Level Lights for your holding & black tank

When i dump out all of the gray and black tank my lights on the gray still show 3/4 full it happens on both sets of gages inside an outside. black goes empty sometime my question is there a fix for correcting them to work properly.
Thanks for all thoughts

You can find lots of tips and tricks to clean internal button sensors. Calgon or happy camper gets good reviews here.
My tape type work well. But I can pretty much predict my gray by fresh water use. About 75-80% in gray.

Probe type are worst/unreliable due to TP/scale sticking to them
Exterior mounted sensors are better

GEO Method helps clean up the tank wall/sensors but they get dirtynext time you use the waste tanks

After a few trips you should get a feel on tank usage
If tank dumps then what the 'gauges' show doesn't matter

I don't even look at themany more...haven't for years

When toilet 'burps' time to dump
When sink/shower starts draining slower time to dump
When Pump goes 'burrrrup' time to add more fresh water

**We only use fresh water tank/pump

The best fix is invest in a SeeLevel 709 system which lets you read tanks in about a 3-4% resolution, cost around $250 or so depending on the variant, more for the bluetooth model, plus installation, I installed mine myself in an afternoon reusing the old 1/3, 2/3, full monitor system wiring for the display panel.

Consistant flow/pressure regardless of where we go
If oump short cycles...indicates Leak
Easy to flip switch off when going to bed/leaving RV-CG
Should leak ocur limited amount of water can flow

*2008 hooked up to City Water...WH Tank hot out fitting broke...water ran all night while sleeping.
Flooded living room/kitchen and 3 CG sites
$6000 in costs/2 weeks repairs and we were FTng
Never again!

we also run off our fresh water tank. when the tank runs dry, we know it's time to dump the tanks. when running off our tank we know we're getting consistent water pressure. ran into one city park in missouri that warned on their website the park water was set at 120 psi. a couple parks in new mexico had 15-20 lbs. of pressure
