looking for tank monitor replacement parts

we have a 1989 excella and there is something wrong with the board in the panel behind the buttons for monitoring the levels in the water and waste tanks -- the rest of the monitor works fine (the part that has the range exhaust vent, the light, the water pump switch) -- it's just something bad behind the one side of the panel.

We went to the Airstream service center in Jackson Center, but they didn't have a part to repair it because the monitor is so old -- but they did say that if we could find the part elsewhere, they could repair it. Would anyone out there happen to have or know where to find the right model tank monitor -- even if part of it is broken or banged up -- just for parts? Or does anyone know someone who specializes in finding the parts to fix these old monitors? I hate the thought of having to replace the whole dadgum thing -- when all we need is one little board Thanks!

You don't need a new board.

If I remember correctly, that board has some transistors in it.

Find a electronics repair shop, who can easily ID the defective transistor, and have them replace it.

That will put you back in business, without the need to spend a ton of money.

thanks!

wonderful -- we'll give it a try -- so I would just unscrew the panel, remove the board, and take it with me? Thanks so much!

That's all there is to it.

Somewhere I had the numbers of the transistors that were used, but, I cannot locate it.

Sorry.
