You changed the batteries.
That's the place I would start. There are 2 30/40 amp reverse polarity fuses on the converter. There may be an in-line re-setable fuse near the batteries.

Thank You all for your input. After further investigation, find that the converter is faulty. Have new one ordered via amazon.

I had something similar happen to my 5er a couple months ago. Lights got dimmer and dimmer and dimmer. Everything checked out just fine. Couldn't figure it out. What I failed to do after we returned home from the week-end trip when this happened was .... well.... (do I really have to admit this ... well OK, if it will help you) ... I forgot to flip the breaker on at my RV electric box!

The residential refrigerator was running of the inverter for quite a while, drawing down the battery, making lights go dim after a few hours. DUH!

Check to make sure you flipped the breaker back on at your power pole! It might be just that simple.
