If you left water in the heater, you are most likely OK. If you drained the heater, or perhaps opened the low point drains (usually though this won't drain the heater out), you might have ruined it if you hooked it up to 120 volt AC.
EDIT: As davel1971 said, if you haven't connected to a form of 120 volt shore power since getting home, it's not powered anyway...so you're good to go
