Default Inverter blown?

Charging my 14 CC 48volt, lithium via 110 plug on Rv which was powered by my generator. Wife had the water heater on, micorwave, ac of course in addition to golf cart charger, so surprise breaker tripped on generator. Unplugged cart and charged normally once back home. Now none of my accessories work wich are run through the inverter. Golf cart runs/charges just fine but no accessories. Checked all fuses nothing blown, uplugged saddle from inverter to fuse block and got the initial "pop" as your supposed to but no lights, blinker, horn?

Check for 12 volts coming out of your inverter.

Just uplugged fuse, turn key on and fuse block did not indicate missing or blown fuse (little red light). The inverter is shot, not sure how to check continuity through inverter? Do I put on tester on positive from busbar to inverter and then to neg. on fuse block?

Getting nothing pos. feed to fuse block and wt. on fuseblock. 30amp inverter supposedly a decent one? Inverter is hooked up to key switch on cart and it was off during charging, could that trip of still reached inverter?

It's hard to say. I have had inductive loads, but not resistive loads, affected by low voltage coming out of generators. It doesn't take much to blow a voltage converter rectifier though.

If you have 48 volts going in with the key switch on, and nothing coming out, it is defective.

Thanks. Checking if there is a warranty on reducer/converter now...bought in Jan. 22. It was $65, the blue one you see everywhere that everyone slaps their label on.
BTW, 30 amp fuse(yellow wire) on output was not blown?
