Self Contained Mobile Home light switch 3 Bundle (pics included)

I've watched videos and have seen other threads on here on how to complete this task if there are 2 bundles, but I have 3 bundles?
This Switch is located in the hallway
They all appear to be fed from the cieling with two coming from the same direction but one seems to be coming more from the side. Maybe running to the bedroom switch in the other room? Each bundle contains the black, white, and copper ground.

So how would I wire this to a new standard switch? If this were just normal 2 bundles I know what to do but what to do with bundle 3? Do I put the two blacks together that seem to be coming from the ceiling on one terminal and then the other by itself as it is currently? :vs_worry: cap the whites all together, then cap the grounds together and then pigtail to the ground screw on the new switch?

I already have the blue old workbox to put into the wall once I remove the self contained switch.

posting them in next post I guess since the forum settings do not allow image links on the first post.

looks like the top 2 are #1 power in #2 the feed for another circuit,the one on the bottom goes to the load. looks like the black is broken between the two sides. the white $ bare just tie in to help hold in the wall.all of the whites would go together. cap them off , the bare the same way.then the two blacks on top would be tied together, add a pigtail for switch,then the single wire black would go to the other side of the switch. check the two together to see if power is present, if so follow above. keep us posted! :thumbup::thumbup:
just rembered one thing, mark your wires before you take them out, it can get confusing!:surprise::surprise::surprise:
when you do be careful, 120 bites hard. i hate these switches & outlets, there crap in my opinion.:smile::smile::smile:
