I’ve been keeping an eye on your thread with a certain amount of interest, as I’ve had my distribution board out on a number of occasions (Ducato 244 Hobby) albeit not for the reasons you are faced with, but that’s another story. When you entered your first post my original thought was that you had suffered a dead short to one of the main cables feeding your distribution panel, either from the leisure battery(+) or the vehicle battery(+) as at that time I could see no other reason why all those fuses would blow together at the same time.
However, I’m no expert on these things, and up until now I’ve been interested in reading the following threads which I’m sure you’ve found helpful. Looking at your last photograph of your PCB Distribution panel, and I appreciate that it has been removed from its normal positioning, I couldn’t help thinking that it did appear to be a bit of a “spaghetti junction” of components and just maybe the ideal environment for an electrical short to occur?
I apologise if I’ve missed a point raised by other contributors to your thread, but have you considered the possibilities I’m mentioning here, and of course any fault could always be somewhere away from the PCB’s in the cables leading to them.
Posted in the hope my thoughts may be of some use !!!
