What is everyone using for a jack hitch cover? This one looks like a decent one and has a number of very good reviews. It appears to allow use of the light and see your switches and see your level without removing the cover completely.

Patriot - 

That cover certainly looks cool and has a number of neat features, but, the price reflects that.  I bought this one:

over four years ago and it served me well.  I never take it off since I got used to where the switches are located and I have never needed the light on the leveler's head unit.

Unfortunately, at the end of last season I found that the stitching on the cover was dry rotting and the cover material was getting a bit worn which didn't allow for a simple re-stitch.  Therefore, I'm now on my second one of these.

Nice cover. As Topgun said a little pricey, I think you would have a problem hooking up the safety cables to the cover, Being coiled And having to go around the storage box. A simple cover would work better.

Yes it looks nice - but at about 10 cents - my gallon zip-lock works just fine. Plus, its clear, and no need to remove it for use. But I fully understand - it is not exactly haute couture for the RV style mavens. 

Enjoy the day - remember those who served. Thanks Dads, and youngest son.

From what I hear about electric tongue jacks and how long they last, I think I will hold up on the cover and use that money toward the price of another jack.

I would at least put something over the jack.  We have the one you mentioned above, but our jacks are turned 90 degrees so the safety cables end up to the front and back of the jack vs left and right.  I'd recommend at least getting something that will protect the switches from moisture.  Camco makes an affordable one.   I'd supplement with something to hold and protect the 7 pin connector to keep it from getting water and shorting/coroding.  This husky product looks good.

This one is pretty heavy duty. Just $8.99 on Amazon. I’ve had it on at least a couple of years.

I think I'm going to look for one of those parking meter covers tonight on the Ft. Worth streets when no one is looking. Mine might say, Free Parking, or No Parking on it.
