How does one get to the black tank?....'06 Bambi

I'm in the process of replacing my tank sensors with a See Level system and I'm having a hard time getting to the black tank. I can open the end of the gray tank pan and get to that with no problem, but there does not seem to be any easy way to get to the black tank. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks in advance,

George

Access to the black tank

I did call Airstream and was told that one has to remove the shower to get to it! I can't imagine doing that. But I did find a good way to access the black tank....remove the toilet. Attached are three photos. I cut the corner off the toilet platform so I could get my arm below to attach the See Level sensor. Most of the tank side is easy to get to via this approach.

More to follow on the See Level Project.

See that? Where there's a will there's a way! Nice "fix". Take your time and locate the new sensor so that it reads 100% with a full tank. I simply filled my tank full and moved the sensor up and down alond the side of the tank and found the "happy" spot. I marked the sensor position with tape and stuck it on there.

It has been 18 months and all is still happy on our 16!
