Endeavor sending unit problem

Need Help:

2003 Holiday Rambler Endeavor Diesel Model 40DST ENDEAVOR

I'm on vacation, my sending unit for fuel is acting up for the 6th time. It is a Centroid unit and the people have been great helping me. I want to know if there is another type of sensor, like the float type instead of the electronic ones. I am tired of not knowing how much fuel I have. I appreciate the help.

Until you get it working properly, when you fill the tank, reset the trip odometer. ..depending on you tank size, you can go comfortably 500 miles before you need to start thinking about fuel again.

Best investment I made for my coach was installing a Silverleaf monitoring system. I monitors all vitals of the engine and transmission, this list is extensive. Go to the website, download the software for free and see what it can do. You set up your own computer or tablet with a display on whatever you want to monitor.

http://silverleafelectronics.com/?q=node/6

It also has the ability to monitor fuel consumption and is very accurate, probably within 1% based on my experience. You input the volume of your fuel tank and it will track how much used and how much you have left. If you run an AC unit during travel just figure ~1/2 gal per hour useage, in the end it won't make a big difference unless you boondock long periods of time.

You also have a trip monitor for miles, hours, etc. I usually will keep one for each trip and one for the year so I can monitor annual mileage and fuel consumption & mpg.

You can set it up with alarms also for most of the important monitor points. I had done this and last year while driving back home I started to hear an alarm the dash gauges were doing nothing. We pulled over and found that the radiator was leaking badly from something being thrown into it. Saved my bacon.

Is there a problem just installing a new Centroid. I had to do this a couple of years ago and it was not difficult.

I have the Silverleaf system and I just love the tank minder. It is usually accurate to a coulple of gallons for every 50 if I don't use my generator.

I have a ScanguageD in mine I don't even pay attention to the gauge on the dash . If you don't want to go that route and have never used biobor fuel additive. It removes water that causes algae to grow in the tank. Water conducts electric different than diesel thus giving a inaccurate reading. In my option going with a ScanguageD not only does away with the gauge issue. You can monitor other vital information as well. Good luck.

I bought a float type sensor from summit auto supply for about 20-30 dollars works perfect just no low fuel light. I could probably find a park # if you need it

summit part # VDO 226008 42.00 the wiring is easy just don't use the third wire for the low fuel light sensor comes with instruction it took me less than an hour to install its been in for 3 years now never failed. only drawback is no low fuel light and gauge will bounce slightly on rough roads
