There are several different types of rocker switches used all of which are readily available. If you post a pic of yours we can point you in the right direction.

Your best bet is to go to etrailer.com and research their selection of landing gear switches. etrailer.com doesn't always have the best prices, but you'll be able to identify your switches with the correct Lippert part number and then shop around.

The one for the landing jacks need to be rated for at least 30 amps the stabs are less but can be replaced with the higher amperage one. I have changed my landing jack one with a switch from a auto parts dealer and put a reversing relay next to the landing gear motor. because of the landing gear pulling such high amps (at or around 30amps) the switches even the high amp switches don't last to long. The relay I bought is the same unit they use on my hydraulic unit for my slides and was found on E-bay so far it is working great.

I have had to replace my landing jacks switch twice. I do have the manual crank and have needed to use it both times. I can tell you the landing jacks go down a lot easier than they go up.

I have an 2018 Wildcat 29RLX. I have the same switches you have on your 2016.
I ordered the back one on Amazon and the front one I ordered from Lippert. The front one SKU # is 141892 and it was $54.00. The back one was less than $20 but I cannot remember the exact amount.

You got that right. My switch quit last Saturday when I was trying to leave a park. I took it loose and tried to get to to work... tried to jump it - no luck. So I used the crank. When I got home to my shed, the switch worked. I need to get a spare.

I found some pictures of what I did with mine and the relay was not that expensive from e-bay. Used the same switch to control the relay that way I get full power to the motor instead of having to go thru the switch and then back up to the motor.

Are these switches that fragile? Just wondering as I rarely use ours and just use the remote.

Yes most times on my rear stabs it is water intrusion but the front one just seem to not hold up your lucky as the remote uses relays for the switching.

You made me think I bought a radio control for my trailer winch. I could use one for my jacks now that I got a relay on it.
