Most likely your guage problem is in the vdc and not the gauge. Please do not try to wire an aftermarket gauge to the serial wiring going to the fuel gauge. You can swap any gauge to the fuel gauge location to see if your gauge is defective as the other gauge plugged into the fuel gauge plug will show fuel level. If not try wrapping the vdc with a screwdriver handle while someone watches the gauge. If it wiggles or moves you need the vdc.
You said the gauge "wiggles" when you turn on the ignition and this is normal as the light panel computer and the vdc and gauges "sync". Pm me if you need more help
Hey Stink, Thanks for the very good information. I will check the VDC. First I have to find it. I see where you say it is so I will start there. I am going away for 3 days in the toad but when I get back I will look into this VDC thing. Thnaks. Dave Packard

No I did not, have been too busy with many other things. I will have the service folks deal with the problem when I get home. Thanks for asking Stink.

Thanks for the update Dave!


I have an air pressure guage that's starting to get flakey on me.

If your newer coach still uses the vdc you will find two air lines going to the vdc. The air lines go to pressure transducers that feed the air guages. The older vdc's had solder problems on the curcuit board to connecter joints especially the pressure transducers. If your handy with a soldering iron you might fix your air guage problem.
