Got to Quartzsite for the Gathering Last Saturday and having problems

just as i got here at Q and pulled off into the Boondocking area i got this
ABS SYSTEM FAILURE then got out on the street and back in again and same think. seems to have something to do with the Gravel as it dont do it in the street.

Next when Im boondocking and on Inverter my Refrer and Microwave keeps going off them back on sometimes once every few min then every few hours
all is good on the Gen

It tried resetting every thing, house power, both inverters, main breakers, and nothing seems to cure it only when on inverters.

my first trip here in my new coach and disappointed im having problems

But looking forward to meeting everyone at the Gathering
and place is crowded already a week ahead of time. surprising.

Well Im off to La Mesa Rv for the free Pancake breakfast every day

Not real sure why the Chassis batteries are loosing voltage. Maybe something I am missing. What is the time between pictures?

When the micro and refrig are shutting down is the inverter also shutting down at the same time? Are both the refrig and micro on the same inverter?

My CC has a tag, if I lift the tag and use the brakes it skids the tag and gives me an ABS error that clears itself shortly afterwards. I don't worry about it now.

I am not familiar with this system. Can someone explain to me why in the first picture on the AC side is is showing amps of 0 & 1 but on the DC side it is showing invertor 1 @ 117 amps & 15 amps on invertor 2

The second picture looks about right since 1 amp at 121V equals 10 amps at 12V with some lose from Invertor and maybe other items that run on 12V

Well i had the Tag dump set to off the first time but didn't think i braked the second or third time it happened then i moved it to Auto cant remember if it happened after that but i think it did. i was hoping that was the issue and it happened again so i must have happened after i set it to auto. I'll make sure im moving it Friday when i move to another location. Thank you for the input.

Ron,

Both charger buttons are grayed out, so the chargers are off. Is that on purpose? Also, as Don said on the other thread set your search watts to zero.

the time is 2Hrs and The Chassis Batts are new dealer installed new a month ago.
The Refer issue was solved seems Don said check the search watts and set to zero and it wasn't. i did it and all in good with that.

I have an idea you maybe on to something. This only happens when i get on to gravel and turning. i'm not sure where this is suppose to be this is my first coach with a Tag. it was set to Off and i changed it to Auto now as shown.
i tried going very slow coming in, actually ridicules slow here on this gravel area and turning very slowly and i didn't set it off.
Not to say i was going fast the other times, maybe the first time. I turned normal on the a gravel road and set if off when i hit the gravel. Not sure where this Tag setting is suppose to be it was on off now its on auto. This doesn't seem normal to be setting the ABS off under normal conditions.

I was wondering what Search watts was so did a google search. Based on reading the manual. The inverter uses power @ 12V to run even if there are no items needing power. With any number above 0 the inverter will shut down thus saving power if the power being used is less then the search watts. So say the refrig shuts down, and everything on that inverter is less then 5 watts the inverter will shut down and go to standby mode thus using very little power. Once the inverter sees the demand greater then the search watts it will then start back up.
