I'd like to replace the wall switch with a dimmer switch in my mobile home. The current switch is a self contained switch without a wall box. The switch fastens directly to 14 AWG Romex. Where may I purchase such a switc?

You need to Kill the power, cut the wires, install a cut-in switch box, then install a standard dimmer.

depth shouldnt be a problem, we have replaced receptacles in two mobile homes and neither had any problem fitting the old work boxes, even the walls made of 1x3's fit without a problem. Not contradicting you, Joe, just my two cents. good luck bill

This one works well for shallow spaces.
