Firefly touch panel lightswitch replacement

Hello this is my first post. I own a 2017 30's Airstream Classic and the touch panel light switch above the arm of the sofa has a problem with the button for the dinette lights sticking in the on position and the three lights above the table will not turn off. All the other switches work fine. I contacted Airstream for the part number and how to remove the switch.

At the present time the switch has been removed and unplugged. I am using the master panel next to the tv to control the lights.
Has anyone had this problem with their Airstream?

Looks like the switch is bad and I will be ordering one tomorrow from a dealer.

I contacted two dealerships about ordering a replacement panel switch for my 2017 Airstream Classic. Two quotes over $650, about had a heart attack. I took a can of air spray the kind you use to clean sticky computer keyboards and sprayed really good between the buttons and the panel contacts then the male and female plug-ins. Let it sit for a couple hours and boom problem fixed. Must have had dust build up behind switches or switch contacts. Happy camper again. Sent emails to two dealers and Airstream thanking them for their assistance.
