DSDP Black & Grey Tank Dimensions

Does anyone know the dimensions of the black and grey tanks for a 2015 DSDP? I'm getting ready to order some SeeLevel stuff and particularly interested in the height of them.

If you remove the pegboard, they are directly behind

Ya, I'm expecting that will work but I'm wondering if the shorter version will also work. If the shorter one works ti has better resolution.

I was surprised I could get the fresh tank drawings but not the grey and black tanks on the Newmar sites.

Finally got a chance to pull the peg board off. Both the grey and black tank height on the peg board side are 9". In reality, there is about 8.5" of flat surface above the lower, rounded edge. From drawings of the old tank part number it looks like the water bay side is about 11".

That leaves me with about 8.5" of flat, working surface for the SeeLevel sensors. The typical fresh water installation would suggest that I should cut the standard sensor down to 7.5" (5 X 1.5" segments) with it equally spaced .5" from the top and bottom edges. However, since the waste tanks have a trough at the water bay side I wouldn't see the need to have any gap at the bottom of the peg board side.

For the black tank I wish I new how for down the macerator toilet sensor probe drops. I'm going to make a SWAG and suggest it is 1". I will probably mount that sensor 1" below the top edge and that puts the bottom edge right above the tank's curved bottom edge. I think that will be about as perfect as I can get.

For the grey tank I think I will go a higher and use .75" from the top. Since there is some grey space below the peg board lower edge, that seems a reasonable choice.

AHHH...being OCD.

1. Measure it with a micrometer.
2. Mark it with a grease pencil.
3. Cut it with a chain saw.

I used the standard sensors and cut them as needed.
The black and grey read out in 5% increments.
The Fresh tank reads out in 4% (I think) because it has less of the sensor cut off.


I set my sensors closer to the top on the grey and black tanks.
I don't really care if I have 5, 10 or 15% in the tank but I certainly care if I have 90, 95, or 100% in them.
