Electric help 12V power

Cannot turn on house lights unless plugged in shore power.

When try and run on battery no lights in house including light in fridge.

Battery is good - was tested and hooked up correct.

All fuses are good.

Any ideas?

Is anything 12 volt working? maybe battery disconnect is unplugged/off now allowing juice to flow? Battery would still test good. Are you checking 12 volt fuses or breakers? How big is the camper, a small one with one master switch that is off not allowing anything on?

Check the battery disconnect and ensure it is set to send power to the rig. Yours may have as fuse located just aft of the batter on the frame rail if so check that.

Check for fuse/circuit breaker under frame behind battery.

Follow the big red wire back under the frame. It'll connect with a ring terminal to a circuit breaker, a little tin box with a reset switch on the side.

In your photo it looks like the battery + is going to the circuit breaker. It is only about 1 inch square.. check this area out from your pic

The "little tin box" you're looking for would easily fit inside that double duplex connection box.

Must be the problem. Did you check voltage on output side?
