2002 Diplomat Holding Tank Monitoring System

Can anyone tell me who makes the monitoring panel for a 2002 Diplomat?

Also, does anyone know if it can be calibrated, and where to find a manual that shows how to do it?

Thanks

Not much to calibrate on the unit I have. It uses real basic electronic theory to work. the liquid in the tanks completes the circuit and the led light comes on as a result. A faulty or dirty sensor will not complete the circuit when the liquid touches it making you think it is empty. Here is the unit I have.

You can search the forums for sensor cleaning or replacement, but I would look at replacing the unit and sensors with a newer technology unit. That is what I plan on doing in the future.

Thank Dan, that makes perfect sense. I think for now, I have a pretty good handle on when my tanks levels are based on time and use. I will just let that, and my wife screaming that the sower is backing up, be my guide.

I would "dump" your old display and system and replace it with a SeeLevel Tank Monitoring system.

They use far better sensors mounted to the outside of the tanks and a very user friendly display. You can even use the old wiring to hook it all up.

X2 Easy install once you have access to the existing monitors and wires.

Yep, thanks guys. I have been looking at the SeeLevel system as a back-up plan. I will wait a while as I am chasing more important things for now.
