SeeLeveL wiring question

I am installing a SeeLeveL tank monitor in my 2021 Arctic Fox 27-5L.

Most of the installation process seems pretty straightforward, but I have a question about wiring. It may be a dumb question, but here goes:

The sensors on the system run a ground wire to the display and to the “system ground.” It seems that all of the 12-volt wiring is grounded to the RV chassis. Is it reasonable to simply connect the ground wire to a Tek screw in the chassis?

I am planning on getting power for the display by tapping into the hot side of a switch on the existing control panel.

I am attaching a bit of wiring diagram from the manufacturers literature to help explain this.

As long as all the components are tied to the same ground point, yes. I.e. don't ground the display to the chassis in one place and then ground the tank sensors to the chassis someplace else.

SL tech support told me that a "common ground point" is necessary to insure proper performance.
