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.

Bought one to protect the head unit on boat trailer electric jack. Works great. Bought two more to protect our eBike (pedelec) computers on the handlebars of our bicycles. Fits nicely over the brake handles and the computers to protect them from inclement weather. Our bikes sit on an external bike rack when we travel. I had to take apart the computers and use a hairdryer on them after out last two thousand mile trip. Hope these eliminate having to do that and prevent future damage to the computers. 319085
Jack Cover, (John Higson Cover, Jr.), American physicist and inventor (born April 6, 1920, New York, N.Y.—died Feb. 7, 2009, Mission Viejo, Calif.), spent most of his career in aerospace but became famous in the mid-1970s for inventing the TASER, a handheld weapon that fires darts attached to insulated wires to deliver debilitating electric shocks at ranges of up to several metres. Cover’s goal was to devise a nonlethal means of stopping violent acts, such as riots and hijackings. Though the TASER was initially classified as a firearm because the darts were propelled by gunpowder, in 1993 Cover used compressed nitrogen to activate the darts; the modification allowed the public to purchase his invention. The TASER name (a registered trademark) was a modified acronym from the title of one of Cover’s favourite childhood books: Tom Swift and His Electric Rifle.
EXCELLENT QUALITY 100% Solution Dyed Polyester means Sun-DURA® colors are part of the polyester fiber itself, rather than the dye adhering only to the surface of the fibers. 7oz. marine grade polyester that offers superior resistance to harmful UV rays, fading, mildew, tearing and overall wear-and-tear. Our own unique finish provides exceptional water repellency while maintaining breath-ability for the health of the electric jack components.
The RV electric jack cover protects your unit from UV damage and environmental hazards. Universal RV electric jack covers are an excellent solution for protecting the finish and prolonging the original appearance of these systems. Each cover has 1/8″ strong and durable draw rope with a barrel cord lock in the hem for quick easy installation and removal. Recommended for storage only.
From my research I found that your 16-ft Airstream Bambi has an A-frame. I recommend the Husky Brute Electric Trailer jack, part # HT87247. This jack features a 6-inch drop leg and lift of 18 inches so the total travel is 24 inches. This also includes a manual override if needed. This is a bolt-on installation. To keep the jack protected from the elements over prolonged periods of time I recommend part # UF38-944020.
Powered jack features a ball-bearing screw system that reduces noise and wear and operates more efficiently than standard screw systems. Automatic stop prevents damage to gears.
