Talking Black Tank Always Reads Empty

It's possible the lowest plastic sensor on the outside of the tank has come loose. It's just stuck on with double sided tape and may be just hanging not sensing anything. The three sensors work in series, so if the bottom one doesn't sense any liquid then it will show empty. The sensors are normally on the passenger side behind the non hinged panel but since you didn't specify your model I wouldn't know for sure.

It would help if you posted your year and model of your MH. Some have different types of sensors.
