My KIB monitor not accurate for fresh water reading

It read 1/3 full when we got home. This is a 90 gallon FW tank. I drained to the last drop using a five gallon bucket.

Fifteen gallons came out. KIB said E for empty. My feeble brain says about thirty gallons should have come out.

This is the KIB K22WH, I think.

Black and Grey tank readings are always off.......

sensors

This is my first reply so I do not have a lot of experience. Everyone on this site has been so helpful to me I feel compelled to return the favor. I purchased an older RV with the same monitor and had the same problem. I took it to camping world and had it replaced and it worked worse. If I had it to do over again I would live without monitors. You can get a feel for all the tank levels over time. I just have a feeling that the sensors in the tank fail and it is prohibitively expensive to replace those. Hope this helped you.

These gauges have sensors mounted on the exterior of tanks, should be a lot better. I have just "lived" with the inaccuracy of mine.
