If you go to the FAQ for this site it tells how to insert images. It also states that the file must meet size standards or it will be rejected.

I think I've got it this time.Not as easy as copy and paste. if it didn't come through i give up it's not that important. It's the switch panel on the right side front dash at the entry door. Four switches, porchlight,ceiling light,entry step, and battery cut-off. The bezel has cracked at the screw holes and some pieces have broken off.

Tim, looks good this time. Those are made for Monaco by several companies, however none will sell direct that I know of. Some did sell direct over the last couple of years but I think Monaco is putting pressure on it's suppliers again NOT to sell to any owners direct. That being said, the part you are looking for is just a plastic type product and is machineable.

I can see yours are cracked at the screw holes. One way to fix the ones you have is to glue a piece of clear plexiglass on the back. Use All-purpous glue found in Lowe's or Home Depot plumbing departments. Make sure it is the type glue made for all the plastic pipe those companies are selling. Once the glue drys, use a Dremal tool to cut off the excess and then drill new holes for the screws. Make sure the screw holes are larger than the shank of the screw itself. Also see if you can find some washer head screws as they have a larger footprint for pressure on the backplate. You can get them at Fastenal in black and in different lengths.

Au-Ve-Co Products, or Auto-Vehicle Products.
Part # 0162744 is a black washer head screw #8 x 3/4"
Part # 0162745 is a black washer head screw #8 x 1"
Part # 0162756 is a black washer head screw #10 x 3/4"
Part # 0162757 is a black washer head screw #10 x 1"

I also use these on my dash and side panel.

Only place to get the plates you need is Monaco or if you are very lucky, Northwest supply who buys lots of Monaco surplus.

Rex,
Thank You, I tried Northwest but nothing. We have a Navistar dealer here in town I'll give them a try first. The last time I tried to use them I asked if they could get Monaco parts they told me that they had seen an inter-company email on something about Monaco. So if they fail I'll try your fix, it sounds much stronger than the original.

Tim, just call Monaco parts direct at 877-466-6226 and put your order in. Should be no problem. Describe to them where the unit is installed and hopefully they will provide it without the switches. Hey, if not you could make one from Plexiglas. Just paint the backside of it before installation. It will not exactly match the other similar components, but at least you can do it yourself. Sometimes Home Depot will have a scrap piece of plastic they will sell very cheap.
