I struggle with the RS website.

The problem for me is that if you know what you want, but what you know it as (description) isn't 'exactly' as RS call it, you'll never find it.

I think it's shite.

Yuppers, the site is quite hard work if you don't call it the same as RS, i tend to get the catologues out as i find it much easier

Tony,
I'm really finding it hard to source good quality Carling switches over here.
I'm after a new set for my trim tabs, they have to be momentary on/ off/ momentary on, black with black holders. I need two switches with the trim/up/down label on with a pair of matched holders which should fix together.
I used to buy them from Sowester but I wouldn't mind if you could PM me a price and we could come to some arrangement if it's not tooooooo bad.
Cheers,
Damon
