Horst Miracle Probes

I was reading the January issue of Family Motorcoaching today ... in an article entitle "Waste Managment" there was mention of a new type of probe (pg 62) for holding tanks ... Horst Miracle Probes ...

This is the first that I have heard of them ... does anyone have experience upgrading to these probes?

Thanks

I'm sorry but I can't resist...

The name of that product sounds less like an RV accessory and more like a cure for hemorrhoids.

They've been around for about a year, but I haven't seen any comments from anyone who installed them.

"Miracle" may be a bit of an overstatement, but it does appear to be an improved design. Personally, though, if I were going to modify my tank sensors, I'd go for the See Level type, which is an entirely different design that does not rely on sensors inside the tank at all. My coach came with See Level gauges 7 sensor and it is really an excellent system. Not absolutely foolproof, but much, much more reliable than internal sensors.

Horst Mircacle Probes - Get accurate reading on your RV's holding tanks

Couple of videos making claims about effectiveness.

No involvement with this company either as an investor or user just happened to see them while searching for an after market sensor kit.

My 1/3, 2/3/, full OEM gages in my tanks were essentially worthless when they worked. I'm much more satisfied since I replaced them with the SeeLevel system.

SeeLevel Gauges are a great product but we are not comparing apples to apples. The Horst probes may be installed in a few minutes and all for less than a $100. Installation of the SeeLevel system is more involved and the cost is greater.
If I were having problems I would go for the Horst probes.

Here is a discussion about them on another forum.

If the existing tank probes are accessible, either Horst or See Level is an easy install. If not, both can be difficult or even impossible.

So ... the answer seems to be NO ONE on this forum has any experience with this product

I use the shower method. When water shows up in the shower it is time to empty the grey tank.I dump the black then the grey.It can be inconvenient if it happens in the middle of a shower.

I had the problem you folks are talking about until I started using "The Geo Method". The gages were just for guessing but now work quite well. It is basicly detergent and water softner.

I installed them on our motorhome and are very happy with them. It took all of about 20 minutes to install them on both tanks. They work just like they say. No more guessing how much is in the tanks........
