Fresh tank gauge not reading

2012 27FB International. The fresh gauge is not reading at all. All the lights on the panel are working, ie: when the system powers up and it does the start up routine, all of the lights, including the one on top, light up. I suspect that the connection to the gauge has worked loose. Anyone know where this connection is located, and what type it is(ie: plug, splice, clip, etc). Thanks in advance for any help.

Try removing the panel from the wall. Unplug and check cords at that point. Mine had slight corrosion at that point. Plugs are standard telephone wire and connectors.

More info: In trying to track down a slight leak underneath the rig my repair guy dropped the tanks (and while down there replaced the gate valves). I suspect that maybe the connection to the fresh tank sensor was knocked loose or disconnected. I will check the RJ11 behind the panel, but I suspect that's not it.

I had a similar problem on my 2004 classic. I called the manufacturer and they sent me a new panel and walked me through recalibrating the new one.

If all else fails call the manufacturer. Wolf146

The wires generally travel through the belly pans. If trouble started about then I think you are on to it with possibility a damaged wire.

How do you remove the panel from the wall? No visible screws and I don't want to just start prying without understanding how it's attached.

Is it the See Level panel? Mine has a small indent at the bottom that allows for a very careful prying to pop out of the wall

Thx for the reply. Mine is a Micropulse which has a black housing attached to the wall and a thin metal front panel attached to that with the LED's and rocker switches.
