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 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
If a trailer didn't have a trailer jack, this means of transport would be pretty much useless – unless you are strong enough to lift it by hands or hitch (unhitch) a tow vehicle somehow else. Jacks can be manual and electric. With the help of an electric jack, you can hitch up substantially easier than with the manual unit, since a manual jack requires the application of physical force. Anyway, whatever the trailer jack you have, this part has to be completely workable and sufficiently reliable to prevent troubles during a journey under various conditions.
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!
