if you measure the cutout, I will look too. I think it is 1"x 3/8", but could be 7/16

And, yes the search function sucks. You better off using google and look for forum links
Interesting. My old 84 310 and the 86 345 both had a bunch of the brown hot melt. To use it on the dash would have required the dash to be mostly if not completely removed. I'll have to take some pictures of the 345 dash tomorrow.

Check out a company called Digikey for switches.

I wonder if Airstream was suffering from having things being jarred loose from the dash and one of the attempted fixes was hot melt.

closest batch I found on the link Brad provided, but have to verify cut out.
These are 27.20mm x 12.10mm

I ordered 1 of these rocker switches. Closest match I could find. Its only a on/off with no markings.

Got the above rocker switch today and yes it fits, but its not the best choice.
Profile of the switch is different. It snaps in , but could be a little tighter.
So I recommend this switch for on/off (it is 1 mm wider, which should make it snap in tighter)
RSC241D1B2R E-Switch | Switches | DigiKey

EDIT: this may have to be ON/MOM, not sure really
and this for Off/MOM for ICC Blink
RSC244D112FEED E-Switch | Switches | DigiKey

I have not been able to find a 3 way switch of that size.
If you want to look, this is a good opening size 27.20 mm x 12.10 mm

Here is the profile difference of the one I received today

Confirming this on/off switch to be a very tight snap in replacement.
It has just a little wider rim than the original, but one could shave it if so inclined
Also confirming the on/mom switch for ICC blink
