A 1004 bulb (and the 1141) are both 12 v DC bulbs. With no battery, they are working off your converter/charger. If it doesn't work, check in the 12 v fuse panel next to the 120 v power panel. Usually most interior lights are 12 v with perhaps a couple of 120 v wall sconces. The 120 v lights would be the size and type common to house lighting. In addition, 12 v switches are typically smaller rocker switches while 120 v are like ones in a house.

ut oh dumb question on my part, all those fuses are good I checked those. Could there be an underlying problem, Im not seeing? I did find a broken wire on an outside lite with switch near the outside shower, and hot water heater access. tested them nothing, since it was a corroded mess, I cleaned it up best I could and simply taped the wires to prevent anymore and fix my issue.
But :( that wasn't the problem.

More searching during the day. Maybe I will be a happy camper tom. instead of still stumped camper.

You said "None of the circuit breakers are tripped" Did you VISUALLY inspect them or TACTICALLY check them (Touch them) Sometimes a breaker trips but does not appear tripped, TOUCH usually finds it.

Second, there may be a hidden GFCI somewhere.

Third, Someone already asked the INVERTER question but I'll repeat it, many Inverters have breakers on them you can not easily see.

Finally.. If power to these outlets goes through a slide out, There are a few "Trouble spots"

Under the slide is usually an arm with elbow it carries wires.. That's its job. The 3 pivot points and the two junction boxes (one on each end) are suspects.

I physically checked them none were tripped.
This morning I checked the outside lite 1004 was loose so that's ok seems now the issue is all electric shore power all battery lites are operating.
Been thinking about when this issue started, came up with there is a lamp permanently installed that plugs in under/ in the cabinet checked that outlet seems ok. but the power when out about 5 mins after I shut that lamp off. one more outlet to check at some point today. then stumped again.
I check the slide all seems good under there don't want to remove the under carriage cover at this point.

Have you obtained a non-contact voltage tester (NCVT) yet? That will be a good diagnostic tool for you. Good to have in your toolbox anyway. Under $20 at Home Depot.
