Nothing. They work fine regardless of how they're hooked up.
On the 2000i there is no bonding between ground and "neutral," and as a result the "neutral" and "hot" are interchangeable.
The only way you could possibly run into problems would be if the neutral is bonded to ground in the trailer (which you're not supposed to do and which causes all kinds of problems of its own), then if the parallel wires are backwards, the wrong terminal would be bonded to ground on the duplex outlet on the generator not connected to the trailer. Which, in most cases, doesn't matter anyway.
