2006 Newmar Essex No tank level readings on Monitor

Recommended Posts

The control monitor for the tank levels doesn't read correctly.  The monitor indicates 105 gal on water no mater how much is in it, the gray and black water tanks don't read at all.  I have a 2006 Newmar Essex 4502.  I can't believe that all tank level indicators are bad at the same time.  It reads the same on both monitors, in the cabin and in the bay compartment.  Any suggestions on what to look at would be helpful. Thanks.

Looks like you got a good coach. You may need to first check to see who is the manufacturer of the guages and give them a call to their tech department.

When you  find who made the guages let us know,  someone may have the same issue.

If the tank monitors use sensors inside the tank, the first step would be to confirm that they are clean. Fresh water sensors could have lots of mineral buildup if hard water was used in the tank, and the gray/black tank sensors would have the usual buildup of crud.

TJ Soleburg, Just took the time to read your original post. The one wire that would have the affect you mentioned is a bad ground connection. 

Rich.

The usual in-tank monitor probes are made by Horst,  just look at this picture of them and you quickly realize how and why they get fouled-up so easily. I made my own tank flusher from CPVC pipe, water source was city water @ 100psi, when I manually flushed the black tank I was surprised at how much paper and gunk came out. The  tank sensors also began working-until they foul-up again.
