Quaoar's inclination is way off. It's inclination is like 90 degrees to the ecliptic. The dev input the values in degrees but orbiter needs it in radians.

Changing the orbital parameters in Quaoar.cfg to

Epoch = 2016.57905544148            ; 
SemiMajorAxis = 6498510480943.6728516 ; meters
Eccentricity = 0.03514886445517053	
Inclination = 0.13939239123080285343          ; rad
LongAscNode = 3.2944381481484192875         ; rad
LongPerihelion = 5.9624463324820631271       ; rad
MeanLongitude = 4.7516734835037981455         ; rad
fixes the problem.

Also for the moon, Quaoar I.cfg

Epoch = 2004.55                 ; J2004.55
SemiMajorAxis = 35000000 ; meters
Eccentricity = 0.002
Inclination = 0.01717404            ; rad
LongAscNode = 3.2951641745          ; rad
LongPerihelion = 2.721404636        ; rad
MeanLongitude = 0.0727802821679        ; rad

And for those purists, Quaoar I is actually named Weywot.
