and voila! new and usable gauges

The link ten gives me current, voltage and best of all battery time remaining at current usage rate.

the accu-gauge gives me my holding tank levels, and because they're on the outside of the tank, they don't get grunged up.

Joe, would you have a couple of websites where I could read up on your gauges.
I have been looking for an inexpesive gauge or indicator to tell me how much water is in our water tank. I installed a very neat little one on our 2000 gal cistern on our farm but it was $150. Also it has a probe that sits in the cistern so is not really applicable to my situation.
Thanks in advance

the gauges came from ebay, I like the acccu-gauge specifically because the sensors go on the outside of the tank. It went for $100.00 on ebay. They make several different models, depending on how much info you need, and how much you want to spend. Their web site is: Snake river electronics
