Brake switch sticking - roadside Sunday patch repair?

So, read all the threads to know I have a bad brake switch. Van is running fine (knock on wood) but the brake lights are on. Not sure if this can harm anything and I have zero codes. It's Sunday and nobody at the area auto stores carries a new switch. Am I ok to run it as long as it isn't stalking? If not, is there a roadside repair or patch to get me home? I'm 200 miles away.

Just a note... hooked up a uhaul car dolly and this started. I checked #5 fuse under seat and was fine. Am I missing anything?

If the dolly's connection to ground (Sprinter frame) is bad, it would shunt tail light current through the path of least resistance: the stop light circuit.
