Rocker switches

I had the covers on 2 of my switches break today on my 2011 ss188. Bad luck I guess but I would think they would last longer than 4 months. I bought it new in February.

The dealer is almost 200 miles round trip so it would be easier to just buy them online. I've found several sites that sell just the actuators so I won't have to buy the whole switch. Anyone know what brand the rocker switches are?

    I've had one of mine apart and it has the manufacturer stamped on it however I'm almost 100% certain they're Carling.  http://www.carlingtech.com/rocker-switches-v-series-ii-iii

     

    Perhaps Capt Steve can confirm with the Hurricane folks

    Hey tone...here's the response from Terri in Hurricane Customer Support...her email is [email protected]:

    The warranty on these switches is one year from the date of purchase.  I would refer them to my email.  Once they provide the boat serial number, I could order and ship these direct.

    Hi Folks, my 2011 SS188 switches have also broken.  Could I bother someone to take a picture of your switches and post them?  Since I don't think everything works on my boat, I'm trying to figure out which switch label goes in which position (and then I can troubleshoot if the device it's controlling isn't working).

    I asked the dealer to replace them accurately when the boat when in for a recall, but they just put all "AUX" on each broken switch rocker which isn't very helpful.  I'm hoping Hurricane was consistent with switch position on all 2011 SS188s and yours will help me.  Much appreciated if someone is willing to do this.

    any chance you still have the picture? My rocker switches (all but 3) were knocked off and I cant figure out where they go. I have a 2011 Sundeck 187 OB.

    Thanks

    Hi! Any way I can get that photo of the switches too? I just bought a 2011 Sundeck Sport 188 and the switches are worn so it's hard to tell what is what. Thanks!

    I just purchased a 2012 187 sun deck. I’m looking for a odiagram showing what each swatch is so I can figure out what does what.

    Hello Peterose24, I can help. Im not sure if the 2010 is the same as my 2012. I can imagine it would change much. Send me your email address and Ill send you a picture of mine when I get home, this evening.

    Just in case Gward's picture of his helm is different than yours,  I sent you a personal message, just click on the envelope icon in the upper right of the screen.

    Besides relabeling the switches yourself (like with a P-touch or some other labeling device), you also have the option of replacing the switch covers.  Here's a source for them:
