Tank sensor monitor got wet (leaky roof) trying to install a new one

So my old monitor got wet and while the elctric and gas water heater buttons illuminate but not the sensors. Bought a KIB monitor and it has 6 wires but the old one has just 5 I tried plugging the connector from the old one to the new one but no lights. I cant find a wiring diagram for the old one. How do I wire this new one?

Update: Installed new monitor, it just hooked up wire to wire. Problem is the switches (electric and gas water heater and the fresh water pump) all light up but none of the sensors do, battery, black, grey and fresh water just blank looks like no power. Someone please help.

Suspect there's no ground

Check for a ground on one of the wires from the trailer and verify it's connected to the right terminal on the monitor.
