Works well for me, battery scans a bit lower than my volt meter.
It could be beta testing for an across the model range, factory upgrade in the future.
The word is that they are switching all units to the SeeLevel units.
Long over due if you ask me!

Bruce, did you change out your tanks? The factory says I'm not a candidate for the SeeLevel because I have the "old" tanks and they are converting the new units to a new style tank and that is why they have changed electronic systems. Am I getting B.S. From Jackson Center?

All I did was stick the sensors to the side of the tank!
Not sure why they are changing tanks. Maybe to eliminate inconsistencies with puddles in the bottom???
I am simply delighted that the monitor reads the same every time. My installation is very accurate too.When the fresh water says 0 % left the pump cavitates soon after. When the black water says 100% and I look down the toilet he tank is full. Same results every time for six or seven months now.....
I hear that the concern is that the sensors may unstick themselves from the tank at some point. That is easy to deal with in my trailer.
I love the system.....Perhaps a call to SeeLevel is in order?

Question

Bruce,

How does the panel indicate what reading has been selected, do the touch pad buttons light-up? Or push, read & remember.

Bob,
You press the button associated with the tank you want to read and the display indicates % full. It only stays illuminated for a 5 seconds unless you press the button a second time, then you get a 5 minute read. When it is in the 5 minute mode there is an led indicator that illuminates so you know.
I find that after a shower or when I begin to wonder how the tank levels are I simply push the button of the tank I want.
Now I can monitor my propane levels too! I am slowly building the most complex 16' Bambi out there......
Bruce

Thanks for all this information! shortly after I got my moho used, the grey tank readings went off: the empty tank read about half full. The output tank sensors are very accessible on the Class A, and when I pulled the sensor to swap it, it was filled with crud. I think the PO was water-frugal and the grey tank solids just built up. Now the water tank reading is screwing up, but I don't know (yet) where that sensor is. Maybe install a SeeLevel and do the fresh water tank first, then the others as they die...

In the FWIW department, Airstream has switched tank monitoring systems. If one ever breaks, I'll see if I can snap a couple of photos of the part that goes in the tanks. I hope it is a very, very long time before I can provide said photos.

I believe they are using the SeeLevel system I installed. The best part is that the monitor uses sensors that actually stick to the outside of the tank. "No muss no fuss"..... I still hope you have no need to replace one for a long time!

Bruce, I'm renovating our 72Safari and have purchased the same unit. I see that both the pump and heater are powered thru the see level monitor... Do you think the wires are a little undersized?

The manual is very specific about this. You must relay the heater and the pump!!!
You will damage the unit if you try to run current from either device directly through the monitor.

As I have has a few questions about my instalation, I thought I would take this moment to announce that the SeeLevel system I installed just shy of 11 months ago has worked to perfection thus far. No recalibrating, no looking down the toilet, no running out of watet just a nice simple gage panel/system that works. So far that is about 11 times as long as the best run I had with the one installed by Airstream.
