We highly recommend getting yourself an electric trailer jack. Marshall has always had one on his Lance, and Kelly just recently got our #1 recommended Husky electric jack after almost three years living with a manual jack, and she couldn't be happier. For Kelly, it was one of those "Why didn't I do this a long time ago" reactions. Oh well, nothing like living in the present and not bitching a fit every time you have to hook up! No more worries about Kelly's back going out because of her jack. Her back is jacked, but her back won't go out due to a jack. Something like that.

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.

Mr. Cover named his invention as a tribute to another inspiration, the Tom Swift science fiction novels he read as a child, one of which was “Tom Swift and His Electric Rifle.” He created an acronym from “Thomas Swift Electric Rifle,” adding the “A,” he explained to The Washington Post in 1976, “because we got tired of answering the phone ‘T.S.E.R.’ ”
