Thank you , I guess its back to the Airstream junk yard, I guess if they dont got this part, I could replace the whole box that the switch is in, I think all the plugs will plug into everything I got, and my unit happens to be a Duo Therm Brisk air.
its a little crazy being we got the whole rig ready to roll, then the switch snaped, and that means, no AC , tomorrow is a new day. thanks againg.John

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer.
The Brisk Air is not OEM, that's what I wanted to know.
Since you have the switch out, you can "hot wire" the connection so the fan and compressor will run. Tape the connection, and you can turn it on and off with the breaker. You can fix it properly when you get back from your trip.

Let me jump in here guys...the other day I went to turn off my AC in the morning and when I 'flick' it to the off position, it does not turn off. Any thing I need to know? I will flip it back and forth modestly to see if it is a short, but nothing happens...am I due for a new thermostat?

I answered your question in another thread, but that answer would not be correct if you are still using the original a/c unit with the remote thermostat. If you have the remote thermostat, you probably have a bad switch on it, and replacement is warranted. The good news is, you can use a newfangled digital thermostat for a house to control the a/c unit. It will give you the advantage of the thermostat shutting off everything, including the fan, when desired temp is reached. It makes it quieter in the trailer without the fan running 24/7. I got one of those thermostats at Home Despot for under $20.

Problem fixed, it looks as my switch was way out of date, but over here at Bobs RV in N. FL, I got an old used box with the switch and the controls for $10.00, the plugs are the same, got it all hooked up, and everything works just like it used to, anyway, the new one I got looks like the one on the left side of my picture, and now I have it as a spair. But if its what Redhalk needs, I got it, but it cost me $30.00 bucks, The whole replacement job was not to bad, so its back on the road again with AC, Thank you for your advice,
John
