I did an update this morning and did a power cycle twice. Hopefully that will do it.

Sometimes they fail and the charger thinks the batteries are very hot, and drop the float voltages.

Unplugged, it defaults to 77į and if it was bad, it will normalize float charging.

Thanks I will try that next.

I went back out and found both saying not charging after a couple of hours. I power cycled everything and unplugged the BTS cord on both. Itís been a couple of hours and still on float.

This morning I found the voltage back down to 12.8. I downloaded the manual for the inverter and found that it may actually be performing as designed. (See page from manual below). It states that it will only float charge for 4 hours and then go to ďFull Charge ModeĒ. After the voltage drops to 12.7 it will then go back to float for 4 hours. So I turned on all the lighting and watched until it hit 12.7 and immediately it started float charging again.
Thanks

Says that setting is for flooded and gel batteries.

Don't you have AGM batteries ?

I also wonder if your charge bridge ( isolation solenoid, BIRD, BIM ), that maintains your chassis battery, is going to work at 12.6 volts. Most only work above 13 volts.

I read it to be Gel/AGM. Iím not sure what is going on with the chassis battery. Yesterday it was over 13 volts.

On our 2018, it's behind a carpeted panel, last basement storage compartment before the compartment that houses the holding tanks, passenger side of the coach.

That said, if you're seeing chassis voltage of 13 you can be pretty certain your BIM (Battery Isolation Manager) is working.
