#3051S Hot Water Tank - Remote Switch Kit?

I would like to add a remote switch for my Suburban Hot Water Heater on the Convenience Center panel. There are two spare switch blanks available. A lighted 120volt switch with wiring and connectors would be required. Since, this is an option does anyone know if Forest River makes a kit with the necessary parts? Access behind the wall panel and to the Hot Water Heater is easy. The 120volt connection box appears to be on the top of the water heater towards the front.

Ok, now I am searching for other postings on this subject.

Was able to get a 120volt switch installed with a light. I just disconnected the wire running to the electric panel from the Hot Water Heater and ran it into the switch. Then ran a second new wire from the electric panel to the switch. It is wired so the red light is ON when the switch is on. The switch is located just above the main electrical panel on my #3051S.

Lowe's did not have a brown lighted switch or plate.
