Are your trailer batteries in good working order? With most 12 volt DC converters the batteries work as a filter to smooth off the rectified AC coming from any source, gen or land AC. If the batteries are charged and in good shape then you should see very little to no flicker unless an item is turned on/off i.e. water pump.
