After dust, dirt or moisture interfered with with my set-up several times I mounted an plastic index-card box, bought from an office supply place for $1.99, on my A frame. Never a problem since:

Great idea! -- Just curious, what are the other items mounted on your trailer tongue, in the photo?

I think it's a Mr. Reactor to feed the flux capacitor!

everything explained in my main thread above.

In the background, the compressor for the LG Artcool split air unit.

In the aluminum box, the Webasto diesel heater. This may be the world's first diesel powered Airstream. See this thread:

I always value these small and yet significant ideas. Thanks for sharing.

You can also use a dummy male connector to hold/store the umbilical connector when not in use. Mount it anywhere that's convenient.

We use a vinyl electric jack cover, so when we aren't towing, the umbilical cord/plug is hung over the top of the jack inside the vinyl jack cover...keeping it out of sight and out of the elements. Like all those boxes, though!
