Battery power

Disconnected my shore power and nothing worked. Batteries read 12.5 vdc. Seems good enough to run lights and such. Does it need to be 13.8 vdc? If not, is there a particular fuse I need to check? All breakers are on, so suspecting it is either a fuse issue or the power supply/inverter is not working. Manuals do not seem to have that level of detail in them.

Yes...it says "battery disconnect", so I have that in the "off" position, which I take to mean the disconnect is off so the battery power is on. Correct?

Ignor the word "Disconnect".
Battery. ON. OFF.
