Control panel, no power

Last evening we came home to no hot water. 20 amp fuse for the water pump and control panel was blown. I replaced the fuse, water heater worked, we went to bed. This morning fuse is blown again. Never had problems with this situation previously. Any good ideas? Any most obvious I might be overlooking?
No water heater on propane either, no water pump, tank sensors aren't working, power control system panel not lighting up.

my first thought is voltage as the voltage drops the amperage has to come up to do the same amount of work thus the fuse blows. Start by checking the status of your batteries (not pushing the indicator lights) by actually measuring them this includes the converter also. this is the first steps I would take good luck let the forum know what you find.

Thanks, 'Dog. I'm headed out in a few to do just that!

Was the pump switch on? If so I'd turn it off just to make sure it isn't the pump that's causing the problem.

Many thanks to all and the suggestions and offers. We have a happy ending. The repairman with a little help from me, ran it down to the exterior step light which was also wired into the same fuse. It is all buttoned up, secure, and everything works. Well, the next owner will have to install their own step light.
