3D Printing Success Story

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.
OEM:


3D printed:


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.

Would you mind sharing the contact info you have for the Atwood cover? Mine is destroyed and can't find a replacement. Thanks

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

Could you share that info please, I need a cover also

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

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

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!
