If need be turn power off and use a chisel to get old switch out. Install new switch Disconnect wires and install on new switch.

Problem solved. With a little "destructive" effort the switch comes out of the front of the housing, the back does not pull off. The old switch was green and corroded, water problem. After it drys out, DW40, I will install the new one. Thanks

I would use dielectric grease on the connections before putting back together.

On the backside of mine is on the skirt and rear wheel would throw water on the switch. Real good engineering so I cut hole in side of a plastic instant coffee jar to fit switch inside ran wires out the bottom and sealed it with silicone to the skirting. screw the cap on and I got a water proof switch with access.

Get a plastic compartment with dood and put it under cover (inside the compartment) Easy to enlarge the existing hole for the recess of the compartment

I replaced my switch that was located in the front of my RV. I just hooked up the wires to the new switch and used electrical tape and located the switch inside the storage door. I have the old switch back in the original position to fill the hole. Now there is no water problems and my switch is in a locked area.
