Your jQuery selector is not working because hyphen-minus is actually not valid character to be used in your custom class names. The additional "riTextBox riEnabled" classes does not prevent your selector to work. They are used to apply the default CSS for RadInput Control.
Modify your class to "SearchElement" instead of "Search-Element" and it will work correct.
