That's the problem. No dealers in my area handle Forest River warranty work. Still trying to find someone whose old setup is/was the same as mine and what had to be done to install the new box.

Any mobile repair guys in your area that can do the work? I have dealt with a couple on some recall issues, they were reimburse by the dealer for the service call.

Can't seem to find any mobile repair men in this area.

What year is your coach? Did they have to make any modifications when installing the new switch?

They had to bore new holes in the box to accommodate the way the rig is wired. I have a 2011. How about trying an electrician, just have forest river ship you the part?

Nice one Billy now your going to get Tom started again.
Tom did you know Matt is gone? New guy's name is Mitch same phone number. I've been trying to get ahold of Randy but he's been out boat of the last couple weeks. He had surgery on his foot.
If you had a local electrician that would put "RV Tech" on his letterhead would the go for that or is there a approved list they work of from.

Talked with Mitch today, seems like a good guy, very helpful. He doesn't have an email yet but is running off of Matt's for now but any day he'll have his own set up. As Phil said, same number though. He's organizing the work with my local dealer here(northern Ontario, Canada) here so hopefully that will get done soon.

I spoke to Mitch today as well. Nice fellow. Because there is no authorized repair shop within 300 miles of Houston(just a small town), they will allow for two hours of shop labor to replace the switch. I will contact my local shop and have them make the arrangements.
Thanks FRF

Phil,
Yes- I spoke to Matt a couple of weeks ago and he told me that he was leaving FR but to please not post it at that time. I haven't spoken or had any dealings with Mitch as yet. I have a local electrical contractor coming today to see what he thinks. Will keep everyone informed.

Billy,
Just PM'd you. Would it be possible to post a picture of what the new switch looks like after the install?
Thanks,
Tom
