I use the bucket when going down the road too... I have a small piece of webbing with a carabiner attached. it stays on the tongue and clip the bucket handle into it

I have 7500 miles since last year doing this and its worked out fine

X2 on the wasps. Spray some bug killer in there for "extended" coverage. I do the tank cover too, just in case. And do not forget to keep the Adolph's meat tenderizer in the first aid kit. Wet sting and rub Adolph's into a paste. Stops pain in about ten seconds. Got to use it two weeks ago when nest was in the electrical hookup cover. Glad I thought to have it.

Used one of the covers that came with my Honda generators. Now, I'm waiting for some britespark to ask me where to get the tiny Honda unit.
At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Most of the electric jacks establish ground between the jack's body and trailer tongue. Mine has star washers between the two, to prolong the inevitable loss of ground connection due to corrosion. If it isn't working, check and see if the light works, that'll tell you if you completely lost power
Barker also sells a cover for their jack that fits the LCI jack that my TT came with.

1 gallon size freezer plastic bag and some plastic tape.
Fits perfect and allows access to the switch.
Also has air gaps at bottom for moisture evaporation.

One note to the OP's question.

IF the camper battery is dead and you don't disconnect it, the TV power wiring may not be able to power the jack because it's supplying a lot of power trying to recharge the battery, so operating the jack while recharging a dead battery will probably blow a fuse in the TV.
