Default TR1 on/off switch

Does anyone know where to buy a couple of switches similar to the one supplied with the TR1.I am looking for a push button on/off switch that illuminates when in the on position. I would like to use it to turn on the under water led lights I purchased from Chris. Figured I would post here before contacting the factory. Thanks

As an update, I contacted the factory and the on/off switch is $180.00, looks like I will use a rocker or toggle switch.

You should be able to find something similar to tha tswitch at the radio shack. Did you try online to find something? Do a google search for lighted push button switches. They ahve to have them somewhere cheaper than what was quoted above.

nsh, I bought a lighted toggle switch at west marine today, I did spend some time searching the web and quite a few sites with no success, on/off switches that are the push button type are not that common if they are not the momentary type.

Google search of " illuminated pushbutton switch" gives plenty of (non-momentary) results for swiches that would probably work OK but don't happen to have marine rating. However, Cole-Hersee and Sea Choice amongst others have non-illuminated pushbutton spst on/off (not momentary) marine switches that you could put an LED indicator next to.

Nothing wrong with a toggle-easier to know if it is on or off if the indicator light fails.
