Totally agree a switch should be close to the jacks, but not hot all the time.
I'm going to be installing electric rear jacks on my CC 36CKTS this spring.
There will be a switch near the jacks, but be secured somehow so just anyone walking by cannot operate the jacks.
The reason for doing this comes from an incident at a Wisconsin Dells Campground. The landing gear switch on my 2003 Cardinal was on the left front next to front storage compartment door. This switch was "HOT" all the time. After leaving our campsite and returning sometime later I noticed the front of my 5er was low in the front. While we were gone someone had run our landing gear up. I cured that problem by wiring the switch thru the hook-up light. With the light off the switch was dead.
