Battery Disconnect Problem

2012 Fleetwood Discovery 36J
My main battery disconnect (inside the coach) keeps shutting off anytime i'm not hooked to shore power or have the gen. running. It will also shut off if I open the Master battery disconnect (at the batteries) when hooked to shore power. Very unpredictable sometimes stays on for 2 minutes, sometimes 40 minutes.
I've load tested and checked the specific gravity of the battery bank, all connections are clean and tight, i can't find anything getting hot or smelling.
I sure appreciate any help with this problem, I need someone smarter than myself.
Thanks in advance. Greg

If you mean it appears like the battery disconnect switch is getting pushed and causing a disconnected battery then I'd check for shorts in that switch or the wire attached to it.
