No 12 volt power except inverter

Just left a pulled into Walmart and found nothing works from batteries. Luckily the refrigerator works but no de lights . Checked fuses and breaker all seem ok. I have a feeling this ain't good

Have to ask the simple question: Use/store switch in "Use"?

If it was in store, the fridge would not work.
Want to know how I know?

Inverters don't provide 12 VDC power so did you mean the inverter is working and supplying power to your residential fridge?

Generally the inverter is connected directly to the batteries through its own high current breaker. If your USE/STORE switch is in USE then check the 100 or 50 amp DC breaker that supplies the other DC loads. If you reset it and you still have a problem then you have a more complicated problem.
