classic Avion LP tank level sensor

i'v got a 1979 avion, twin vertical aluminum tanks. each has an old school (not OPD) valve with an electronic, single wire level sensor. inside the coach, there is a display panel, with a 5 level readout, full, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4, and empty. i cannot find anything even close to this for updating. i tend to go by the rule of, if it aint broke, but in this case, i CAN get a ticket if i get pulled over... basically, im looking to update the valves, and keep the origionallity of this classic trailer intact... somewhat... if possible... perhaps.

I own a 1986 silver anniversary edition 30ft. Recently had some challenges with the toggle switch on the jack. Joined the Avion facebook group and yahoo group with plenty of knowledge folks. Even called Avion Cayo for help. Good luck. p.s. Im with you if it aint broker, dont fix it....but not if there's a possibility of being pulled over

We own a 1987 Avion 32S. The original Aluminum tanks can be retrofitted with the new OPD valves and recertified. I had this done on mine. The problem is that the new valves will not work with the guages inside. It did not bother me to just disconnect the inside guages. If you want the guages to work, they do sell the new aluminum tanks with the connection for the guages. I believe Vintage Trailer Supply sells them. They pretty expensive though and that is why I opted just to disconnect the interior guages.
