Electrical issue after storm

We are camped near Rapid City, SD, and while we were out yesterday sightseeing, a nasty hail storm with torrential rain passed thru the camp. When we returned, every interior (and porch light) was on, and we couldn't turn them off. The multiplex control panels do not respond, or provide the appropriate blue backlight when that circuit is on. The breaker panel was making a slight groaning panel, but cycling the breakers had no effect on the sound or the lights.
.
After cycling the shore power, switching back and forth to battery power, and even disconnecting and re-connecting the batteries, now some interior lights stay on and some are off, but none will respond to the switches.

Currently awaiting a return call from a mobile RV repair company. Any thoughts?

Follow up to my original post - there was no reported lightning, or power surges elsewhere in the campground during the storm. All other systems are working properly, ie, a/c, fridge, microwave and outlets.

Sounds to me like water got into the DC system somewhere and is completing the ground portion of the DC circuit controlling your lights. If that’s the case, it will resolve itself once dry, but that wont’t help you find the source of the issue.

I have had it do that on a single switch before, but not the entire coach.
