I took an old plastic garbage can and put 2 hooks and a tools holder clip in it. I cover tha jack with it and put my chains on the hooks and my plug into the clip. Now every thing is out of the weather. I will try to take a few photo's tomorrow.

I would think the lawn chair bag would work, but you might want to waterproof it as all of mine are quite porous

Is there a manual way to bring the jack up & down in case of failure?

I purchased a vinyl cover from the company that made my jack. It is on except when I am raising or lowering the tongue of the trailer.

I have a manual crank for the UltraFab and I leave the cover on when using it. I can feel the switch through the cover and have not had it off in over 3 years. Might have wasps inside but I don't know and don't want to find out.

Thumbs up water proof cover-up

An old golf bag cover is almost tailor made for this cover up. Combine it with a clear plastic zippererd bag that sheets or something comes in under the golf bag and you are completely waterproof.

Gee I have been using a power jack for over 8 years and NEVER put anything over it... the jack gets switched over when I trade trailers...

I was wondering do you have a picture of the hitch cover you made.
I just got my Jayco and would ne interested in seeing how you made yours.
Much appreciated.
Thanks,
Dave
