Welcome to iRV2

Yes, most do.

Tell us what inverter/charger you have and you will get more specific information.

Or is yours strictly a converter? Again what model?

If you have a standard converter, the two larger green 30 amp fuses off by themselves on the fuse panel (or sometimes on the converter itself) will be blown, as that is their purpose, to protect from reverse current.

Most other stuff should be OK. You will just need to check all appliances that use 12v (fridge, water heater, furnace) and verify their operation.

Did the same thing with my 2004 R-Vision Trail Cruiser. It was dark and the cables got crossed. Blew both 30 Amp fuses. No other damage. Lesson learned.
