I'll repeat:  this is a house-made system.  There's no vendor to RMA to.
It seems obvious to me:  RMA is not a diagnostic tool.

The problem is that there are NO DIAGNOSTICS generated when the
system hangs.  There's no panic and nothing in the logs which
indicates any problem.  This is what I indicated from the get go.

I could waste my time posting logs for you to tell me that they don't
point to any problem.  I'd rather skip that step.
