345 LP Tank Gauge Malfunction

The LP tank guage used to work fine. For those not familier, it is located on the console over the sink. It used to say full, 3/4, 1/2, and 1/4. Now it will only show all of these values. I know there is still a guage on the actual tank, but the inside one was convenient.
Has anyone ever experienced this and fixed it?

The LP tank should have a magnetic drive guage on it that you can read. There should be electrical connections on that unit that go to your console over the sink. The magnetic driven guage on the tank is held in place by two phillps screws, and you can replace it with propane in the tank. If you don't feel comfortable replacing the unit take it to a propane distributor or RV service shop. They go bad and you should be able to get a replacement relatively cheap. Any propane dealer should stock them, as some residential tanks use the same unit.
