electrical switch panel housing unit

hi, sorry if this is in the wrong forum, nothing actually wrong with the electrical panel but the plastic housing unit has failed, just gone brittle and cracked. Any thoughts on a replacement unit ? Vintage Trailer supply don't stock this part.
trailer is a 1972 Sovereign.
many thanks in advance, Nick

Try Inland RV and Out-of-doors mart, either might have a replacement in stock, but probably not.

Otherwise your best bet is to repair the plastic by taking the whole thing out and using fiberglass and epoxy on the back.

If you know anyone that does fiberglass work i would remove the unit remove the gauges and fiberglass cloth on the face of the plastic. Fiberglass cloth dries crystal clear. If you want a flat surface you will have to apply additional coats of resin but when done it will be as flat as glass.

Fiberglass also hides the cracks.

The mailbox was glassed before painting
