A VOM is your friend, Check for voltage from where you have it to where you don't.

Johnny T I have tried that switch and NO light comes on for the HOUSE. Chassis light is on but no house light.

There should be a battery disconnect for the coach batteries. It needs to be switched on.
You may need to check further with a test light or meter as there could be a circuit breaker that has tripped normally located adjacent to the battery disconnect.

If the 12 volt disconnect is off u will have no 12 volts supply even when engine running.He say he has 12V when engine running
