see the level

After 40 years of never knowing at what level my tanks are cause the little dot sensors fail or fail to read correctly soon after each camper purchase. I put this Seelevel system in in a couple of hours on the new unit. OMG it works and is very accurate down to 4% reading on low level and 100% reading at full level as tested on each tank. No question now when boondocking or just want to know. You use the existing wires form the old dot sensors, mount the little green cards on the side of the tank, mount the reader in the camper where the old tank sensors wires terminate and your off and running in no time.
Rvupgrades.com seem to have the best price with free ship $186.00

I have another brand, but this is a good price for this unit and it does calm the nerves a lot when you really know what is going on with those tanks.

Good to hear you like the product. After nine trailers with failed sensors, we have adjusted to life without them. Many however would like to have, so thanks for posting.

We had them on our old rig and they did work well.

Do they have readouts for multiple tanks?

Hmmm......now this looks like a good idea.


So the sensors go on the outside of the tanks?


And they can monitor your LP tanks as well? Do they just stick on those too?


Has anyone had these long enough to verify they are reliable over the long run?

The one I installed has Fresh,Galley, Gray, Black, LPG. They work very good. I added 40 pound aluminum tanks with electronic gauges so I could read the level of the propane in each tank.

Did you use the same wiring? Montana's seem to have the tanks buried for cold weather, was that a problem?

Does this system mount to each holding tank. If so, does the under belly have to be detached? Hope to get a reply.

You will have to get access to your tanks. The original sensors are so you can mount then reuse some of the wiring.

Here is a video of an installation. It should give you an idea what is needed.

I like the idea of being able to accurately read tank levels. While I've never overflowed one, I think that becomes a matter of time. (Two types of people: Those who have overflowed a gray water tank and those who are bound to right?)

I presume plenty of us have 4 tanks, a water pump controller and 2 water heater controllers and I don't see they have a model to match that functionality.

So the solution is add this panel and install 3 new switches below it?
