Default Source for factory style wall switches?

Had to remount the assist handle on the outside of our 2307C and rework the mounting recently due to stripped screws -removing the handle revealed that the chrome upper and lower sections are hollow, so it should be pretty easy to run a pair of small gauge wires down into the handle and put a white LED in there to light the horizontal white fluted section embedded in the center.

This reminded me that my wife also asked recently about installing a moderately-bright light that would directly illuminate the fold-out steps at night - seems like a good idea, as neither of us has night vision that's as good as it once was.

Neither project would be particularly complex, but I'd prefer controlling both lights with factory-appearing switches - anyone know of a source for switches and finish plates that would match the one on the underside of the cabinet above the dinette?

I'd post a photo, but the HiLo went back to the storage yard today......

I was able to find those type of switches at an older rv parts supply house that has now gone out of business
I would look at older rv parts supply houses in your area
Check out : rv doctor in Sacramento
It's a rv salvage yard that I have good luck with

Good thought - I've dealt with RV Doctor George's place before, is a good source for odd and older RV parts.
