Tilt Switch source?

I have various tilt switches on my MH. In the extra door lock, the steps, and the levelers. I assume they are mercury tilt switches about 3/8"to 1/2" diameter and 1 1/2" long with two wires connected.

Some of them have broken the wires off, and while I have had some success soldering them back on, I would prefer to find replacements.

I found something close and I need to measure to see if they are exact replacements at McMaster-Carr McMaster-Carr

Has anyone found a direct replacement?

Paul

15 degrees seams like a large Differential Angle for your useage in a motor home. Other than that size would not effect operation.

15 degrees should be fine ir they fit. They are differentiating between horisontal and vertical.
