When we parked for the winter all of our inside lights worked now nothing works (lights)I'm wondering if my house batteries are down to cause my problem?

Do you have a voltmeter?. A pretty handy product for a motorhome owner...

Sounds like dead batteries. Like George said, you need a decent Digital Voltmeter. A "Must Have" for any Motorhome owner.

Battery is probably dead. You may be able to recharge it, but usually when they have been deep discharged, they won't hold a charge.

Two options for long term storage

A) Leave it plugged into shore power

B) Disconnect both batteries (coach and truck).
