Xantrex inverter/charger

Model RV2012GS. My display shows "absorption charge" it makes no difference if i'm running on my generater, inverting, or on AC still displays the same. Spent considerable time on phone with technition and all he came up was for me to do a cols reset (disconnect batteries for a while) I did that, everything worked fine for abour 1/2 day and then back to same issue.
Anybody eperienced this? Advice!

When I had an issue with the 2012 I disconnected the positive wire at the inverter to reset. It worked out good and kept the reset. Maybe more of a problem with the inverter than a reset will fix.

Wondering if it could be just the display, because it seems everything else is working

Your display plugs into the inverter and looks like a telephone plug. There is probably at lease two plugs the other should be a temp sensor. Try disconnecting and reconnecting and see what happens.

As the charger changes rates the voltage at the battery will also change. Your manual should tell you what the three stages of voltage should be.
