My guess is that you might have a common ground that is coming loose. The positive side is fused but with a common ground it could explain your problem.

The only way to find it is to try and trace the wires to where it attached to the ground. Start to the circuit closest to you main wiring distribution and work your way out.

You might also check the GFI breaker on your inverter.

Pull the switch from the panel and check the voltage at the actual switch. The switch on our bedroom vanity lights failed about four years or so ago. Pulled the switch and I had the proper voltage at the switch, it just wasn't getting to the load.

I had the same problem. Mine was on a fuse that would reset but the problem was in the fuse box caused by high heat on that 30a line. They wanted $400 for a new fuse box so what I did was to bypass that fuse by cutting back the burned wire and installing a (inline water tight fuse)something that would not come apart and connected it to that line and right to the main power lug, problem fixed.
There were 16 halogen bulbs and the bathroom fan on that line, now they are all LEDs big difference.

It can only be a GFCI problem if the vanity lights are 120VAC powered.
If I'm not mistaken the vanity lights in all Monacos are 12VDC powered.
