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...
It sounds like the Bulldog A-Frame Jack, part # BD500200 is just what you are looking for. The BD500200 has an outer tube diameter of 2-1/4 inches which matches what you are replacing and this jack has 2 toggle switches. One is used to control the up and down movement of the jack and the other switch turns the LED lights on and off. The mounting plate features mounting holes that allow you to mount it so the controls are at the front of the jack or mount it so that the controls are...
OK, so you have your trailer tongue weight (or a rough idea what it is). What next? If you have a weight distribution hitch that uses spring arms, it's very likely that you will need to raise both the front of the trailer and the rear of your tow vehicle in order to be able to get the spring arms onto their brackets. So not only is the tongue jack lifting the weight of the front of your trailer, it is also picking up the rear of your tow vehicle. 😳
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.
