Selector switches don't like me! T.T

Awhile back the selector switch on my '92 RG550 started going out. I took the pg off and fiddled with the switch and got it working again. That was about 3 or 4 months ago, and it's starting to cut out on me again.

I got my '11 Jem 7Vwh out the other day, which I bought new, but hardly ever play. And now it's switch totally stopped working too!

I play both guitars in the rhythm position only and it's not like my pick hand is hitting the switch hard enough to even move it out of position. But I do occasionally make lite contact with it.

Now the odd thing is, so far my 2000 RG570's switch is doing just fine. I play it more than the 7V, but less than the 550. Of course it's switch is not mounted on the pg if that would even make any difference.

I'm thinking about mounting them backwards, which I imagine would require rewiring. Or maybe just dropping them down into the control cavity.
