RV Rocker Switches not working-1997 Land Yacht

Inside the main door to the RV is a Rocker Switch panel with 4 switches: Step, x, Ceiling, and Battery.

The Battery switch works fine; however, the other 3 do not light up when you turn them on and they donít work. I replaced the switches with new ones, but still nothing.

Any ideas?Click image for larger version

Light bulbs?
Light is turn on at the light?

I have the same switch in my 1996, can't tell you how many times I've forgotten to make sure the light is turned on at the light.

A tester light might be in your future.

Good Luck,

Thanks for responding. When the switches are on, they should light up green. They are not. I made sure all lights, etc controlled by each switch are flipped on. They do not come on when the switch is in the on position.

Sincerely

RV Rocker Switches (dash)

I have additional info to share about the RV rocker switches located on the dash in the drivers area.

After my Aux Gen switch stopped working, I spent a month searching for the replacement. First, you will be excited to know that Airstream bought all of the green switches from the Peugeot Car Company in France!! Who knew they had such culture!! haha

I found a company in Texas on Ebay with the used/rebuilt parts. It was $12 to get a replacement based on the part number. Access was easier than expected because they are simply plug in's. Mine are located next to the TV in a vertical row; with access I could push the whole set (4 buttons) out of the dash and removed the bad switch. Reinstall was doing the reverse. However, if you still have the original tube TV in the dash, it will not be this easy. Mine was changed to a flat screen on an adjustable arm.

Also, before changing this switch, I upgraded both of the voltage regulators. On the diesel there are 2, one in the compartment under the windshield and other on the right side of the motor, both easy access.
