Tank Sensors

Anyone out there have the part numbers or supplier for the tank sensors.
I removed mine today, and plan to try and clean them by soaking in a good soap soluation for a few days.
If that dosent work, I need a source to replace them.
Relocated the San-A Con pump also. Why did Monaco ever think to mount it where thy did ?

Concur, mine now lays flat with old plastic barrier gone. Much better access.

These probes are a excellent replacement that will cure the problem.

I would not bother replaceing the probes. I suggest installing a SeeLevel gauge system. www.rvgauge.com

They are not probes they are hydrostatic pressure sensors. They sense the weight of the fluid above them. The worst thing is to let the black tank dry out when in storage. Never push a pick or anything sharp down into the sensor because there is a rubber membrane that you will puncture and then you have to really get a new one.

I reinstalled mine today after carefully cleaning and still get a false reading.
Are the ones from CATCOM compatatable to my alladin system?

Both are giving you a false reading? How long have they been bad. What type of false reading are you getting? The CATCON sensors are the ones used by Aladdin. I have replaced mine with new Catcons and they work just fine.

Propane Sensor

Anyone have any input on the propane tank sensor(s). On my 2002 Diplomat all 4 lights are on no matter what the actual level of propane, caused me to run dry earlier this year. I'm guessing a float type sensor but I'm a little shy about messing around with explosive liquids!

A dip will have the old style sensors, not the fancy ones discussed in this post.
I've never had trouble with a propane sensor.
but I totally second those who have installed seelevel.

Decided on the Horst Mirical Probes replacement for now. Probably go with Sealevel system later someday. Have been lucky on the Propane sensor---so far--no problems with it.
