Yes I have heard that too many campers are in a park if it is not wired good that you can get low voltage. But in my opinion I think it would have effected more then the awning lights.

Do you have a switch to activate them or do you plug them in to an outlet?

Since you are new to Rv'ing, the best investment you can do to protect your Trailer is to buy this. Buy it as soon as you can afford it. It will save your trailer from many electrical issues.

A loaded campground can cause low AC voltage and if low enough can damage the AC compressor. The lights ( including awning lights) are 12V and not impacted by low AC voltage unless battery voltage is low .

You were plugged in on 30amp power, with a switched source to turn lights on?
The lights are most likely run on 12V but if plugged in your inverter would charge battery so that discounts dead battery.

There is no reason your lights should have stopped working due to low park power.
There are only 3 things that could fail, if everything else worked.
Light strip is bad.
Controller is bad.
Remote is bad. (If included.)

The lights may have failed due to a number of reasons that my have been coincidence with the the park filling up. You will need to plug the unit in again and see if the lights work.
Please follow up to see if the lights are still not working when you go out again.
