Even after I read the many bad reviews I decided to give this a try. I wasn't going to just let my tongue jack get rusty and broken. I know alot of you said it leaked and wasn't water resistant so I decided to use my waterproofing spray I use on family shoes on this cover. After a few crazy wind/rain storms it is staying dry. Hubby and I are happy with it.

While you could possibly run the power from the 7-Way to the jack, it is not ideal and you could overload the circuit. I recommend adding a battery to the trailer and providing a maintenance charge to the battery from the 7-Way. You will connect the 12 volt circuit from the 7-Way trailer connector to the positive battery terminal. The jack will get its power from the trailer battery this way and not from the vehicle 7-Way. Having the wire to provide a maintenance charge will only maintain...
The former, obviously, and through personal experience, is much harder to use than the latter. However, the primary benefit of the manual jack is that it COULD be less prone to breaking since it is a simpler device. The electric trailer jack could fail electrically or mechanically. The electric trailer jack will also require installation or some know-how as far as wiring goes.

Eliminate the physical exertion commonly associated with lifting and lowering a trailer when you use a Stromberg Carlson 3500 lb. Electric Tongue Jack. It does the heavy lifting for you, and has lots of other features as well. For example, the trailer tongue electric jack has equalizing bars that are easy to set, so you get better results, and two separate LED night lights that provide both added safety and additional illumination. The leg extends up to 23; and although it is heavy and durable, it's also surprisingly lightweight and easy to store.

A trailer tongue jack is designed to lift the front of the trailer, so you first need to know how much this is. The most accurate way to determining trailer tongue weight is to, well, weigh your trailer. Or you can spitball by figuring out what 15% of your trailer's maximum weight is, as tongue weight should be no more than 15% of the weight of your trailer.


I went out to the warehouse to look at the Lippert Electric A-Frame Tongue Jack, # LC285318. In order to remove the screws that secure the cover you will need a long and thin phillips head screwdriver. If you don't already have one, you'll want to purchase a Protective Cover, # UF38-944020, to keep your jack dry when you are at the campsite. This will protect the head of the jack and keep the motor protected from the elements.

Mildew Prevention and Treatment No matter how carefully maintained, every RV cover can be a target for a case of mildew. What causes mildew and what are the most sensible ways to prevent and treat it? Mildew is a form of fungus present everywhere in the world. It is a primitive plant form that feeds on other plants and produces microscopic, seed-like spores that float freely. It takes dark, damp conditions to encourage their growth. Synthetic cover fabrics do not support the growth of mildew. Natural cover fabrics (those containing cotton) can support the growth of mildew, but such fabrics are treated with mildew inhibitors that will, with proper care, typically outlast the warranty period of the cover. However, dirt, pollen and other environmental particles that embed between the fbers of any cover fabric are gourmet fare for mildew and therefore, no RV cover fabric can prevent mildew from growing. Most remedies rely on sodium hypochlorite (household bleach) to remove mildew. A good, strong, all-around solution is ½ cup household bleach per gallon of water. Do not use liquid detergents in combination with bleaches. Scrub the affected surfaces with a soft brush, using rubber gloves and eye protection. Rinse thoroughly. For cleaning our covers, we highly recommend 303 Marine & Recreation Multi-Surface Cleaner which is safe and effective. Be aware that repeated cleanings can diminish the water repellency of the canvas. To restore water repellency to factory-new levels, we highly recommend 303 Marine & Recreation Fabric Guard. Remember that anything used to kill or remove mildew will wash or wear away over time, so be prepared for repeated treatments as part of your maintenance routine.

Then inside, we're going to have a nice soft material. Even if the wind's blowing this around a little bit or something like that we're not going to have to worry about any abrasion on our jack. The way it works is the simple drawstring here is going to pull down and secure around the outer tube of our jack. We'll just slide it over the top just like this, then cinch to close. This is going to protect not only the jack motor body itself but also our switches and out light from any kind of discoloration from UV fading. Also, it's going to protect it from the rain, the snow, dirt, debris.
