The fuse is where?

If the battery was charged and the fuse was between the battery and the converter, the lights should have come on from battery power. Hopefully the fuse is between the battery and everything else, including the fuse/distribution center. If not, you may still have a problem.

Assuming all is really OK, congratulations! As I have said before in similar situations myself, I'd rather be lucky than good, anytime.

I am going to say, and this is an uneducated guess that the fuse is between the battery and everything else, converter and fuses.

dcorona, the refrigerator requires the same amount of heat to operate, whether it comes from propane, a 110v heater or a 12v heater. But if it is running on 12v the converter will always be in charge mode due to the load. It never will drop to the maintain level and so it will cook the battery just like an old "non-smart" charger. If the refrigerator is set to 110v whenever it is available, the battery saving function of the charger can work. If the refrig does not cool well on 110v, fix that.
