looking for switches for my dash on my console. cant really mount them out of the weather. may build a little box with a cover to protect them but have not had luck with anything off the shelf. any suggestions?

Carling Contura switches are IP68-rated - of course you need a gasket or water tight panel to keep water from getting under them into whatever, but the switches themselves are rated properly.
Or toggle switches with "boots"?

Mine have been on my CC console for over 12 years now, and they get soaped and rinsed with each trip and no problems!:thumbsup:
