Lights not working

I have a 1993 Fleetwood Southwind. When I'm running the generator all lights and outlets worked fine. Ran down to 1/4 tank of gas so the generator shut off. After we refueled and restarted the generator all outlets work but only lights in front half work. What would cause lights in the rear to stop working?? Any help would be greatly appreciated

Your lights need 12vdc power (house batteries or converter). You will likely have fuses at your distribution panel. It's possible the back lights are on a separate fuse.

Your lights should work even if you're not plugged in if your batteries are in good shape.

Here's a pic of a converter. The converter is on the bottom and the fuses for DC are top right.
