Power Switches

I must have the worst luck with things coming off my 2012 SS 188 during towing.   So far I've lost 2 deck plates (I fixed it by replacing the ring that it screws into), a bench (fixed it by valcroing them down), the plastic cover on the stereo, the Hurricane sticker on the steering wheel, and this weekend, my master power switch!   I don't get it.  I don't go over 55 mph and tow it on smooth highways.  Fortunately, the switch stayed in the boat but I can't seem to get it to snap back on.  Very fustrating!  Guess it's back to the dealer before my warranty expires!    Is it just me or is this common?

    @epavuk, its odd you mention this.  Two other posters have complained about switch damage on their boats.  I'm wondering if Hurricane received a bum batch of switches.  There is a post in the middle of the switch that it clips to.  It should clip quite easily and if not, the switch must be broken and getting the dealer to replace it is a good thing.

    @Epavuk ... let us know if you don't get this revolved through the dealer.

    Thanks guys!   I'm sure the dealer will take care of it.  I have to take it in for the one year motor maintenance anyway.
