A converter is what most RV's are equipped with. It converts 120v AC to 12v DC, for use in the unit. The 12v fuses and 120v circuit breakers are normally part of this unit.
Many of us with solar, or other alternate energy sources, also have an inverter, which inverts 12v DC to 120v AC, allowing for the use of off-the-shelf general appliances and other conveniences.
You will also see references to controllers. Controllers control the voltage and amperage from solar panels, and turn it into the most efficient charging voltage for the battery storage. My panels are actually capable of producing 35+/- volts, which would FRY my batteries, if not for the controller making it 13.4 volts at a higher amperage.
So in my case, I have all three- converter (factory installed), inverter, and controller.
If you have the manual from the actual converter (not the general-purpose whole RV manual) you may be able to tell by reading the manual, or by going on-line and doing some research. My previous HTT had a converter that was capable of being "smart", but not until I purchased a $20 plug-in module for it.
BTW - Even when my TT is covered and winterized, I keep the binders with all of the component information in the house, so I can read-up on things, or research things. (like figuring out if a converter is "smart")
