Customer Question

I have a yacht with 3196 cat engines. I just replaced the 4d starting batteries. The engines started fine and we drove the boat about 45 miles to a marina. As I was docking the boat my carbon dioxide detector went off in my state room. Now whole yacht has an acid smell and my carbon dioxide alarm keeps going off. I just changed the batteries ?
