Default House Panel Battery Switch

Need to replace the panel switch, Sigma 2S for the house battery in my 2010 Chevy/2010 RoadTrek 190 Popular, went to my local Camping World they have only a Sigma P2-61C On-Off-On switch with the following information:

16A @ 125 VAC, 12A@250 VAC 3/4 HP
13A @ 125 VAC, 10A @ 250 VAC
10A @ 14V (T)
20A @ 125 VAC / 12 VDC

The information on my original Sigma 2S switch is as follows:

13A - 125 AC - 10A - 250 VAC - 1/2 HP - 125 - 250 VAC - 5 A - 14 V Tung - 20 A - 12 VDC

I was told by the parts service advisor at Camping World I could replace my original Sigma 2S switch with the Sigma P2-61C switch.

I question that my switch was 1/2 HP and their replacement switch was 3/4 HP was told that was no problem.

Would like to know if I can replace the Sigma 2S with the Camping World Sigma P2-61C.

Ron

As the switch merely passes current, and the new one is an upgrade capable of handling more current for the same volts, it looks like no problem.

I installed the P2-61C rocker switch which is a On-Off-On disconnect switch for the Auxiliary batteries on the Monitor Panel located on the shelf above the passenger lounge seat.

When I activated, (Off) the switch nothing happened, both the Carbon Monoxide and Propane Leak Detectors lights stayed on, the ceiling lights went on when I pressed the light switch, both Auxiliary batteries where not deactivated.

I do know the wiring were correct on the rocker switch, as each wiring were marked with small white string tags.

There has to be a problem somewhere other than with the rocker switch.

Possibly someone on the forum or from RoadTrek may have a solution to the problem and would advise, would appreciate.

I also was informed by Campers Inn where we ordered our van that they do not stock the switch for the Monitor Panel.
