The jack covers on our 2014 Lance 865 had gotten very brittle and I broke one of them when I was washing the camper. After an exhaustive search, I was not able to find any OEM replacement covers for the Atwood jacks. I found someone on Etsy that offered 3d printing services and I was able to have him print/create an entire set of new jack covers for not much more than one OEM replacement cover.

There is a crack in the bottom part of the 3D part. I tried to stretch it around the jack when it was very cold, I am certain if I had warmed up the plastic it would not have split.

Very cool. Mine are original, but so far they are holding on.

Nice!! I just found a guy on Etsy that does stainless work and had him do some custom stainless trim for our range hood. Great resource!

Did you try to cross fit any of the Atwood tongue jack covers?

I did not, but the part numbers were not the same.

Good job. I think I'm going to do the same for my 2004 Lance 815 manual jacks. Want to redesign it so the pin is protected from the weather too.

I'm happy to share the contact information via PM for the person that made mine for me-no affiliation.
