Did you learn how to calibrate or did a dealer do it?

I did it by following the AS manual. The Catcon website does have a link to their manuals, but the link doesn't work. The only difference I would note to their instructions is to allow at least an hour between the full and empty programming steps for the system to fully stabilize at the full and empty programming steps.
Mine has been consistent for almost a year now...but that doesn't mean totally accurate by the graduations on the scale.
Fresh shows empty when empty and full when full, but drops quickly to about 3/8 when there is really 3/4. when it starts red I really have about 10 gallons left. Flashing...maybe 5 gallons. But I like this...gives me a warning so momma won't be left in the shower and me in the dog house.
Gray is pretty darned accurate. When it shows full, I have a few gallons of capacity left before I get backup in the shower. I like this...prevents mess.
Black shows empty when it is empty. Shows full when I have maybe 3 gallons before "stuff" is at the lower neck of toilet. This is fine with me.
Battery is accurate, but I have a separate monitoring system for accuracy.
Propane seems to show a bit more full than the on-tank gauges show, but I am not sure the tank gauges are accurate either. Not really an issue, when the Catcon flashes empty the regulator switches over pretty shortly afterward, and that reminder is what I really need anyway.
Other notes. It takes a few hours after travelling for the pressures to stabilize and settle down after travelling. Elevation changes will make the scale of accuracy move up and down a bit. Barometric changes might affect readings a bit, but not significantly.
Mine is good enough not to prompt a change at this time, but folks seem to really like the SeeLevel. If mine poops out (ha, see what I did there...), I'll probably try it.
