Check if there is a breaker for your circuit at the campground's point of connection. It's usually right beside the outlet.

Ya I checked and there is power because fireplace and microwave work just no lights. The battery died in assuming is why no lights but shouldn't it continually charge ?

The next thing to check is the 12 volt fuses. Open the panel on the converter and you should see them.

Do any of the lights come on even for a second? If not, do you have a battery disconnect swtich?

Yes all the lights come on but there dim. Also the fridge is on but as soon as I open the door it starts to make a clicking noise. The light flickers on and off and the check light goes back and forth. The disconnect switch is on and as soon as it's off have no lights period.

Sounds like it may be the converter. If you have a battery charger hook it up to your battery and if your light start working normal probably the converter. I had this problem on a travel trailer I had a couple of years ago and had to change out the converter.

Ok thanks for the help. Found the problem. It was 3 35 amp fuses tht were blown behind the converter. Just so y'all know if it happens to you.
