Altho i've now changed out my inverter it used to have a different glitch: the inverter would drop out of standby a couple of minutes after the gen was started. I'd say don't worry about it.

But running the roof air in motion caused the blower rotor to jam in the housing so I don't do that any more.

FWIW, I only turn on the inverter when I need to get 120 volts from the batteries. I just use it when dry camping and I want to run the entertainment center, etc. I don't have the residential fridge, so I don't need it for that. It is rarely turned on when I go down the road. (For one thing I don't need/want the DVR hd running while bouncing down the road.) I often run the generator and the roof air while going down the road with an outside temperature above about 95 or so. Never have had a problem doing so. But then again I never checked the inverter panel while driving down the road for an error code. Never been an error code lingering afterward. Never had a problem with the roof air units, nor the inverter. So it can be done if the stars all align just right.
