Are you sure that you used the LAN ports here and not the WAN(Internet) port?
One of the routers is plugged into an Ethernet port on my main router and the other router is plugged into an Ethernet port on my second router.
You mention that you use the address range 10.0.0.0, what subnetmask are you using with this address range?
You are probably right. Especially since pings from 10.0.0.3 to 10.0.0.2 are flawless. Do you have a spare (preferably new) Ethernet cable to your disposal?
The problem is that when I try to ping my main router from my third router, 10.0.0.3(3rd router), the first ping will time out, the second ping will go through and the other 2 fail. Sometimes they all fail. I can ping my second router from my third router, 10.0.0.2(2nd router), with no problems. If I try to ping either router from my main router, 10.0.0.1(main router), I also get the same intermittent ping timeouts. I'm guessing there is something wrong with the cable that extends my network past my DHCP server(main router).
If so, you can hook up a laptop or something like that to the first router and ping to the router to make sure it's not the router that is failing. (Highly unlikely, but still something you can rule out)

Have you tried troubleshooting the cable?
