auxiliary dashboard switch option

I just saw this over on the Sprinter-Forum and thought I'd share (no affiliation ... though I did just place an order). A guy there came up with an adapter that lets you insert a standard marine switch into one of the factory switch blank locations with no drilling or cutting. Looks like a very clean install!

Link to where you can buy it:

Link to sprinter-forum thread on dash switches where I found it:

Looks slick. Although for that money, I think I could take the blank and modify it to accept a switch.

If you can afford an Airstream Interstate Mercedes Chassis, you can afford the cost of the matching switch and holder.

Funny how people say, "If you can afford that, you can afford this, too."

My reply is usually, "Since I bought that, I can't afford this anymore."
