Plugged into 110, lights still drain the batteries.

We just had our 25 ft. Safari serviced. All checked out fine, including charger, 110v and 12v systems. Our trailer has been plugged into 110v for the past day, as we're getting ready for a weekend trip. My wife was loading up the groceries this evening and the lights were left on for 2 plus hours. When I went out to check on things, I noticed the lights looking a bit dim. The gauge on the wall reads 65%. Hmm... shouldn't this read 100% if it's connected to 110v? As stated, we just picked her up and all checked out ok. What am I missing here?

Your battery disconnect switch is located to the right of your door as you enter. Make sure it is on, red light lit, when you are plugged in to outside power. That way your converter will run and keep your batteries charged.
