Mystery electrical problem

I have a 2009 Damon Astoria 3776. My wife opened some menthol rub and our Carbon monoxide alarm went off. I pulled the alarm, and disconnected it. As soon as I disconnected it the 2 wires contacted each other and sparked. Since then the CO detector and my tank/water level lights haven't worked. I tried replacing the CO detector today and still nothing. My fuse bank warning lights aren't lit and my circuit breakers have all reset. Any ideas?

Would guess there is a inline fuse some place since some CO dectors are powered directly off the battery. Who knows where the fuse might be.

On my Winne there are a bunch of inline fuses right at the positive battery terminal, Good Luck.

The spark/arc could indicate some high current for a short time. When you're looking for that mystery fuse, you should also look for a wire nut or wire connector that's not quite right. That high current could cause an open somewhere, but it'll most likely be at a connector of some kind. If it's not a mystery fuse.

and then I would invest in battery operated CO2 and smoke detectors.
