Before thinking it's a bad switch, test the connection with a meter. I suspect it's only corrosion.

It is a not a great lamp and it is subjected to lots to water splash and is not really waterproof, barely water resistant.

I did as the previous poster and put in a 36 LED panel, much better light, I also greased the connector with dielectric grease. Works fine now.

Ideally a marine grade lamp would be best, but these are not cheap, and truth be told, I have rarely used it...

Thanks for the replies. I tested it last month by replacing the bulb with a new bulb. It didn't work. Then I shorted across the switch with a screwdriver and the light worked, so I concluded that the switch is bad. Honestly I doubt I'll ever use the light because I added a Husky electric jack that had 3 lights on it to light up the coupler area. I just bugs me that it doesn't work as intended. I'm a bit anal that way!
