No DC power inside our 425d

Came home from a great camping trip, disconnected the plug-in from TV, but forgot to switch off the 12v on the fridge and, of course, drained the camper battery. Charged the battery over night, and raised and lowered the top with no problem, but now I have no radio or converter light inside, and no little audible tweet that always occurs when the every thing works. Have checked the fuse at the battery and it's good.

Depending on the converter it may have fuses were the dc exits converter in route to battery.
Which requires pulling the dc/ac distribution panel.
What model and make converter do u have?
Did you check the panel ac/dc fuses / circuit breakers?

could you have hooked the battery up backwards?
white is usually always negative on RVs.

Thanks for the help. After several calls to local RV centers and checking the fuses (three times) in the converter, I finally checked the fourth time and found a blown fuse. Replaced it and all is well.
