Here's our cover. A trash can like some others mentioned. Cheap and easy.

Call me cheap, but I just use one of those plastic bags from our local Kroger grocery store when we're parked.

That's why I bought a Barker with their 2 year warranty... like Jaycos'

I have the exact same set up as Big John. Only time it's uncovered is while I'm towing it. I use a bungee cord that goes under the tongue and keeps it in place. I also drape my tow vehicle power cord plug up under there so it stays dry. Works great. The trash can also holds my 2X6 pieces of wood for under the stabilizers while I'm towing it to the next adventure.

We cover ours during the off season. Not as much for protection from rain and snow, but more from the wear exposure over time.
We don't worry about water getting in due to driving rain and such as water is driven in and thrown in along with road grime whenever you tow through a rain storm or on slushy roads.

Mine is at a seasonal site, so it's parked all the time. It never moves, so the jack is covered all the time.
