No tank readout on Silverleaf

Last week began filling fresh water tank for trip, and had no readout on Silverleaf, then noticed no readout for black or grey either. I wasn't sure there was a problem with them, because they were both empty. However, at end of trip, all three still didn't read. The propane gauge has not failed to work ever. I checked the power source in the basement, and the fuse is OK. Close by, is a Silverleaf distribution module with all four tanks printed on it, with corresponding phone jack outlets by each one. Do these have a history of going bad?
Just when I think everything is working, more gremlins pop up. I'm thinking of having the RV tented and sprayed for gremlins.....
Any and all suggestions appreciated.

Check power and ground at the module with a multimeter.

Seeing that you don't get any tank readings, I would rule out all the sensors going bad at once for now. Most likely a bad brain or no power.

Unplug the power from the silverleaf module and plug back. See if that will reset it.

Sometimes the temp probe for the basement can cause erratic behavior. Unplug it from the TM102 module if it isn't already unplugged. That may fix the problem. Also, many have upgraded to the new brass tank sensors. I still have the gray plastic ones and know where to order them in case you wish to do that.

I have resolved this problem by disconnecting the wire coupling from the Siverleaf blackbox located on aft bulkhead in holding tank compartment. Wait a few minutes and it reset itself. Reconnect wiring harness. 06 Apex.
