Black and Gray tank fluid level sensors

My 2021 34PA keeps having a problem with the sensors falling off.
The Tanks are above the sewer and water valving in the driverside compartment, you cant see the black and grey water tanks like you can see the fresh water tank, has anyone removed the water valve panel to gain access to the tanks so that the sensors can be properly mounted?
The Dealer ship is just placing two side tape and guessing on the location when they blindly place the sensors, they only lasted for one trip and then fall off again.

Do some research. The three stage sensor system is a poor choice. Cut your loss and install the SeeLevel % system.

Until you have the budget for that mod, clean under the sensors and use the glue recommended by Tiffin Customer Service to replace them.

When I asked Tiffin a couple years ago I was told to use super glue. I did and the sensors are still in place. I didn't remove the panel to place them; I just blindly felt with my hand and reached up behind the panel. First I contorted myself to see behind the panel and with a flashlight saw what needed to be done, cleaned the tank and the back of the sensor, put super glue on the sensor and stuck it up there. Not a job of neat and accurate finesse, but it worked.

I am going to attempt to remove the panel so that I can be more accurate in the placement, thanks for the super glue info.

How does the sea level % system get installed?

I removed the water bay panel to gain access to the grey and black tanks, not an easy job! Only the bottom sensor on both tanks were still glued on.
I did as suggested and super glued all of the sensors on after a cleaning and placed gorilla tape over them for added security. The gorilla tape alone would probably do the job.
If the sensors stay in place I dont see the need to replace them, they basically do the same thing but only 3 readings not a %, Is there a reliability issue with the sensors I have?
