Let there be light - and a question.

Still cleaning the mung off the 71 we bought last month. Some of you have recommended Liquid Glass for the exterior. We put it on the fiberglass bulkhead in the bath - yeah get out the shades.

Turns out the almond colored main roof vent is not almond. Took it down to replace the gasket (didn't make the wasps real happy) it's actually milk white and lets in light......

We have the four position turn switches in the overhead lights - you have to "jiggle" to get them to work so I'd like to replace them. Anyone know a source for these - I've looked but no luck.

Thanks for the great advise so far...!!

Try Inland RV. I think he has the correct switches for your lights.

Inland RV does have the switches you need. I think they are $16.95 each. I just ordered them yesterday.

www.inlandrv.com.

I have no commercial relationship with this company I just find them helpful.

Even better--replace the vent. You will (90% probability) change them (or at least one) for a Fantastic Vent. This means you'll have to have some other kind of light. I used 12V flourescents and like them (very high frequency so they don't scintillate). Buying the switch will cost you as much (I think) as getting a new light fixture. So don't get all the switches until you think about your vents.
