Yes, TG the switches are mounted tight against the inside of the trailer skin. I was thinking that they are 28 years old if they are original switches and probably brittle. However they look great minus the small chip I put on one of them. I looked at some rocker switches and you are right they do have clips on them. I would guess that mine do also. I might not be right? So I thought hey maybe some of these fellows have ran into the same situation as me and can guide me from the urge to just break them out of there. With age comes patience to a point so I will wait until I have exhausted all avenues then break them ha!
THank you for your reply.
