12 Volt Rocker Type Light Switches

Does anyone have a source for the 12 Volt Rocker Type light switches that are used in the Forest River motorhomes (I don't know what is used in their trailers). I want to add some switches on various lights in the coach that I feel the factory should have installed. Also, does anyone know if there is a 12 Volt Dimmer Switch available, the light over the couch in a 378TS could sure use one.

Let me know, thanks.

I don't know about the dimmer switches, but I installed a common home depot 110v house style silent rocker switch in my bathroom, with no problems at all. I didn't like trying to find the tiny factory switch in the middle of the night. Now, no problem!! Randy

Got mine on ebay. I bought 10 of them for $13.85 with free shipping. They are all red but it doesn't matter the color the tops are interchangeable.

All the switch does is connect or break the wire to complete the circuit. A home style 110 v switch works just fine for that, even though it is a 12 volt system. Plenty large enough, too. Randy
