It is in a track so it can't move around. After having all three types of visors, this is the best and easiest to use. But getting back to reason for this post does anyone know the part# for the switch to make the shade go up and down?

The switch may be a proprietary FR switch with symbol on the rocker and you may have to contact FR to get one from a FR dealer. There are numerous type switches available out there but they may not have the printed symbol on the rocker.

The switch is made by Carling Technologies and the part number is VLD1 but as said I believe it is proprietary to Forest River. You are correct, it is not just a simple DPDT momentary rocker switch. The switch connector is a Carling Technologies Packard 630 or 58. You can google Carling Technologies and punch in VLD1 in their site search engine and the switch type can be seen. There are data sheets associated with the switch that shows the internal workings and maybe you can use them to re-assemble your switch. There is a part number tag on my switch harness with Forest River part number FR-112635 and don't know if that is just for the wiring or also includes the switch. Best bet for exact replacement is through a Forest River parts dealer. Good luck.

I was just working with the dealer here in Ohio to order another of these switches as I did the same thing on my 2012 GT350. Below is what they emailed to me:


Hope this helps.
