Other types of RV accessories are designed to protect mechanical aspects of your camper. For example, new trailer brakes and torsion axles are necessary if your vehicle breaks down. However, you may also need to get RV leveling blocks to keep your camper from moving under uneven ground. These items are useful for keeping your camper running properly.


I have used this cover to cover the tow jack on my trailer which has been parked up on the drive of my beach house for the last 12+ months. It has therefore been subjected to a marine type environment which plays havoc with house door fittings etc. The cover has survived intact and is now still in an "as new" condition. I am very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend it. 424779
There are several places water can get into any given jack. Water should be able to drain out though. If the exit points which would be at the lowest point are clogged then the water would not be able to exit. You could use a jack cover like # UF38-944020 for future use. There is no telling how much damage is really done. If there is enough corrosion then something inside could be structurally compromised and fail when you have weight on the jack. I would not be comfortable offering...

The shipping weight of etrailer's Electric A-Frame Jack w/Footplate, # EJ-3520-BBX, is 25 pounds. This jack has received great reviews from our customers stating that it is well made easy to install. We don't put our name on just anything, so you can rest assured that this jack is good quality at a fair price. To protect your jack from the elements when not in use, I recommend the Ultra-Fab Protective Cover, # UF38-944020. 

I like that it is a custom fit for my jack only and doesn’t look like an oversized bag. Now everything is organized, chains are up from the ground, electrical plug hidden in a small pouch away from the rain and there is even a window around the controls so everything is fully accessible while the cover is on the jack. I basicslly never need to remove it.

Selecting an electric jack for your toy hauler or camper can be overwhelming. Based on your 2100 lb. tongue weight, I personally recommend the Husky Brute Electric Trailer Jack part # HT87248. It has a ball-bearing screw system that allows it to run quietly, quickly and smoothly. Another benefit is that it shuts off automatically before topping or bottoming out, which prevents damage to the gears. This Husky Brute Jack has a lifting capacity of 3,000 lbs. which would be more than you'd...

It sounds like there may be a short in your Bulldog jack which could have been caused by excessive moisture from the rain. Also I recommend checking the wiring from the jack to the ground and power sources. The jack grounds through the mounting hardware so you may need to temporarily remove the jack (be sure to support the trailer another way) and sand away any corrosion. Also check for corrosion or damage to the power wire and where it connects to the battery. The light switch...

I’m interested in the freelance writer position. But before I blow you away with all the reasons I’m going to be your next writer, I would like to tell you a little about myself: I didn’t grow hair until I was about five years old, which made everyone who crossed my stroller’s path believe me to be a boy (my name is Casey, which definitely didn’t help). Hope I got your attention. (Via @CaseCav)
If your existing shade ranges from 5 to 9 inches in height, you'll choose a 9" Clever Cover. If your existing shade ranges from 9 - 12 inches in height, you'll choose a 12" Clever Cover. Just tighten the ribbon to adjust height of the Clever Cover. It's fine if the Clever Cover is longer than your shade; the covers are meant to be used as a slipcover. In fact, a Clever Cover that is a few inches bigger than your existing shade - especially if the shade is too small for the lamp - can transform the proportions of your lamp and create a much more proportional, balanced look - in an instant!
