Newbie in WA

Well, kind of a newbie.

I grew up RV'ing with my parents in their various campers, finally in a 26' Itasca Class A (often pulling a 4-horse trailer or M/C trailer), and just put a down payment on a 30' Majestic Class C (ex. rental). Now just waiting on their prep on the RV.

I'm looking forward using our new-to-us RV to spend time with my kids (I'm a widower), and towing my car (on a flatbed trailer, hard to tow-dolly a low-clearance sports car) to SCCA Solo events.

Well, we've had it out a couple of times now, and have found and fixed a few issues, still have a couple to track down:
  • Black water tank shows ⅔ full all of the time. Maybe something on the sensor or a short somewhere?
  • Gray water tank shows empty all of the time. Maybe broken wire?
  • Water leak around front vent (after pulling trailer). Seems to be OK now, but we haven't had as much rain lately.
  • Would like a locking gas cap. Suggestions?
  • Toilet seems to fill "on its own" -- maybe the water valve is leaking a bit under "higher" pressure?
  • Hot water heater is REALLY hot water, but it sometimes "shuts off" overnight.

So far we're really enjoying this (I just wish my late wife was here to enjoy it with us). I'm generally getting 8.1 MPG towing my flatbed trailer with my 350Z (additional 6,000 lbs in addition to the RV), and have been pretty impressed with the drivetrain capabilities.

Other than the vent leak (which only showed up after towing for a day, not on the previous trips), the kids have really enjoyed our current trip -- Seattle-to-San Diego-to-Disneyland-to home.

Not unusual for tank sensors to go wonky. The grey water being completely dead is certainly a problem. I think that most of these sensors are a series of pins inserted into the tanks at various levels and when they fluids reach those levels, a current connection is made which feeds your display. Problem is those pins corrode or get caked up and don't work so well.
