I had an intermittent antenna issue. It turned out the coax connectors weren't crimped properly and the shield was touching the center conductor. I replaced and it's been working fine since.

I'm at 10 years now on my trailer. About 3 years ago one of the original Duro tires was damaged. I had a tire store put on a trailmaster because that's all they had. Big mistake, the tread already...

I have the Yamaha ef2400is. It gives a little more power than the Honda 2000 to run AC but is also heavier so it's a bit of a struggle to get in and out of the trailer. The reliability is great.
