Tank Level Sensor - Just Learned Something
I've occasionally gotten worried when boondocking and my fresh water level indicator has gotten down to the "red" LED level. I "assumed" that I was just about out of water ... but how close?
I just learned something ... was putting some water into the fresh water tank, not with a hydrant and hose (no running water in the barn where my AS lives when not traveling) but with a jug. As I started the water running into the tank, I went inside and for no particular reason, touched the "display levels" button on the gauge panel. It did not light up at all ... and I didn't pay much attention to this.
Went back outside to see how the water transfer was doing, and about six gallons had run into the tank. My "mental lighbulb" went off and I ran back inside and again pressed the "display levels" button, and voila! - now the red light for the fresh water tank was on!
So: I learned for the first time that once the tank is drained down to the "red" level, if I keep on using water, at about six gallons remaining (if the sensor stays aligned, etc.), the red sensor level light WILL GO OUT and there will be NO LIGHTS displayed. I felt pretty dumb about this until I reviewed my manual, and it says nothing about this.
Learn something new every day. Some of it is useful, some not.
