In any case you have to verify the "charger" is connected to 120 VAC (Breaker) and supplying 13.5 to 14.5 VDC to charge the batteries.

Besides the USE/STORE switch in USE, there is also a 50 amp DC breaker near the batteries that may be tripped (Red or Yellow flag visible). Pus the flag back in to reset that breaker.
Well I'm assuming that it is both given it use to charge the batteries. Checked the 50 and its is not tripped. Here are pics of my inverter converter.
