Customer Question
Hi. I...

Hi. I need a replacement remote for a searchlight. The part # is###-##-####

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

The toggle is broken but the interior is water damaged and rusted. I believe the solution is a new controller

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?

The connectors to the remote seem to be okay

Mechanic's Assistant: What else should I tell the Marine Mechanic?

That is it
