The one with the fuse should be the positive. And typically the ground wires are black.

Default look for sticker

Or on the side of the A frame, there should be a sticker that tells you what color cable corresponds to positive or negative.

Default Positive / negative

The black wire has the inline fuse, so does that mean it is the positive ?

Then the white would be ground.

As you're looking down at the battery (if you're facing the camper), on the left side (not the top) of the A frame there should be a small white sticker. It doesn’t jump out at you, but it's there. I wish that the cables were clearly marked myself…

Well normally in an automotive 12V system the the positive is fused to protect the whatever is 'downstream'. And normally grounds are black or brown. I have to admit I'm new to trailers so there could be differences.
