thanks for the help but it does not seem to be this.

my proxy config (extract) is minmum 
ProxyPass / balancer://mycluster/
ProxyPassReverse / balancer://mycluster/

<Proxy balancer://mycluster>
    BalancerMember h2://localhost:8081

note that everything is running on the same machine for now. 

In the httpd error_log, I see
[Sat Jun 17 22:26:32.174438 2017] [ssl:info] [pid 77593:tid 140135766828800] [remote] AH01964: Connection to child 0 established (server xxxx:443)

do you talk http: or https: to the backend? h2://mybackend is for the SSL case, for unencrypted calls, use h2c://mybackend.

Maybe that is the problem?
