The signal wires need to be tied together as the system is a closed loop network. Just like multiplex wiring (Firefly etc) the address of the sensor determines which one is checked and all the signals travel over the same 2 wires and that is why we tie all the old signal wires together to be common.

See Level uses the cut tabs to set the network address.


Paul - can you confirm everything is still working well? I am getting ready to install on my RV and they have all the warnings about keeping the sensors 2" away from any metal. There are the support brackets, the metal door, etc. that are all very close to the sensors. No issues at all for you?

Did you try and calibrate it so that when it starts measuring, its accurate taking into account the bottom part of the tank? On my tank there is a larger part at the top that is about 60 gallons and a lower section that is about 15 gallons. The way you have the sensor mounted it wouldn't be measuring any of the lower tank. The 3 position default sensors do take it into consideration as the 1/3 sensor is only 2" up on the larger top part of the tank. Then the 2/3 and full are 6" up from the 1/3 sensor.

You are correct that tje lower few inches do not get measured. I was and am concerned that the full reading be correct. You can use two shorter strips on each tank if empty is imporyant to you.

As far as satisfied, absolutely yes. I am now in Dawspn Cteek BC on my way to Alaska and everything is working perfectly. Have been on the road for 3 weeks and always lnow my tank situation.

BTW, the theater seats and RF Mogul are also working as planned.

I will only be cjecking in sporadically until i return in Sept. Good luck with your install.

I concur with Paul... We spent a few days dry camping at a race track last weekend and my tanks didn't start to read until they had around 15 gallons in them.... Still much better than before

I love resurrecting zombie threads…

I searched but haven't found any new threads here or google. I saw that the new 2021's were going to be coming with seelevel from the factory so maybe Firefly will support it now? Anyone pursed this yet ?

TIA

Model year 2022 Classics (beginning production in April 2021) will come with TruTank sensors, which are not the same as SeeLevel, but should be much better than the old style. TruTank is already integrated with Firefly, and I suspect (but have no proof) that this is the reason Firefly has been reluctant to integrate with SeeLevel - they knew their own solution was in the works. I believe Dynamax has used TruTank on some of their models for a little while now. I don't think TruTank sensors can be retrofit to older tanks (unlike SeeLevel), but Firefly would know for sure.
