Ceiling light switch for '74 AS International

I am trying to locate a replacement for the three-position light switch shown in the photo. It is for my 1974 Airstream 27' Overlander International and the service manual lists it as a Leviton #05232. I have also seen it listed as a Cole-Hersee Co. #72078. Any ideas?

You're looking for a 3-way rotary switch. Here's one example. The problem seems to be finding one with the really thin threaded part for the original knobs to attach to. I haven't managed to find that, but then again I'm missing a couple of knobs so I may be pushed to a different knob style anyway.

I ended up finding these are our local Ace Hardware.

Vintage trailer supply and inland RV both carry them. Outdoors Mary might as well.

Thanks! I purchased the one you suggested and ran into the same problem of it not working with our old knobs. In fact, I'm using it without the light cover while searching for the perfect replacement!

There are two of them.

Click here to see the one that replaces the switch you have


That is a hardy switch and will handle all (6) 1141 bulbs. If you are converting over, or already have converted over, to LED you can use the smaller cheaper one. It will handle the small power draw. The wire colors will be different but the operation is the same.
