trouble with toggle switches on overhead light

Notice a couple of the switches on the overhead lights getting tough to toggle, and then tonight one of them wouldnt toggle at all. Barely touch it tand the light would flicker.

Took the fixture down and the back of the switch has what looks like burn marks on it!

Most of these fixtures still have the orginal bulbs that came with the trailer. I have changed some to a lower wattage 912 bulb.

This one pictured has the original 921 bulbs.

Updated: Pulled out the bad switch. It is rated 14v 3A. (which equals 42W).

The 921 bulbs are rated 18w at 12.8V 18W each .

Anyone know where I can find a few replacement switches.

Here is the info on the side of the switch.

If you can find a larger Radio Shack they might have them. Otherwise start calling some electrical supply houses or do a web search

Probably have to buy an assortment pack...LOL

I use to hate radio hack because you couldn't buy 100 "X" connector. everything was an assortment pack. Of course they are convenient when you need them.

Found these on Ebay. Size and Specs look like they will work.

Went by RV parts / dealer today and they had the switches I needed. Turns out JR Products has a case for RV dealers that has a hole assortment of misc switches. A bit prices at $3 bucks each, but I wanted them today.

(it is the white mini SPST rocker switch)


Looked at Fry's too. Their switches were around $10 bucks a piece.
