I think my light indicators for the Water, gray, Dark and propane are out of calabration.
The indicators are set for thirds. Green, yellow, and red. I have filled my propane twice
and both times what I thought was full, turned out to be less. How does one go about calabrating.

Your LPG tank gets only full by 80% may not show full on indicator.

007 Yes! I was aware of the 80% on fill. However, how does this translate to actual
propane in your tanks, when for i.e. the light
is showing yellow or red.

Gypsies2,
When I took my coach in for factory service I had them calibrate all my indicators. So I know they can be calibrated. My propane indicator has never shown more than 2/3 full. I was told by one person filling the tank that he could not fill it more that 80%. So if the indicator is set to read the full capacity of the take it will never indicate full.

It may also be calibration. On my '01 Dip the propane shows full when the tank is filled to 80%. For a propane tank 80% is full. How your fresh, grey and black tanks read is a usually function of where the sensors were mounted in the tanks. Unless you have one of the new systems that weigh the tanks.

PS: You might consider using a signature and putting the year & model of your coach in it. The info makes it easier for the rest of us who might not remember.

Green lights and soft breezes,

Thanks to every one who replied. I have a better understanding on how the light system relates to my propane. Great help thanks.
Roland, somewhat confussed. I thought my coach
info was showing up. Did I miss something in the set up. Maybe I lack a little computer savay. How does one correct this? Thanks again
for all who help,, Drive safe.

Hi Gypsies2

An easy way to get the info added is to click on your name (at the left of the screen), then click on "View Gypsies2 Public Profile", then click "View/Edit Complete Profile". It will bring up your info, which you can then scroll thru and edit as needed.

Hope this helps!
Ron
