Terry and Kelvin,
Thank you both for your timely answers. I hope to get at this again over the weekend and I will let you know what I found. I have an inspection plate near the sewer drains from a previous problem with the black water valve so I may be in luck and not have to cut a new one in the bottom to find the sensor. But first, I'll plug the new sensor in near the water pump, as Kelvin mentioned, just to see if I have continuity.

I'm wondering if the gray LED never comes on even a bad sensor the LED would show a different color to indicate no sensor. When I disconnect my sensors to calibrate one tank the monitor will display amber or red LED for the disconnected sensors.

I looked for every work-around and fix for these poorly engineered systems for 4 years. I recommend ending the frustration and effort and going straight to the SeeLevel.

I also fought the Micropulse nightmare for the two years of my warranty period. Near the end I fought until it was replaced with a SeeLevel system. The Micropulse NEVER worked properly while the SeeLevel has worked flawlessly for a year and a half.

Rich, you and Zymurbrian are telling me exactly what I don't want to hear.
Ha,ha!
I'm still hoping that my Micro is the one that's different and that I can still salvage it!
I guess we'll find out soon enough and I may have to ask you guys and Switz for install pointers on a SeeLevel system.

Whenever you are ready! (And I am confident you will be ready sooner rather than later....)

Bluto,

Here is some brief information on my install. You might bookmark it.

We made a hickory rectangle to cover the hole in the wall where the MicroPulse control head was located. We installed the SeeLevel control head in our "command center' wall. The SeeLevel model 714 has the orange display LEDs and shows in my Avatar above the clock.

What would make a SeeLevel install difficult on my 2008 Classic 25fb is installing the water tank sensor. There is no access from above, I can barely get my hand down from above and then I can't get it in far enough. There is no way to install the sensor from above, let alone disconnect the plumbing. Under the trailer, the tank is encapsulated and supported by a rotocast shell. I'd have to drop the water tank which I'm not going to try. I'd only have JC do that job.

It seems like on my trailer anything that could need maintenance is in an inaccessible location.

Kelvin

Gentleman,
I worked on my system today instead of doing it this weekend. After I changed out the connector on the back of display on the gray tank wire with a new RJ11 I still had a problem as the gray indicator light still was off. I did as Kelvin mentioned and found the connections for the tanks near the water pump. Airstream had them all balled up in electrical tape. I noticed one wire was not attached to anything, you guessed it, it was the gray wire. I plugged it in and low and behold the system is now operational.
Thanks Kelvin you saved me hours of unnecessary work. The sensor was good after all. I'll just save the one I got for free from Catcon. It may come in handy someday.
As for SeeLevel, no need right now to do anything. I like the display you have Switz, in the 'command center', it looks great with the orange LED's.
Dznf0g, thanks for the link to your install, I did bookmark it for the future. As a matter of fact, I'm going to read it as soon as I finish this post.
Have a great weekend!

Thumbs down Attaching Seelevel Fresh Water Sensor

How do you attach the sensor to the fresh water tank if it is encapsulated in foam as it appears to be described in one of these posts?

It's not in foam. It is a self adhering printed circuit board...flexible.

Apparently I was not clear in my question. I thought the tank was enclosed in foam.
