Sos!

Is anyone available and willing to video chat us tomorrow to help look at our electrical system with us to see why our inverter keeps shutting down and the voltage is dropping? We need help asap please!

This may be a silly question ... how are you keeping the batteries charged?

so much more info needed, but batteries running low is a good start, wiring being too small from the battery to the inverter is next (if it's a new system).

do you have a volt meter that you can measure things with?

If so measure across the input terminals of the inverter and also at the batteries themselves when it's shutting down. If you see a big difference between the two locations it's the wires, and if you're seeing much less than 11.8v (for a 12v system) at the batteries themselves you're likely just killing your batteries.
