Let's recap, lobstah says it could be a tripped gfci. On your coach inverter is hard wired from the breaker box, not plugged into a receptacle. Speed racer says it could be a tripped breaker on the inverter causing no battery charging. Possible, but lights would be dim not all the way off in most circumstances. I didn't know you had it in a shop, but it is possible the techs are not aware of the salesman's switch, or the solenoid it is connected to. Have them check that first thing. Wa8yxm is right, porch light is on chassis battery and probably not related to the interior lights. Another thought on porch light, could be in the step controller. Door switch turns on light under step when porch light is on. Could be a problem with step controller or a ground problem to porch light, picking up the ground only when door switch is activated, all those wires are together under step.

The salesman switch is the main house battery disconnect just inside the door.. So called because Salesmen use it to turn off EVERYTHING when they are done showing a motor home... And of course to turn it back on when showing the MH.

Once it leaves the lot the switch is often left in the "Connected" mode for years on end.

Home is where I park it!
