6-Way Power Seat Switch Needed

Hi all:
I have a 1985 Airstream 345 that is in need of a 6 way power seat switch.
Original maker is long since out of business as B & L Industries in CA.
Has anyone located another supplier for this switch (driver side) ?
The only part of the switch that doesn't work is the control that more whole seat to the rear. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Look on ebay for an early Ford power seat switch for a late 60s to 70s Lincoln, Thunderbird or Cougar. This switch might be what you're looking for.

For some reason, I always thought these power seat switches were from 70 to 80's GM model cars. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1978-1987-Gr...xY-9V5&vxp=mtr

Derek, if your coach has the Chevy style then Airstream made a change sometime after 86. My 84 310 and the 86 345 that I dismantled had the Ford switches in them.

Some of those power seat switches came from Ford and some from GM. Mine are exactly like those used on Cadillacs from the 80's and 90's. Recommend going to a used car part center like Pull-A-Part and see whats available. Main thing to consider is if the switch plug matches what you have that ties into the wiring harness.
