I created a meta box which has multiple tinyMCE editors. However, now when I go to edit a page and click the fullscreen button on the main editor, it shows the content of the metabox.

When I close it and go back to fullscreen, it shows the correct content.

Anyone know where to begin on fixing this? Thanks!

Showing the code with which you're creating the meta boxes would help. – brasofilo Mar 15 '13 at 12:44

Don't use meta boxes for TinyMCE. It has some kind of conflict with the DOM. Hook your code including wp_editor to edit_page_form action instead:

add_action( 'edit_page_form', 'my_second_editor' );
function my_second_editor() {
    // get and set $content somehow...
    wp_editor( $content, 'mysecondeditor' );

See Notes on wp_editor in the Codex.
