Angry SeeLevel Tank Monitor

Since day one, I am lost as why the gauges seem to be incorrect.
I originally had the SeeLevel II gauge (Model 712TT) and this was demonstrated to me to be defective. I sent the gauge in and after almost 2 years Garnett is unable to repair the gauge. I find this to be disgusting.
The replacement was a SeeLevel I (Model 707) and actually it appears that half the gauge appears to be accurate. Left to right the gauges are Fresh/Grey/Black,LPG.
Like I indicate Fresh and Grey appear to function, The gauge goes up and down with the addition and release of water.
The black tank never goes above 3/8 which is right after it has been drained/flush. After that it is on empty.
The LPG has been on 3/4 since it was filled over a year ago.
I know that it is very important to drain and flush the tanks and we believe that we are doing this.
I never see anything on this site about this issue, would appreciate any suggestion.

If the tank walls are too encrusted with ..... stuff the gauge may not work properly. I had some installed a few months ago and the the gray and black are generally way off. They both say the tanks are much fuller than they are. I'm pretty sure that my fresh water gauge is working properly so I just use that to gauge where the gray water is and when the black says it's approaching full I take a flash like and look down the toilet to check it out. All in all I'm pretty underwhelmed with their system. Also on the LPG gauge they recommend that you calibrate it right after you fill the tank. Pull out your instructions and check out how to do it. Good Luck

Thanks on the LPG suggestion. As far flushing the tanks, I have a water meter, I know the capacity and use Happy Camper Extreme on trips to get a really good "swish" Wonder if anyone on the forum has found gauges that are better?

I installed the See Level system on my previous coach and it worked for 8 years flawlessly. Never had an issue.

I did damage the fresh water tank sensor strip on the Allure and got a new one from RVUPGRADES and it has worked just fine. So far the system has worked without a hitch. I did have a problem with the Techma sensors on the BW tank (yellow stayed on even when See Level showed BW tank empty and I had just dumped the tank) but that finally cleared up after using some white vinegar in the tank.

Have you checked the wires going to the sensors? Or, are any of the sensor strips starting to release from the tank side? It is imperative that they are stuck fast to the tank side to be accurate.


I believe See Level folks told me (when I called about the strip I damaged), that the strips over time can start to release and give false readings. Replacement strips are not expensive. RVUPGRADES had a good price on them.
