Question 1981 Winnie Warrior gas gauge

This is on a P30 chassis.Alittle bit of irony is on a M/H the gas gauge is sooo small it's hard to read even in the night time with the dash lights on.Well honestly the dash lights are dim and I am not sure if I have some burned out bulbs.But still it is very small.I looked at the dash and there doesn't seem to have a spot for a bigger gas gauge.The gauge doesn't seem to read correctly below a 1/4 of a tank either.Not completely sure about that through.

So to mount a gas gauge somewhere else I would want it lite,not needing to drop the tank to adjust the float.I am disappointed that I can't keep it looking original just with a bigger gauge.

So the question is if anyone who has the same P30 chassis has noticed the same thing and what was their solution??.What aftermarket gauge they used??.

Please and Thank You,

Not sure same problem but our P30 Chevy RV gas guage quit and now I know a lot more about senders. Our tank is removed with all-thread bolts and is now setting on a furniture dolly. Found that the guage needs a 0-90 ohm sender so if you get a larger unit that fits a Chevy and it looks bigger, great. Ford I don't know their spects. I did find a filter on the sender when removed and a pump. A new sender and pump are on the way with a new filter. Wish me luck.

Thank you for your reply.This is a Chevy carb engine and I honestly don't know if it has a in tank pump.I would think it is a line pump to help get the gas to the pump on the SBC engine.It's a long ways away from the mechanical pump on the engine.Surely the sender is in the tank.I guess what I was saying is to be able to replace the gas gauge with a enlarged one that would mate up with the sender that is in the tank.Hopefully I wouldn't have to drop the tank then.It isn't beyond me to fab a dash panel out of diamond plate the would include the current gauges and allow to a spot for a bigger gas gauge.
