Xanbus Control Panel Fried in lightning

We had a dozen lightning strikes in the last hour (Florida) and now the xanbus control panel will not turn on. The inverter system is installed on our boat. 

I am wondering if the batteries will continue to charge without the control panel being operational.

Thanks so much. Of course it would happen that it is the weekend so I cannot not call Xantrex.

    With lightning, all sorts of weirdness can happen.  That said, my understanding is IF the inverter was not affected, settings would not rely on a functional control panel and would function as previously set.  It's a big "if" though, as lightning may well have affected the inverter as well.
