Hooking the battery up reversed will cause all the issues you are reporting. I am sorry to report that you likely have caused a lot of damage.
I suspect the power converter needs the two 40 amps fuses replaced at a minimum.
I also worry about the fridge main board (hope the fuses caught it); the Stereo (most likely fried); the Propane Detector (most likely fried); the furnace main board (hope the fuses caught it in time); and Power converter if the fuses did not blow in time to protect it.
The red wires go to the positive terminal on the battery and the black/white wires go to the frame (ground).
