Thanks for any help you can give me.
If all your lights, ceiling and range fans, furnace, and reefer were off before you connected your battery, then the spark was probably caused by your 12v gas detector. This detector is usually located near the floor (mine is by the entry door), and is always on. Having an appliance on will cause a spark when you hook up your battery. Also, this detector will cause your battery to drain in the off-season if you leave the battery connected to the trailer.
