I would first recommend to check to be sure you have good grounds for the dash cluster. If they (lights) are on and the systems are working properly, it sounds like a feedback of 12vdc. Good luck and keep us posted.

Try pulling the probe in the coolant tank and use some fine sandpaper to clean it off. Reinstall and see if that did it. A known problem in older units. Can't help on the fuel problem. Also join the Monacoers group on Yahoo groups. They have a real wealth of info on older units.
Good luck and safe travels!

MODS. Can you move this to the Monaco Owners Area? I'm not the sharpest on these dash issues. Thx


One thing at a time and for now I'm going to assume you are neither low on coolant or low on fuel, correct?

Is this a one wire or two wire coolant sensor? Do you have a Volvo style surge tank? Is it cylinder shaped or is it rectangular shaped? The one wire turns on with the absence of ground. Check and clean the chassis/block ground near the left frame rail by the engine, too.

What does the fuel gauge show, empty or full or somewhere between? I believe the low fuel light works off the gauge, so if the gauge shows empty then the light goes on even if the tank is full. The senders connections can corrode and give bad info. Do you have a mid door MH or front door? The fuel tank can be behind a latch less door or next to the propane tank depending on the model.

The senders can fail in both problems but lets chase connections first.

Nope coolant is perfect and the fuel issue we always stop to top it off when the gauge reads half tank but the low fuel light is always on. As to the coolant its a cylinder shaped probe with 1 wire hook up.

Okay. The fuel low light is turned on by the sending unit, rather than the gauge. you will have to find the sending unit on top of the tank and clean the connections. Should be a blue wire. Here is how to calibrate the sender.

You have the Volvo style surge tank. You must completely remove the sender and buff it with a scotch brite. I use a dish sponge with the green scratchy stuff on one side. It won't be enough to pull part of it out of the tank. The light is turned on by a lack of ground. Make sure every connection is good. Buff the screw on top and the connector.
