Reversing neutral and hot is not something that just happens it is caused by a wiring error.

Are you sure the tester is showing reversed or could it be showing a missing ground or missing neutral?
Any particular reason you checked the wiring or were you experiencing problems.

A problem with open neutral or ground is a common problem and comes from flexing the power cord breaking the wires inside or rock and roll from bouncing down the road over time can cause open connections.

If your inverter goes to separate outlets then I doubt that is a problem.

The next step in troubleshooting is to use a meter to ohm out what is going on.

I just happened on one of those yellow tester's at Lowes and plugged it in. No particular reason, but what a surprise to see a red led lite up. I had no idea that I had any problem before plugging that tester in. I start trouble shooting tomorrow, beginining with the power cord. The male plug looks like it went thru WWII. Thanks again and I'll keep you posted.
