Can Replacement Motor for Bulldog Electric 5th Wheel Landing Gear # BD500359 Be Exposed to Rain

Question:

Will this motor withstand exposure to road spray/water if installed in an exterior location? I want to use the BD500161 Landing Gear on an open trailer but am concerned about what might happen to the motor if it gets wet. If I need to enclose the motor, will it overheat from being operated inside an small enclosed space? Thanks.

Landing gear motors like the Replacement Dual Output Motor for Bulldog Electric 5th Wheel Landing Gear # BD500359 that you referenced were designed to withstand rain and snow as they install on the outside of a trailer. You would not need to build a covering for the motor. If you can limit exposure to water it wouldn't hurt but it's not something that will fail the first time it gets rained on.
