Tank level gauges and intruments

This past January I purchased my 3 5th wheel and 5 RV...My new 5th wheel is a Mobile Suite 38RSSB3 and it is equipped with Sea Level Tank Gauges and instruments...None of my previous RVs including my last one which was an Excel limited accurately measured my tank levels...But these Sea Level gauges are spot on and I am amazed with them...

Thanks for the report. I was just on DRV's Full House site looking at their toyhauler line and saw these gauges mentioned. They sound like a great upgrade over the old style that most of us have... Here's a link to anyone interested....

Mine seem to be working well also. Only one that really matters to me is the fresh water tank. Boondocks a few weeks ago and the fresh tank gage seemed to work well.

A mouse chewed up our freshwater hose and while our new one was being delivered (ordered a heated hose off amazon. Saved us $40 over what our campground wanted) we used the freshwater tank. Sure is handy to have a percentage displayed. Makes it easy to get an idea of daily water consumption. Very cool gauges.

While they are much better than the el cheapo sensors, because they work via capacitive coupling thru the sidewall, it is still important to keep the black tank as clean as possible. Also with just a single wire for all the gauges, mine developed a problem and would decode the wrong sensor and I would have to push a button multiple times to read the correct tank.
