Rocker switch for RAM 3500 tongue jack

Hi all - last week when we got home from our desert trip the rocker switch for the tongue jack broke (one of the little nubs is sheered off). I did some searches for a replacement switch and eTrailer has the switch but dang, it seems a bit pricey (more than 25% of the cost of a new jack!).

I was just wondering if anyone else has replaced the switch with something other than a RAM replacement switch.

That's the same switch as slide, landing gear, and other jack switches. It's a double pole, double throw (dpdt), center off momentary switch.

Here one DPDT Center off Mom Sw

Update - new switch installed

I just wanted to update the thread in case someone else needs to make this repair in the future. I ordered this switch from Amazon. It fit perfectly and seems to be at least as well made as the original switch. The power jack is working fine now and hopefully it will continue working as long as we own the trailer.

Just to be clear, there were several other switches on Amazon that look the same but the measurements in their specs were different. As I said this one was a perfect fit.

Thanks to Bama Rambler for the link that got me away from the $35 dollar version on eTrailer!
