Amber light

Know this subject has come up before, I had the amber light on the mast bath toilet, dumped the black tank followed by the gray tank, the light is still amber. Reset the 12 Volt at the entry door for about a minute, still amber. Any ideas?

Thank you

Try flushing black tank with external hose? Maybe something stuck on a sensor?

Just a guess...

My back bath is always amber. Even had the sensors replaced and still amber. My mid bath seems to work fine. So I figure it is now a "feature" of the rear toilet.

Well my light is now red, talked to Thedord and they told me to get tank blaster to clean the sensors, anything better than that?

Thanks

There is a product called tank blaster. They said the sensors are really sensitive. I told them that I was the second owner and the the manufactured date was I 20q3.

The Tank Blaster I have seen is just a long wand on the end of a garden hose. You may have difficulty getting that into the tank if you don't have a drop toilet along with the other. I had our rear bath toilet do that a couple of times and all it took was a good flush with the black tank washout. A coating of gunk can build up on the inner tank walls, especially if the coach sits for a while where it dries out. I would try to get the tank pretty full and let it set for a few days with a little Dawn detergent in the water to soften the gunk, then flush it out with the tank washout.

Suzzanne.
Use this method to backfield the tank. If it has never been done, at 88% add a bottle of Pinesol, fill to 90% and let it sit over night. Then flush the next day as many times as it take for the water to be clear.

The reason for pouring the Pinesol in before the last two gallons is so it will not foam, just mix it to let it work for the night. If your tank has never been flushed using this method, it will take several flusher to clean the tank.

I have use this method after every dump since I leaned about in 14. I have never had a tank sensor problem since.

Well, it did not work, rhe light is red again, when I dumped the black tank, the dump started as usual and it became clear at the end.

I am putting more water in the tank.
