Electric stabilizer jack switches

Has anyone ever put a protective type cover over the stabilizer jack switches? When we picked up our TT the guy who did the walk through with us suggested this to help keep the elements out of the switch? Any thoughts on this? No results on a search.

Never thought of that. I think I will have to look into that!

Any exterior switches should be "wash down" proof. No need to add an additional cover. But, adding a cover wouldn't hurt anything either.

I agree that the switch should be a "wash down" type switch, but that doesn't keep dirt and grime from getting in.

I have a 2011 and have replaced my switch twice ( warranty ). I have looked for a covered switch, with no luck. The one that is on the rv now is sticking, in the on position again.

What is the size needed for our jack switches? Do you know what the part # is for the needed switch cover?

I do not have my TT yet so I can't measure it. Has anyone else ordered any?

wagon52 - do you mean that your stabilizer jack switches are exposed to the elements? Why would any manufacturer do that?

Our stabilizer switches (front and rear) on our Silverback are in an enclosed compartment that also houses the battery. I don't think I would like any electrical switch (s) outside of the RV.
