Yes they are. You should find a small black box somewhere in your MH that will have a plastic adjustment tool. If you can't find it don't worry, you can use a small slot screwdriver. Be gentle as you are actually turning the pot for each sensor.

Thanks....... So I could start with a empty tank and add "X" amount of water and adjust to 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4 etc.......Being on completely level ground (of course)

To get at least some kind of reading.... I only see 1/4 and 1/2 sometimes right now...

And I mean sometimes......

The only one that probably will not go pin to pin (E to Full) is the propane. Generally full will be 3/4 and maybe a slight light of full. This is due to the tank being limited to 80%. So that is normal.
For the black tank I would fill it slowly with a hose and visually check the high with the water pressure off and the toilet valve open. Adjust it to full when it is well below the lower flange.

Again thanks so much... My propane has shown FULL all summer (used the MH for 4 weekends and just got back from a 2 week vacation) and I just looked at the gauge on the tank itself and it is showing 3/4... So if anything I will adjust the propane to show 3/4 next time I fill.

Thats GREAT advice about the black tank.... A little extra room on that tank would be very helpful.... And serve as a warning..... To find a tree........ LOL

Thanks again Lee

LeeB, your gray tank will back up into your shower when it becomes full and you can adjust than, just back it off slightly to give you some room in that tank. Your black tank the water should be just below the pipe that drops from toilet into tank, you need to leave some space so it will vent when you empty tank and also not get water kick back at you when you flush. If you have a bend in pipe just look for water at bottom of bend not up into pipe off floor flange. A flashlite will come in handy.
