I spoke to my contact at Lippert Components (LCI) and they informed me that the jack will perform best in cold weather when it is properly lubed and cleaned. To clean the jack I recommend using a brake parts cleaner and spraying down both the drop leg and gears within the head of the unit. Once these two components have been cleaned you will need to acquire some lithium grease like part # L10307 and apply that to the gears on the trailer jack. Once you grease the gears on the unit you...
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.
The Fastway Flip trailer jack foot is an easily installed foot that will give you either a 4" or a 6" extension. It has a unique feature in that it will automatically drop down when you are lowering your jack and it will automatically retract into a stowed position as you are running your jack up. Either extension length fits the standard 2 1/4" tongue jack with a 2" inner tube diameter.

This fits nicely on our travel trailer power jack. We purchased it to stop the sun fading the black jack. Although we purchased and started using this a couple months ago, after days of heavy rain here recently we thought it would be prudent to check under it today. Yes, it is not waterproof BUT it was only damp under there and all the electronics still worked so we were happy. Let's face it, the manufacturers make the jacks to be weatherproof so a bit of water/damp should not hurt them. I do like another reviewer's idea of putting a plastic bag on first and then putting this cover on top though. A great idea!
