monitor panel on a 70 overlander

what options do we have if our monitor panel doesn't work anymore on our 70 overlander?

I had to think about that, because mine hasn't worked since we bought our TT either.

I came up with the conclusion that I would recommend you do what I did: nothing!

Seriously, the two options I see would be leave it as is, or starting tracing the problem(s), and running them down.

Start with "does it power up" Mine does do that, meaning the lights come on in all the meters. If it doesn't, then find out why: blown fuse, cut, or shorted lead, and so on.

I suppose I don't much care about the monitor panel since it is quite a way down my list of things to to to my TT.

If you decide to play around with it - there should be a fuse to start with on the panel back.

Mine has a harness that has a multi-pin plug where it disappears into the wall. Unplug it and clean all the connections, put it back together and check any fuses you find either in the harness or the panel.

ours lights up and we thought it would work, although we didn't have a battery in it-it was just hooked up to shore power and lit up and a few of the guages seemed to move so maybe we were being hopeful. Our unit is at JC and they just said that it doesn't work-not really sure what that means-they didn't clarify it with me-guess at a minimum we could think about a battery monitor in the future? Maybe I'll just fabricate a special dip-stick for the tanks and go manual on it
