1990 Bigfoot Fresh Water tank sensors

Hi

I replaced all the Sensors in my Fresh Water Tank and I still get a half full reading on the Tank level indicator Panel. Anybody know of a quick fix or should I just replace the Level Indicator Panel?

Thanks

Tom

I have already asked for the same problem on this site, and I was told not to spend energy and money on it, it never works well long enough, if it works ...
I just checked mine and my fresh water tank is properly identified empty, but the other two are completely empty and one identifies me 3/4 and the other Full.
I will follow your story, in case someone would give a good solution ...

So we can send a man to the moon but we can't make a reliable tank sensor system. Oh well.

Accurate gray water, black water, and freshwater sensors, were the bane of my existence when I was a full timer! I have a thought for the better way to do it: why not rig up some kind of scale at the bottom of the tanks, and have them weighed like ddriving a truck onto a scale?

Good Idea Salty Dog. I'm surprised RVs don't just use the same technology used for car gas tanks

Gas generally doesn't have lumps.
