unless you have LED's, then yes, incandescent lights can use quite a bit of energy. they require HEAT to make light and HEAT uses battery power. not as much as the pump and furnace, though.
an inverter allows you to run 110vAC devices on battery power. not to be confused with a CONverter, which all RV's have to convert 110vAC shore power to 12vDC power and also to recharge the battery.
motorhomes are the only RV's that commonly have inverters, but they are usually options.
if you have an inverter, you can run things like the xbox and tv/dvd on battery power, without running the generator when dry camping.
