Lots of older trucks were positive ground. Some had 24 volt starters. But that is a different story.

Your TT is Negative ground and I suspect that is why the fuse you found is blown. I hope nothing else is damaged. Your converter may have fuses to protect it so be sure to check the voltage on the battery after you correct the error. Many converters have diodes and fuses designed for that issue.

Take a picture and call the dealer in case there are other items that were damaged.

Almost all British motorcycles were also positive ground. Buyers of early Japanese bikes got a surprise!

.You may wish to check your tow vehicle as well if it was hooked up wrong it may have done damage to the vehicle. Double check your charging system on the camper as well it was their error I would take it back to them.
