Not sure why Amazon and Ebay think all marine switches should be ON/OFF/ON. I need to replace the power switch for my switch panel and everything I looked at the has more than 3 pins is ON/OFF/ON. I think out of 12 switches I only have 2 that are ON/OFF/ON and 1 does not need to be.

Lights(running/anchor), dual fuel tanks(gauge), starboard fill (auto/man), starboard recirculate (auto/man), port fill (auto/man), port recirculate (auto/man). 6 of 9 on a Skeeter are three position switches. To get the exact same switch, but off/on, go to Oriellys. They have them in three-way or two-way. They even have labels that go behind the square colored part for identification when the switch is activated.

After lots of searching finally found it on Ebay. Exact same switch but amber when on instead of red. Not bad that power is different. I can use the old switch rocker cover which is already labelled. I have unused switches I could move but for $15 why move a 13 year old switch.

Make sure you search for Carling marine switches. Many of the online switches are not marine grade

That is what I bought. Installed last Saturday. All is well. Indicator light is not lit full time like old switch. Now I have to fix my instrument lights. It is the switch next to the main panel switch I replaced so I may have knocked a connector loose.

thanks, company I bought stated that they supply a wire diagram with every switch, wrong. I had to go back and look it up. I knew from pulling the old one where the wire went but just wanted to 2x check.

On the Carling 2 is positive, 3 is power out and 7 is the light negative.

Does not matter how many legs on the switch.
