I was thinking of getting one of those pink flamingos and cutting a hole in the belly so I could stick that on the jack..

For those who use the bucket approach, why do you find it necessary to cover when parked, but not while on the road? Seems to me that road grime and water would be more likely to find it's way into the mechanism when rolling down the highway at 60 mph than when standing still.

I still find it most peculiar that something designed to be outdoors it's entire lifetime wouldn't be more weather resistant than that, regardless of whether you are moving or stationary.

I bought a cover for mine and i leave it on all the time. You can use the switches with it in place.

The light was worthless anyway so not needed.

I did not really need the cover but someone else said they had one so then i needed it!

I use the "bucket" cover for all the previously mentioned reasons. Another benefit is UV protection. On a different trailer, I never had a "weather issue", jack seemed fairly weather tight, but after five years, the plastic cover "just broke". It had turned yellow and brittle and one day the switch just broke out along with a silver dollar sized piece of the cover. Also had our names painted on our bucket (a little cheesy)
