    • Once the 3 rocker switches are removed, disconnect the wiring connectors from the switch body. Set the switch bodies aside for use in a later step.

    • Take note of each harness disconnected from its respective switch body. Mark each harness if needed to ensure the harness connectors are inserted into the correct switch on the new panel. (i.e. awning, awning light, running board lights, door light)

  11. On the right-most switch, the bezel will need to be removed to expose the screws securing the switch. Simply grab the bezel and pry off using your fingers. Use a #2 Phillips bit to remove the screws securing the switch. With the switch removed, cut the wires right behind the connectors on the back of the switch. Discard this switch as it will not be reused. Using the wire strippers, strip approx. 1/2" insulation off the wires. Insert the included replacement spade terminals onto the wires. Using the crimpers, crimp the replacement spade terminals onto the wire ends.

    • Using either a jigsaw, or an oscillating tool, cut along the lines marked in red. You can use masking tape as a cut guide if needed.

    • Once the cut is completed, it should look like this. We are simply removing the material between the original switches to make one large opening.

    • The cut does not need to be absolutely perfect. However do not cut beyond the existing screw holes.

  13. Using the 3 rocker switches removed previously, remove the original switch face from each switch using the switch face removal tool. Insert the tool under the face, and lever the tool to pop off the switch face. Once the face of the switch is removed, remove the switch body from the original mounting plate. Depress the tabs on the back of the switch body, and remove from the original mounting plate.

    • Insert the switch bodies into the new RoamRig switch panel. Press the bodies in from the front, and ensure they are fully seated into the RoamRig panel.

    • Once the switch bodies are installed, using the new labeled switch faces provided, install them onto the switch bodies. Simply press them on until they snap into place.

    • With the switches installed into the RoamRig panel, now is a good time to test fit the panel into the cutout, and make any additional trim cuts to ensure proper fitment.

  14. Connect the respective wire harness to their respective switch bodies on the back of the RoamRig switch panel. Connect the provided wire harness for the 12v outlet. There are two ends of the harness. The outlet on the switch panel will use the two angled spade connectors. NOT the piggyback connectors. the red wire goes to + and the black wire goes to -
