R-Pod Electric Jack Lock/Cover

I am wondering if there is any type of jack stand locking cover that might be available to keep wondering hands away from the controls on the electric jackstand? Does anyone know of such a locking cover? I've seen simply covers that help shield/protect from the elements, but not an actual locking type cover, maybe there is no such thing.
Thanks for any help!

Have you experienced folks messing with your electric tongue jack? Myself I have mine covered to protect it from sun, but see no need to lock it up.

No I haven't, just took delivery last week, but I just can't shake the fact that someone who might be curious might think that would be fun to lower or raise the trailer since it is so easy to do.

You may be trying to find a solution for a problem that doesn't exist. With that said I have not seen a locking cover for a tongue jack.

Never had this happen, not sure I would worry about it. I have had pranksters pull ebrake connections, because they can't leave well enough alone.

Thanks all! I'll just get a cover for it and that should at least keep it a bit safer.

In another thread, a user reported someone turning on his R-Pod's tongue jack light. So someone messing with the motor switch is not out of the realm of possibility.

Me? I just turn off the battery cutoff switch. Punks tend to lack the IQ to solve such a two-step problem.

You could also mount a battery switch in a hidden area (maybe below the LP tanks) and just shut off power to the jack.

Just use a large plastic bag or pillow case over it and several zip ties
