No, but there is a circuit breaker in the AC panel.
Mine is labeled "GFI-CONV"

If your battery will not charge; it may be dead.
There is a safety mechanisim in the converter to prevent frying your converter if you hook it up to a bad battery. The battery MUST have voltage to allow it to charge with the converter.

1) Remove the battery from the camper
2) REMEMBER which terminal goes where. You can destroy the converter if you hook your battery up backwards.
3) Hook the battery up to a good 4 stage charger - the kind that has a desulphation voltage phase.
4) once the battery is charged; but it back in and everything should work fine

5) IF the battery will not charge now:

It could be a bad (or popped) current limiter located either under the pin box or under the tongue frame. The wire terminals could also be corroded there since they are in the elements and just covered by a red rubber cap. There is a small black reset button on the side in the photo.

The converter itself could be bad and the manual for the most common one is attached. The last page has the troubleshooting guide.

do the interior lights and stereo work when hooked up to 110? If they do then it is not your converter ...but a blown fuse just infront of the the positive post of the battery .. check under the hitch area, or the battery box itself should find an inline fuse.

If the converter is bad and its a wfco do not replace it with another wfco.
Progressive dynamics would be a better purchase.

Check the 40 amp fuse, should be in a red weather proof holder just behind the battery box.

There's also a 20 amp polarity reversal protection fuse on the fuse panel inside the camper on the converter. I believe it's the bottom fuse. Check that one as well. If you have your battery cables hooked up backwards it will kill that fuse to prevent damage to the converter.

My guess is your battery is OK. Let us know what you find out.
