Gauges Fuel and Rear air tank

I have a 2002 Winnebago Journey DL 36' diesel pusher 330 cat.
I have posted before that my fuel gauge reads empty all the time it slowly died coming back from Alabama in April this year. Coach runs fine.
Today I started it for a systems check and the rear air pressure gauge will not move. The front air pressure gauge gets to full air and I hear expello
release. Push in park brake coach moves freely and stops well.
I have checked the fuses I can all are good. Any suggestions?

If able get under the dash and swap the front and back to determine if it's the gauge. On my previous 02 Journey it has a box (VDU) that converts the air pressure to electrical signal to sends it to the gauge instead of running air lines all the way to the front. Mine was in the VDU, but to me yours sounds more like the gauge.

so while I fixed the air gauge I must have knocked out the Voltage gauge, It worked before the air gauge came back. Have dash apart now will work on tomorrow.
Boy I really dislike Kiliwiggles.

What chassis do you have? If it is a Freightliner you may have to replace the gauge wires. The older wires are white. I had a similar problem and replaced all 8 wires with the newer black wires and all problems are solved. Freightliner can tell you the exact part numbers for the wire harness if you give them your chassis number. Total cost was about $75.

Good Luck
