Stabilizer Switch Water Leak (Warning)

We found water in our front storage compartment today we were able to find the cause. The front stabilizer switch has only foam to stop water from entering the storage bay. I removed the switch, applied dicor (no sag) behind the switch and replaced. Figured we should also check the rear switch which also had signs of water damage.

Don't let this happen to you.

I did both the one front landing gear and the rear stabilizer switches. Bought Menards while at Goshen. These are spring loaded covers are aluminum and seal better than stock Cooper outlet covers. Required from cutting of original switch Bezel and held into the flip cover with hot melt glue. Siliconed sealed the flange to the trailer. One other reason is I can lock these to prevent kids in the neighbourhood from messing with landing gear or jacks.
