HELP! Need to repair fuel gauge on 2005 WRV Alpine

Hi, my husband is ill and I need to get some repairs done on the coach. He said there is an article somewhere on this site regarding getting the fuel gauge repaired. I can't take this gauge off of the gas tank and mail it somewhere and wait for it to come back repaired. If I take it to a mechanic, is there a way for me to get this part ahead of time without having to send something in?

Another item that needs repaired/adjusted is the low airbag alarm. My hubby, Marcus told me that, again, there is an article out there that talks about it may just need an adjustment to the airbreak. So, I can't do this but maybe if I had the article I could give it to the mechanic.
I am currently based in Raleigh NC. Any help is appreciated. Can't sell the coach with an alarm sounding and not being able to tell what the fuel level is at...
Thanks, wife in need.

It sounds like you may need a fuel sender. The Seachoice 15421 will work. It’s about $30. A few recent sender failures have manifested in the fuel gauge swinging constant from empty to full. What is your fuel gauge doing?

Order one and in the mean time try to locate a relatable mobile mechanic to install the sender and have a look at the air suspension.

Please confirm that your coach does have air brakes-- a little unusual on Alpines, but WAS an option.

There could be something lost in translation with the term “airbreak”.

She mentioned “air bag alarm” aka: low air suspension. Of course the parking brake is air release, which might not release until the suspension has fully inflated.
