Which specific model is this, Jim? "3 sensors" could mean three level points on one tank, but I think it is three tanks.

Usually, yes, but at least some of Garnet's products - such as the Model 709-A - SeeLeveL II - have continuous strip sensors: the sensor runs the height of the tank (and can be trimmed shorter if required), and the system determines a continuous level (displayed in % full), not just three switch points.

(The product documentation also mentions propane level - that one is not capacitance-based, it is driven by the resistor-type sensor on the float gauge of a typical built-in motorhome tank)

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
