Time for a new meter panel for water and power?

My original meter panel seems to be intermittent on properly registering levels in tanks and even battery condition.

I am wondering if this is typical of manufacturers opting for a lower cost unit rather than the more reliable.

Is there an aftermarket meter that people really are enthusiastic about?

Thanks in advance for any insights.

Springsrick, You didn't mention year, make and model so I believe that whomever is going to help you might have a better idea where to start if that info were available.

The internal probes that most manufacturers install in holding tanks are notorious for getting gunk on them and reading inaccurately...doesn't necessarily mean that there's any thing wrong with your meter panel.

The battery condition monitor on those things is pretty much useless...if you want to know the *real* condition of your battery, get a real battery monitor such as a Link10.

Hey Springsrick, this is a link from a past post for a Tank Monitoring system by SeeLevel. I was frustraded with my old system of thirds and researched and found this system. Installed in two hours and the best MOD money spent to date on the Winnie (besides the 32"LCD ) . I found the wiring info on the web and the folks at SeeLevel were amazing to deal with over the phone for the two questions I had. Unlike the old this unit gives you a digital readout on all levels including the outdoor temp.

Good luck.
