Hose Reel Switch?

Does anyone have a source for the hose reel retract switch?

Mine goes out, but no longer goes in.
It is your basic standard carling DPDT switch, can find those easy, but Entegra sourced it from someone who soldered a little circuit board and some wires to it, and in typical Entegra fashion used yellow crimp connectors to attach it.

In an ideal world, the proper connector to attach to the switch would let me wire it up right, without any crimp connectors.

thanks,

jim

FYI:

Mouser Electronics
VLD2S00B-AZC00-000 Carling contura II switch $6.30 each
VC1-01 Carling 10 terminal connector body 80 cents
2238173-3 AMP Terminals FAST .250 STD REC STR 2D AWG22-12 TPBR 12 cents

I ordered 3 each and 40 terminals, this is a very common switch, it is the one used for the engine cover and other places. Total shipped to florida $34 and changed, I should have them in a couple days.

When done, it will be as it should have been in the first place. Professionally crimped terminals and a single plug connector that connects to the switch. No yellow butt connectors!

(note: I remain really really bothered by the wiring on this coach! Every wired connection should be professionally terminated, ideally with automotive weatherproof connectors. There should not be a single electrical item in this very expensive machine that is commonly sold at hardware stores. Entegra, are you listening?)

To cross the power and get forward and reverse.
I'll do that the regular way, with wires.

Project complete.

Pics include:
Factory switch and wiring, including 2 different size wires connected with hardware store yellow butt splices.
Wires installed in new plug connecter.
new switch plugged in
everything back together
New switch, connector housing, and connector pins.

Next time the switch fails, it will be a 2 minute swap, with a ready spare in my parts box.

Nice neat job. Looks like it was easier to do it correctly than cobbled up with butt splicers.
