Stuck rocker switch in bathroom light

We have a 2013 Rockwood Roo that has only been used about 8 times. When I went to turn on the bathroom light this weekend it was stuck-it wouldn't move, like it was jammed. Is there anyway to fix this or do I have to replace the entire light? Seems like it hasn't been used enough to already be broken. Thanks for any help!

Push harder and if it does not work, change switch........either way you have to find out if you need to change or not.

Is it still under warranty? If so call the dealer and get a whole new light fixture. If it's not under warranty anymore and the switch is broke you might try Radio Shack for a new switch.

Those fixtures are about 11.99 at any RV supply place, or even less on e bay. Very simple to change out, too. Randy

You can, if so inclined remove it and very carefully take it apart. They are pretty cheap and can be found on ebay,etc like someone suggested.

Our trailer since day 1 has alot of different issues, one of which being the living room light switch. We always have to push hard and tap the wall to get it to turn on. For the longest time figured it was the switch only to recently find the crimp connector of the back of the switch wasn't properly crimped from factory, even after I removed the whole switch numerous times to inspect it and reinstall it so check the crimp connections behind the switch as well. If its under warranty then take it back into the dealer. Wish we would have called when we immediately discovered all these issues but we were just too caught up in using it.
