching relay" (a latching solenoid) to allow DC to the coach or not.

This solenoid is notorious for which point you lose DC throughout the coach. Many of us have chosen to defeat this P.O.S. solenoid. Photos & discussion at:

My salesman switch is a momentary switch. I like many people have bypassed the relay in the front bay. I connected the red wires I the same side of the solenoid so power is always on. One less issue to deal with while traveling.

I agree with all that say defeat the switch. It really serves you no purpose.
