I purchased mine through AdventureRV.net but here are several links to the same basic cover as posted above.

You might want to look at this link on Ebay, price is $9.95 plus $3.95 shipping.

even my 2010 airstream had the same jack, the problem is the plastic gear, if you do not wait until gear stops moving before reversing the jack direction, the gear strips.

That's right. I've had the back wheels of my truck almost off the ground when attaching the bars on uneven terrain. Raising the back of the truck is the only way to get the bars high enough to slide onto the flanges of the trailer.

Every time this thread shows up I get a gut punch reaction. IF this ever happened to us I'd take it straight to the dealer's to see if there's frame/structural damage, keeping all my fingers and toes cross while they inspected it.

Scarey stuff!

you should be lifting the tongue weight off the truck, but not lifting the truck itself, although at 3500 capacity it shouldn't matter.

In all honesty, I'm not going to lose sleep over it. Ours came straight from the factory into our possession. Not been rained in much, and I' e been the only one using it. It's covered out of the weather. I'll keep a couple of jack stands handy, and enjoy my new trailer.
