Solera Converter off??

OK, I did something dumb - went to fuel up and forgot to unplug from shore power Now, I was heading to Florida and discovered no lights, control panel, etc while driving. Hooked up at a campground overnight and of course all then worked - the panel showed fully charged batteries. From the discussion on this original question, I believe the converter is not running. Can someone help me as to where the converter circuit breaker or fuse is located on my 2012 Solera??? Thanks!!

On our 2012 Solera "S" it is in the black plastic fuse/breaker box below the stove. "Finger nail" slots to pop cover. Think it was second, third or fourth breaker from the top. Turn completely off, then back on. Also controls the 110 volt outlet above and behind the driver seat. I check that outlet to see if the breaker has tripped.

My Rockwood TT has a separate breaker for the converter.

Battery Control Center

Thanks to those who replied, but there were no tripped breakers or blown fuses. There is a black panel to left of steps called a "Battery Control Center" where there was a tiny reset button which somehow had been tripped. Flipping it corrected the battery problem!! Hope my mistake helps others

been thinking about doing that boondocker one... but for the stock one, the best way to kill batteries is to think it does it's job right.
