circuit board

Hey There,
My level indicator lights finally went out completely. After researching, it appears the small printed circuit board behind the panel is bad. Problem is I can not seem to find an online store that would carry it. I do not see a catalog for parts for Forest River? Its in a 2010 Georgetown 378, the panel in hall that tells you the water, battery, black, grey, levels. Any recommendations would be appreciated. I am not even sure what to call it in description or part.

Thanks Barney

Seems strange that all of the led's would die. I had one led on mine die and I replaced it. I subsequently went on ebay and found a salvaged panel with the circuit card intact and it works. I would be willing to sell the card plus exchange for yours. I think the 2012 378 (mine) and 2010 378 had the identical panel. My minimal research did not turn up the panel circuit card to replace it so I just repaired it.

Hey Bubbles,
It is strange, and what's worse is at first when pushing any button the level lights came on and instantly faded away, on every button. I read up and it was suggested to check ground on printed circuit card. Well I took it out cannot see any sign of burnt or separation of solder. After reinstalling, no lights. Its a basic circuit board with the little built in buttons, I just can not find it or even give it a name for e-bay. This a picture of one similar to what I need. Not my pic but from the forum. Thanks for the reply

On ebay I ran a search for rv parts not working/salvaged and I found a complete panel that was cut out of an rv (also had a couple switches missing). It was an identical item to what is in my MH. It was less than $25 and the one thing it did have was the LED circuit card intact. The card I have is not like the one you posted so if yours is the same then mine will not fit your panel. Incidentally, I believe the panel manufacturer uses that card in a number of different rv companies they make panels for. The switch (slides/water heater etc.) number and layout may be different but the card led and push buttons are the same. As an example of the card layout I have but layout of complete panel is different:
