02 Intrigue Lighting question/issue

Hi All,
Ive been enjoying our coach alot !!

I did run into an issue, recently, before leaving to park I was staying at.
The interior lights. Back half( rear lighting circuit, and switches) work as they should. The front half, don't, suddenly. When you hit any one of the switches for front cabin lights, the illuminated switch goes dark, and no light. Kitchen and main overhead lights suddenly decided not to cooperate.
I have looked at all fuses I can find, and all are ringing continuity, and replaced fully. I'm guessing this is an issue from the inverter.

Any ideas ? I did recently exchange the original florescent fixtures with LED's to help with the update and better light. but that was several weeks ago.

Your inverter has nothing to do with the 12vdc lights

If you turn on something and the indicator goes off, I'd suspect a bad ground to that circuit. The extra load causes the ground to open.

Inverters create 120 volts from battery power.

we had similar issue except is was the back half lights that were affected. For us turns out it was the original propane sniffer causing the issue. Replaced propane alarm.
Also if house battery's are going bad all kind of weird things can happen

Most likely a corroded connection at your 12vdc fuse panel or at the switch. Identify in your internal 12vdc fuse panel which fuse powers your affected lights. Those fuses have a small piece of metal exposed on the top which using a 12v test light you can verify power is available on each side of fuse. Turn lights on and again verify power is present. Is so and no lights then possible bad connection at back of fuse block or bad switch, or bad connection at switch. Most likely cause isCorrosion issues at fuse panel, switch, or a junction in between. Just wiggling a wire at fuse or switch may temporarily fix issue. Good luck.
