Propane Leak detector

When installing my new one I accidentally did the foolish thing of allowing the wires to touch. It sparked and I am certain it blew a fuse some place and the new one wont work. I looked at my panel and there is no fuse marked for the propane leak detector. Is there an in line fuse in the wall or am I missing something?

It is a 2018 Georgetown 5.

In trailers, LPG detectors typically are wired directly to the battery or hot side of a disconnect switch, with a fuse or breaker near the front of the trailer.

Do you have a house battery disconnect switch? If so, start at the hot side of that switch. It will be a separate wire.

You will get more specific answers if you post this in the Georgetown forum.

What else doesn’t work? Maybe refer or some lights or anything close to the detector?

The propane leak detector in a Georgetown is in an inline fuse holder wired directly to one of the house batteries. There are a couple of those and I think ours is a 5 amp fuse.
