House Battery at 25%?

I'm hooked up to shore power all the time. The power in the area just went out so I thought I's check my control panel to see what the house batteries power was in case we'd be without power for a long time....only ONE light was lit!! That's only 25% charged. I have a Rockwood 35' TT with 2 house batteries. Shouldn't they be fully charged?

Yes, they should be fully charged if you've been plugged into shore power for several hours. It sounds to me like either your converter, or inverter ( not sure which you have) is not charging your battery or your batteries are "shot".
Have you checked the water in your batteries? Is the water at the proper level?
How old are the batteries? If it were me, the batteries would be the first thing I'd have checked out. If they are good, the converter/inverter may be bad.
