Dual WAN for Failover but Ping Getting Failed

Hello there,

I have settled MikroTik to work with 2 WANs and switch to another on failover. For this I have created script, which pings some IPs every 5 seconds for testing of connection. ISP1 pings and if 2 pings get failed, my script changes IP Route DISTANCE of ISP1 to 2 and respectively ISP2 (IP Route DISTANCE) to 1.

But now problem is that when ISP1 is working and connected, I want to ping ISP2 as well to check its uptime as an backup. When connected to ISP1, I am unable to ping to IP from ISP2 for testing pings.

I anyone can guide me where I am making mistake, it will help me a lot.

Thanks in advance.
