Shade switch

I tried taking out the power shade switch in the instrument panel area out and you know what happened (MURPHY) It came apart and shot all the little springs everywhere. I cant figure out where those 2 springs came from. Does anyone know the part # for that switch?

I have attached the manual and should list the part numbers or a phone number to call and get a replacement.

You need to find a 12 volt DC switch, 10-15 amp, 6 pin spade connection, double pole double throw (momentary on)

This is the type of switch it is. All you have to do is verify the hole size to my attached example on Ebay

I gotta ask....were you attempting to move it to a more LOGICAL location? Always strikes me as strange they decided to put the front shades switches in the most inconvenient place in the coach when camping! I would have put them on the control panel by the slide out switches.

I think that would be more inconvenient if you wanted to lower the front shade to block the sun while driving.

The shade is also a sun visor and perhaps a remote additional switch might be ok?, up front at the drivers location is, to me, the right place for this switch.

I just don't use shade as a sun visor.

I was trying to pry the switch away from the wiring harness to test if the switch was the problem. As it is a two piece unit it popped apart before i could remove it from the six pins.

Then what do you do when the sun is in your face.. I think this is the best set up for driving into the sun ever

I don't like the shade down and swinging around when traveling. My preference. As for sun in the face, I guess I haven't run into that yet
