What are the things which are not working?  If there's a problem with the converter, all of the 12 Volt DC items will not work. You said only a couple. We need more information.
Try starting at the battery and work towards the converter. The converter charges the battery.

RVs come with one of two types of converters.. times several types.. One type is integrated into the power distribution panel.  In thi stype both 120 volt Circuit breakers and 12 volt fuses or breakers share a common cover.. WFCO and Parallex are two common makes in  modern RV's Though other comnpanies make them as well including Progressive Dynamics

THe other is a stand alone converter.. and again Several companies make them.  IN this type the fuses and breakers often have different "Doors" or covers (Different panels)

If you have an intergrated the converter is behind the fuse panel and most likely the fuses are the ones on the right end of the panel
