Holding tanks & monitor - 87 Coachman

Replaced the old holding tank monitor with a new SeeLevel Monitoring system on my 87 Coachman. I wanted to stay cheep so I went with the basic system fresh,gray,black and propane only. Repaired the broken wires fixed the grounds and installed the new panel and sending units took about 4 hours. The new panel is about 3in shorter than the old and left a large hole to fill, also the old panel had the water pump switch and a battery level indicator so I needed to replace them. Here's the new water pump and battery monitor panel.

Nice Good call on installing an independent water pump switch, there was a catches-fire problem with the integrated switch for the pump on the more sophisticated See-Level panels.

Total cost was about 20 dollars. The wooden panel is a light switch cover drilled out for the meter and used on its side. The red push button energizes the meter so its not on all the time..

I would like to know.. If I have the "Standard" sensors

I assume the epoxy chip is a resistor pack.. ANyone know the values? I need to test one and my meter is telling me things not possible (or so I thought)

Are your tanks reporting full when they're empty and stuff like that?
