Probes

I have a 1998 Fleetwood Bounder 34V on a Ford Chassis. I would like to change out the black water tank sensor probes, but I can't locate access to them. Anyone have this problem before. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!

Some times removing the tank is the only access, for the sensors.
Have you tried the usual cleaning methods ?
Not working at all , irratic?

My newer Winnebago has the sensors glued to the outside of the tank, rather than inside where they can become fouled. I suspect that you could purchase some of them and glue to your tank, remove the wires from the ones inside and reattach to the new sensors and take care of the problem. Although, I suspect the wires would need to go to a gauge that is compatible to the new sensors.(speculation on my part)

If a complete cleaning and flushing of the tanks using the GEO method https://sites.google.com/site/cbruni/ hasn't made the sensors work, perhaps a change to external sensors that never get fouled might be the answer. https://www.tankedge.com/

Here's a good blog on tank sensors: RV Tank Sensors &The GEO Method | Wheeling It

Good luck with it!

Go with a better tank monitor system

The probe system is very crude at best, even when working. Here is my install of the SeeLevel II system, much better.

SeeLevel II in Winne 32V

And the install thread that encourged me to press ahead:

SeaLevel II, Model 709 Tank Monotor System
