Electric Tongue Jack - Cover or Not?

So, maybe the title says it all. Do you cover your electric jack head? If so, with what?
Just slapped my forhead (a DOH! moment) when I remembered throwing out a worn out folding chair that had a perfectly good bag that with a little stichery would have been perfect for that. :lightning:

I keep mine covered while in storage.

I use a cover made from a camping bag chair. I cut the top off if it's too long.

Replace when the sun destroys them. I never use the chair bags to store the chairs anyway.

I also keep mine covered. A bit redneck I suppose, I just use a bucket turned upside down.

A 5 gallon orange home depot bucket. It doubles as a stool to open my bunks. It's also great as a stool for my pug's!

So guys.. Here is a little bit of a "blond" question....
What happens when you are travelling in the rain?
I am thinking a bucket wouldn't stay on very well..?
