Bounder black tank access

I have a 2008 35H Bounder and want to replace black tank sensors but am unable to identify the location as the under carriage is sealed.
Any idea on location before I start cutting panels out?

Thanks in advance!! First time posting.

Welcome to the group. Lots of help here. Extra knowledge is always handy. I had a bounder a few years ago but the location of the black tank escapees me. It was pretty much under the toilet you could also follow the pipe that feeds the 3" dump valve that dumps the the black tank.

I have 2 bathrooms with the under carriage sealed with what appears to be some composite plywood (no visible screws). I am going to pull the panel where the dump and flush plugs are and see if that opens up my view.
Thanks for the response.

May I suggest

Would give up on this task If I were you, even if you manage to get this job done. You are going to get the same readings once finished.

Forget all the sensors and rely on the flush, if it goes down your fine. If it burps up before going down, time to empty tank.

That simple.

After your done dumping add a packet of Oxy kem


And your good to go till the next "burp"

I get about 5 days between "burps"

Been awhile since you posted your question. So what did you end up doing?

Update: 2 days before our trip I filled the black tank above the subject sensor with water and added Unique sensor cleaner.
Dumped the tank after the drive. All good. Great product!!!
