National TradeWinds - Monitor Control Panel

We need some help understanding the Monitor Control Panel on our 1999 National Tradewinds. Accoss the bottom it shows LPG, Fresh, Holding & Gray then shows E, 1/3, 2/3 & F and seem to have green, yellow & red lights that diagonally show the levels on these tanks but do not seem to make sense. Is our understand that the ligts are diagonal for the corresponding tanks? and what do the green, yellow & red lights mean? On the right side of the panel it shows Battery on the bottom and then the letters L, F, G & C which we do not understand at all. Any info on how to understand this panel will be appreciated.....

The tank lights indicate tank level. A given tank reads diagonally. The battery reads vertically, C is charged, L is low. F and G are something in between, Lord only knows what they stand for.

Battery, bottom to top. (straight up)
L-Low - Red
F-Fair - Red
G-Good - Yellow
C-Charged - Green

Far left on bottom to right, LPG, Fresh water, Holding tank, Grey water tank. Along the left side, bottom to top....
E-Empty
1/3- 1/3 Full - Red
2/3- 2/3 Full - Yellow
F-Full - Green

You read the level of these tanks from bottom to top in a slight right diagonal direction.

Colors mean the same as traffic signals. Your Battery, LPG, Fresh water will be as accurate as these types of indicators can be. The black and grey tank indicators can be very wrong due to solids, paper, oil and grease building up on the sensors. Many folks have many ways to deal that, so will not get into that one
