Turn all your lights on, then operate these switches individually. What happens?

I would also guess tank blankets, you will see if they are glued to the bottom of the tanks. They operate from 12v but are very power hungry so don't put them on unless you are on hook up. They will also only come on if the temperature is lower than 8°C so difficult to test till next winter.

Tank blankets have to be the worst idea ever if you can't use them off grid.
