2005 Classic 34' Water Capacities

It seems that when I dry camp 'boondock' that is, my water capacity levels don't jibe with 54 gallon capacity. Despite frugality it seems to get used up rather quickly.
And when I fill it up it fills quicker than a 54 gals. should.

Nor do the gray & black water capacities seem accurate.

What am I missing & is there a more accurate level sensor than the MicroPulse Monitor that one can purchase?

Thanks for anyone's thoughts/suggestions.

Do you fill the tank slowly until the tank overflows? Maybe you are not filling the tank completely.

I recalibrated the MicroPulse for the fresh water and blank tanks. You can recalibrate the fresh by filling the fresh tank full, then draining a gallon and calibrating the fresh water as full. I am careful to not overfill the fresh water tank or fill the tank too quickly as I have had problems with a leaky fill hose - not on my current AS.
