Tank Level Indicators -2005 Classic
We have a 2005 Classic (purchased it in the spring of 2005), which we have lived in a total of 6-7 weeks. Previous to that we had a 1986 31' excella which we enjoyed for about 10 years.
We have experienced some minor problems with the classic, most of which have been quickly made right by our dealer. A problem we are experiencing that I don't know if they will be able to fix has to do with tank level indicators.
Our experience is they are not very accurate. We noticed the fresh water tank seemed to indicate empty quite quickly, so we ran a test to see what was happening. The tank dropped from indicating full (having been filled to overflow via a hose) to indicating empty when only 12 gallons had been pumped out of the 54 gallon tank. After the sensor and the panel were replaced, we used water from the tank for a day and a half, and then pumped another 8 gallons from the tank after it had indicated empty.
With my old excella, the tank indicators were not precise (E, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, F), but they seemed to be linear and reasonable. The new classic indicators, based on my experience thus far, seem to be neither.
Can anyone offer an explanation for my experience, or confirm that I just need to get used to it?
Thanks for your help.
