Replacement Rocker Switch source?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Anyone know where to get a single units of these rocker switches with indicating leds?

They're everywhere on Ribs but I can't find anywhere to buy one to replace an iffy example and I don't want to buy or fit a whole panel!

The Blue Seas switches are similar. I see those more than the ones you have in the pic.

If you can get a manufacturer or a part number (probably stamped on the switch itself), yu can find it through a Google search.

Well an identical new panel is for sale here, maybe ask the seller where he gets them from or if he sells parts. The other option is to buy it, replace yours and keep the old one for spares or sell it for spares.

Both of these reference the relatively easily sourced Contura switches. I got one from the chandlers down the road and it's a slot in replacement but would look odd. The rockers covers are removeable on both types but sadly not interchangeable.

There are no manufacturers details on the switch body - a date code and no more.

That's where I borrowed the picture from and I've asked if he can supply single switches. I'll post the response.

Surely it's easier just to buy that one, the time wasted searching far outweighs the cost, never mind me coming across one for sale which you had gone to the bother of copying the image from, buy it and be done with it and move on with your life :D

I've got a brand new panel in my shed that I bought for my old RIB but never had enough electrical things to warrant fitting it, your's for 25.
