Lighted water pump switch ?

Below is a really crappy photo of my water pump switch. We keep leaving it on by mistake. Is there a lighted replacement that fits exactly where this one is? I realize I could probably go to radio shack and just wire a separate led near the switch, I just thought the lighted switch would look cleaner.

Second question, does the surrounding plate just pop off if I pry up one edge, or is it removed some other way? I can tell from behind that two screws are used to hold the switch itself in place... just don't want to break the cover plate via incorrect removal.

Camping world would be a good place to look or a large RV shop that has parts.

My Greyhawk came standard with all three pump switches lighted, that way if one switch is on they all light up.. I imagine CW or other on line retailer would be less expensive but as a last resort a Jaycon dealer should be able to get the parts neseccary

I removed the switch. The mfg is Sigma. On the side of the switch is embossed LR-20985. I believe the actual part number from sigma is 1B-10-U-315-G. All that really matters is that the cutout is 0.550" x 1.125" Sigma makes an illuminated version of this switch, as do other mfg's. I'll take photos when I do the actual switch replacement.

Lighted switches of that size are readily available. Check the Camping World (and similar) catalogs.


Just keep in mind that you will have to provide a separate ground for the light.

Only took me a few months, but I finally got around to completing this little project, even though I purchased the replacement switch quite some time ago.

I have a 1207 pup. We have a bad habit of leaving the water pump on when we are away, and/or when the tank is low, which results in the pump running unnecessarily.

Here is my existing switch:

You can see the bezel easily pops off then the switch can be removed:

I purchased a lighted replacement here for a little over $6.00 including shipping.:

Of course, since the existing switch was not lighted, I needed to provide ground to the switch, which I did through the existing block behind the power converter:

When all was done, I have exactly what I wanted - a switch that is extremely obvious when turned on:

It may not be the most sophisticated mod, but I make sure I turn the pump off every time I am not using my sink.

Thanks for the link Hattie. In my case, I needed a switch with a white body to match the existing. I found a few alternatives, but often the shipping was so high it wasn't worth it. For $6, the ebay link I provided above was the cheapest I found for a lighted, white switch.
