Spartan K2 Computer/Dashboard Warning Errors

We have a 2018 Dutch Star model 4018 "K2" that just turned 24,000 miles. We have been experiencing Computer/Dash Indicator problems for a while now. The Glow Plug indicator refuses to show up often and consequently the engine cranks but will not start. While traveling down the road ALL of the warning Icons on the dash blink and chime. Scary stuff.
Most recently, we had to drive from Freeport, ME to our home in Charlotte, NC with our Emergency Flashers on. Why, because when we start it now the LEFT SIGNAL comes on and will not turn off. Spartan Tech Support could not help us on the road even after disconnecting batteries and pulling fuses.
I figured out that the Emergency Flashers override the Turn Signal Warning bell that just would not go away. That was a LOT of miles with our Emergency Flashers on...I still hear that relay in my sleep!
Our Coach is now in a "Spartan Certified" shop as I type this and they cannot find anything wrong with it? Any ideas or similar experiences?
Electrical Gremlins...are the WORST!

I would call the Spartan factory in Charlotte MI and explain it to them. They call service centers all the time to help find problems.
