Been having some issues lately with my AC88U just crashing or having the wireless restart.

I had a complete lock up this morning where I had to power cycle the router for it to come back online.
The one thing that I'm wondering may be causing the issue is that I am forcing my phone (OnePlus 8 Pro) to stay on the 2.4Ghz band as it's having major issues with the 5Ghz. From looking at the logs I see the mac of the phone in the error so I wonder if related.

This doesn't happen very often and more so in the morning when in close proximity to the router (ie when it should be on the 5Ghz band) and when using the phone extensively.
I've attached the log file with the dump errors.

If anyone is able to share some light that would be great.

Maybe some ambiguous config settings are causing the kernel trap? Have you done any firmware updates and/or configuration changes lately?

I'm honestly at a loss here :(
Cheer up, your router is fully functional, no reason to be at a loss :)
Tweaking config settings a lot may sometimes result in weird behavior up to kernel panics. I may recommend nvram reset and setting up the router manually from ground up again. Take a look at this post: http://www.snbforums.com/threads/rt-ac86u-random-crash.72031/
I have two AC86U's which I both recovered from kernel panics and boot loops using the method described in the recommened post. In step (4) unplug not only the power cord but any cables connected to the router (I mean WAN and LAN cables if any, USB dongles, unplug everything).
Unfortunately, there's a slight chance that holding WPS+power button at boot works differently for AC88U unlike for AC86U. I hope it's the same.
Anyways, since you have access to console you will see what WPS+power at boot means for your router. For AC86U the console output is this
