I still have a few switches that were ordered but I do not have your addresses.

Please send me your address and I will ship you the switch(es).

You can mail me a check when you receive the switch(es).

I would like to send them before I sail south.

Otherwise I will be back mid to late November.

I have broken a few of these switches over the years. I have done this by reaching over the generator to retrieve something stored behind the genset.

I received a quote from my Onan dealer and on Amazon for around $90- plus tax which is ridiculous.

I tracked down the OEM manufacturer and the cost is about $23- plus a one time set up fee of about $50- I plan on ordering 2 of these. They stated that they make this for ONAN. If anyone is interested please let me know and I can order them for you $33- each plus USPS of about $8.00.

I will order the switches within a week.
