Tank monitors replacement

Have a 2004 Hoiliday Rambler Vacationer, what can you do besides replacement of tank sensors to make them read correct? Black water tank is reading totally inaccurate, Can buy new monitoring system for tanks and propane but access to tanks to install ? Also doing a trip back from washinton state to Maine next summer and thought of using Route 2 across upper US any concerns on route 2?

First, Welcome to IRV2!

If your tank is reading full or partially full when empty, chance are its a crud buildup on the walls of the tank or sensor. There are many YouTube videos on cleaning the tank walls. I had the same issue with our Itasca gray tank and it took repeated cleanings with Dawn and fresh water to finally clear it up.

As for US2, we did a lot of it two years ago across New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine and it was just fine. Here's a couple of threads in the Navigation Routes and Roads forum.

that's a common problem we've all dealt with. you'll get advice on how to potentially clean them but we gave up on that years ago. our previous MH had that problem so i just dumped the tanks once a week or on the last day of an extended stay before we hit the road.

if you're going to replace the sensors get the type that are on the outside of the tank. we have those on our current MH and they are much more accurate.
