I'm looking for a replacement for my OEM double position rocker switch. Anyone know of a source? Or what brand they are?

I had to replace my heater which was wired to the AUX switch with one speed and I'd like to take advantage of both fan speeds if it means simply replacing the rocker.

Thanks for any info anyone has.

How embarrassing. Not only is it the wrong switch (it's not a three-position switch), I took a closer look at MikeG's ebay link, and the seller is...Great Lakes Skipper.

This (http://www.emersonindustrial.com/en-US/egselectricalgroup/products/specialty-products/switches-indicator-lights/mcg-switches/0852-0862-rockers/Pages/default.aspx), I think, is the manufacturer's page for this line of switches, but they don't show this style.

Charlotte Ski Boats (http://www.charlotteskiboats.com/mastercraft_parts.cfm?category=Instrumentation&CurrentPage=18) has a big listing of switches also. They list the part number (509009) as a two-position switch.

Ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lot-of-9-McGill-Rocker-Switch-On-Off-On-0862-0012-/171115378301)does have some three position switches that look about right - but aren't lighted. And, you have to buy 9 of them.

Thanks for the info guys. I found all those same switches on eBay but not exactly what I was looking for. I plan on calling Great Lakes Skipper today to see if I can find the switch.

I just called Great Lakes Skipper and couldn't be more disappointed. The woman I spoke to was kinda rude and basically told me to call my local dealer. SMH.....

Try Charlotte Ski Boats. They'll probably be nicer.

I have a 96 Prostar and had trouble during my refurb finding those switches too. I wound up replacing all of them with lighted Contura switches from www.newwiremarine.com that had labeling on them. I MIGHT have a switch that matches what you need lying around, but it would be up at my cabin and I'm not heading up there for another week or so. If you want do PM me with a picture, I could check for you and you could have it, n/c, gratis, free....I'll even ship it free..'cause that is the kinda' guy I am!

Yes they look right but they don't have an illuminated on-off-on.
