We've had it since it was brand new, 9 years. Everything has always worked. And were working fine until we lowered the electric stabilizer jacks. The jacks power quit and so did the lights and fridge.

Where would the 12v shut off be located?

Check for a self resetting circuit breaker by the battery.
It may has a red rubber cover.

I have three as shown.
One or more has tripped.

This is the clue that tells what happened. The jacks present a high current draw on the battery. If the battery voltage is low, the jacks should draw more current than normal which, as already pointed out, probably tripped a circuit breaker or blew a master fuse located near the battery.

I'd start at the battery with a voltmeter. you should see 12V or more. Next check the distribution panel where the fuses are. If there's no voltage there, the issue definitely lies between the battery and the distribution panel.

They could also be manual reset. After you check for proper voltage look for the breakers. When you find them, run your finger around the sides of the circuit breaker til you feel a small button (very small & doesn't stick out very far). Press the button and see if everything comes back on.

Lights

Have you tried plugging into your tow vehicle and see if lights come on. I had a similar issue and the converter had went bad, killing batteries. As has been said, check voltage at batteries and go from there.

Sorry that's what I meant.
Manual reset

Inverter would have nothing to do with it.

The jacks are almost always hooked directly to the battery, with a circuit breaker like I've shown, a lot of times internal 12 items including the converter are also on those manual resetting breakers.

If the landing gear quit then I'd suspect that.
