Are you saying that some of your 12 volt lights are still working? Odds are it is a fuse. Dont overlook the large main fuses on your inverter either. Perhaps your batteries are low because the inverter is not working either.

Fuses

Hey Gunny,

It could have been corrosion in the fuse clips as well. There is a product called Deoxit that is a spray that removes the corossion and applies a protective film to the contacts and fuse. I also use it on the 7 way connector and light bulb outlets. I use 5% CAIG DEOXIT DN5 5.5 OZ CAN SPRAY available here http://mcm.newark.com/NewarkWebComme...0&QText=deoxit also www.newark.com carries it as well. It is a tad pricey but it really works.
