Black tank sensors

My black water tank will only read empty. Everything I read about them tanks about them getting gunned up and reading Full all the time. What would my problem be to read Empty all the time?

Same problem. When you move next to go home or another Campground dump about 4 bags of ice down the shoot and while traveling it should shake the trash loose

Are the Miracle probes worth the money?

A bag of ice, 5-10 gallons of water and a spoon of this stuff just before you leave your camp site. Pull in to the dump station just before you park, dump and flush with Lots of Water. Thereafter, use as directed.

The most likely problem is that the ground (bottom) wire is disconnected. Usually you get a reading of too high if the probes are dirty. It is possible that the bottom probe is covered with an insulating material that prevents contact with the water, but most "material" will conduct even better than water.
