Frustration with Switches in RV

Not sure if anyone has experienced this, but since we have owned our 38RL, frustration which switch to turn on.

Tried using label maker, but eventually they peel off (especially in cold weather)

So, this is what I did:

If you decide to do this, the top caps of switch cover come off, but be careful prying them off, they are only plastic and little tabs will break off in the back, if not removed carefully!

Went to a local Trophy Shop that makes name plates and the like. Very reasonable, I paid $3.00 per cover.


I wish REDWOOD would do this on all the RV's they produce.

That looks so good. I know most of the switches, but not the DW. She just turns them all on. I keep teasing her and telling her that RW could save a lot of money and just place one switch in the unit.

Actually, if you have the LincPad, it has a master light switch to turn "most" of them on.

Those look great! Vaughan (piper guy) saw that issue early on and helped quite a few of us out with custom labels. I think he set quite a few folks up at the rally last year as well.

I'm curious as to the "Hitch Air and Deflate" switches. I assume they control the inflatable tire on the pin box. Where they factory installed?
