Most of these types of gages are very inaccurate. If it has an external sensor, it could be misplaced or loose. If it has an internal probe, it could have stuff built up on it. when it builds up on the probes it can cause the misreadings. Check the tank to see what type you have If external you can check for mounting. If internal, they make degunker you can buy at camping stores, just follow the directions.

Some times, people just fill the tank with liquid and a lot of ice and take it for a joy ride. Hope this helps you.

First off Welcome to the IRV2 family.......And yes the black tank sensors are iffy at best. When I have a full service site, I'll hook up a holding tank flush-out valve and fill it up a few times to help dis-lodge any gunk. Some will add a little liquid Calgon to keep the inside of the tank slippery........I'll do the ice cube thing also.

One other thing if you please. I have a gas furnace in the camper and it fumes so bad that I cant use it. I have tried running it in the driveway for an hour or so to see if I need to burn anything off or something but it just stinks. my eyes water. the alarms dont go off though. any ideas on this?

2007 - - I have used it 8-10 times but have not used the heater much but Like I said I have tried to burn the heater off at home but it does not seem to get better. Im not sure how much it was used before I bought it.

It could be VOCs from the construction materials in the TT that are giving off when you use the heater. Do you have the same problem if you close all doors and windows and sit in it in the heat?

The other possibility is a block in the furnace exhaust. Have you checked to flue and your CO2 alarm, they usually have a manual test button.

Your heater may need to be cleaned and the tuned up. As for the black tank sensors I do the Ice and soap thing and that helps but really the only thing I have found that does the thing is to by a tank cleaning wand and clean the heck out of the tank when you have a full hook up site.
