What is the postion of the Use/Store switch? How long has it been "off the grid". What is a voltmeter reading of the battery voltage at a battery? Or at one of the 12 volt sockets.

1978 is a while back. Has somebody installed a full battery disconnect switch at some time in the past? If so, what position is it in?
