Unhappy FYI - blown fuse

On a kayak trip last fall to the Washington coast, I picked up my recharged battery and was surprised to find I had no 12v power upon arrival. Discovered the serviceman hooked up the battery to the wrong terminals, blowing the inline fuse. I now carry lots of extra fuses.
Still learning ow to troubleshoot my FRG.

After reading all these posts about batteries being hooked up backward , I marked the position wire to the battery with red tape and the negative wire to the battery with black tape then sprayed both wires with clear spray paint. I then painted the top of the battery post red for positive and black for negative..
