I have a ys 480 can't say enough great things about the hider smoker, however the paint has been peeling off and now the metal is rusting. I've owned since December 2015 and it has always been stored under my covered porch. Has anyone else had this happen? It's such a quality built smoker, I feel this is a rare problem.

I've had mine since Dec 2015 and have had to fully sand the entire cooker and repaint 2 times (once each season) and have had to sand and touch up areas 10+ times. I love my 640 but I wish the factory would find a better way to paint these units.
