I've had a GMG Daniel Boone for about 3 years now and love it.  My best advice to you regarding ANY pellet grill is to always keep it covered when you're not using it.  Wet pellets make for a headache!

To be more specific I'd say keep it indoors or under cover of a roof.  I had the factory vinyl cover and even in the garage I had an issue with condensation on the machine under the cover.  Just storing in the garage sans vinyl cover, everthing OK and no condensate.
YES.  honestly in our climate (at least here on wetside) the cover can be a problem as much as a help.  A friend of mine had his covered and did not use for a couple months.  Took the cover off and everything was moldy.  The covers just hold in any and all moisture, then being typically black, the sun hits them and it gets NICE and warm inside.  Best bet if at all possible is to have the grill under some sort of roof for storage when not in use.

Figured I'd bump this topic up instead of making a new one......

I just pulled the trigger on a Pit Boss 700.  Amazon has a good price on them and I've been back and forth on it for about a month.  I don't really NEED a new BBQ but whatever......

Should be here on Friday and I'll give a review over the weekend.

When my traeger wears out I'll get another pellet grill.  The problem with the traeger is that it doesn't get hot enough.  That's fine because I like charcoal anyway, but I'd like a grill that gets hot.

My Traeger is still running strong but I will now replace the fire box with a new stainless steel one, add a new hot rod and a fan not bad for four years of constant use. The heat blanket really makes a difference in cold weather and the meat comes out the way we like it. Smoked bacon, Canadian style bacon, ribs, chicken and rack of lamb to name a few with no fare ups and singed meat.
