Default Reversed Polarity

Got back from a trip. Found out my marina dock was damaged in high winds. Water, electric lost. When it got fixed my panel reads reversed polarity when any breaker besides the main is turned on. Also arrived to dead batteries. Im thinking my battery charger doesnt work with reversed polarity. Everything else seems to. Any help out there ? Wheres the best place to switch polarity? The pedestal ? Bob C

Yes the marina was the only change they reversed the hot and neutral wire on the dock.

Do not rewire your boat for their mistake plus it will be wrong if you go to another dock.

To be honest I do not know. Guess it depends on the charger design.

This is a question better directed at the Tech Support team for the Charger manufacturer. I would venture that if it worked when there wasn't a reverse polarity situation and now it doesn't work, then "Yes, the charger does not like a reversed polarity condition".
