Interior 12V lights stopped working~Help!

I have a '76 international and I just turned on one of the reading lights and all the lights in the entire trailer (inside) immediately stopped working. I've checked fuses, battery is charged, and 110v works fine. Has anyone else had this problem or can give me any advice. I was cleaning it up to put it up for sale so the timing is perfect!! Thanks in advance for any and all help!

Does it work without 110V? Could be the power converter.

It would be good to know if this is an interior light circuit problem or a 12v problem. Do other 12v devices work? Water pump, radio?

My first thought is the Neg fuse. Close to the battery and converter there may be a in-line fuse that is bad. The wire will be black (going and coming to the fuse) and you can not just look at it. As hard as it is to see, and even get to, you have to take it out of the holder and meter it to find out if it is bad. It is either a 50 or 40 amp fuse where the diameter about the size of a cigarette.
