Inverter dies after 10 seconds?

I've never used the WF-5100 inverter in our 2015 FC 25ft till this week when we started boondocking... I press the remote switch, the fan starts up, digital voltmeter reads ~120 and that last for less than 10 seconds, the fan keeps running but no output. You can repeat the cycle with only a few seconds + or - variation. Is it DOA?

Check all the connections to the batteries. High resistance can give you a shutdown due to low voltage

Are you batteries at full charge? Do you have good tight connections from the inverter to the batteries? IDK about the WFCO but most inverters have a low battery shutoff.
