Warm/Hot switches below drivers side window

Today, while driving between Durango RV Resort (Red Bluff CA) and Seven Feathers RV Resort (Canyonville OR), I realized while using the AUX BREAK CONTROL SWITCH how warm/hot the entire bank of control switches are below the drivers side window. Is this normal?

It's normal. They are even hotter when the lights are on.

Thanks "ALL" for the replies. Seems odd but normal.

The heat simply means that the switches are direct rather than driving a relay. That is both good and bad - a relay keeps the high current out of the switch panel. This means less arcing (always happens on a micro level) and greater switch longevity. OTOH, a relay means a higher parts count and more wire junctions, a common point of failure. It also costs more. You pays your money and you takes your chances.
