Lights on, or maybe not

My '05 Journey has another perplexing problem. This time, with the interior lights. Once in a while, I'll go to my RV storage building, unlock the MH and reach in to turn on the lights. And, sometimes, nothing happens. I learned the hard way about the aux battery switch on the instrument panel.
I checked the house and chassis battery voltage on the panel by the bath. Had good chassis voltage, Nothing on the house side.
Plugged into ac. Still nothing.
Today, I unplugged the ac and tried the switch by the door. Lights came on!

Anybody know what gremlin I should look for?

Thanks for your help!

Check the inverter (if you have one) or converter.

When plugged into AC, the DC should be supplied by the converter/inverter while charging the batteries. Unplugged the DC is supplied by the house batteries only.

Typically there is an automatic switch in the converter/inverter.
Some systems may have an external switch instead.
