Carver 506 rocker switch replacements in Bridge

Postby jfloyd1010 » November 12th, 2018, 9:42 pm

Does anyone know where to get replacement rocker switches for the control panels in 2001 Carver 506 flybridge ? See attached pics of my current switch panels.
Thanks for any assistance.

Those seem to be made of unobtainium! The usual places had little however I was able to find out they are produced by Eaton. http://www.eaton.com/Eaton/ProductsServ ... /index.htm My suggestion would be to find out what the hole size is and use something more available to replace them. Great Lakes Skipper had a few. https://www.greatlakesskipper.com/catal ... witch&cat=

Hi Jfloyd.

Midnightsun may very well be right.

However, the Carver Customer Service folks are very responsive. You can write to them here:
https://www.carveryachts.com/contact/contact-us/
In the body of the email, you could include a link to this page so they can see the photos. They'll know exactly where the switches came from and be able to give you some additional advice on how best to proceed. Good luck.

John

Please do call Carver as it was my understanding that most boat manufacturers sell off everything to places such as Great Lakes Skipper and no longer carry the part. Curious to see if they sell off only excess stock or all of it.

Thanks folks for the replies. I was able to get ahold of Carver Customer Service / now Marquis - Larson out of Pulaski, WI. Phone 920.822.3214 , who found me replacement switches. See attached pic. He found a new switch for each of my designations from pics above. I attach a pic of some of what he sent me.

Those would be the same ones I have on my 2007. Which are the Carling L Series. My understanding is they came directly through Carver? That being the case then they do keep stock and only sell the overstock.
