Minimum cut size is 4.5", with cuts every 1.5" to the full length of the monitor (9" I think). There is a procedure to use up to 2 strips if you had an unusually deep tank. They recommend cleaning the tanks with acetone before attaching, once stuck that's where they are going to stay unless you want to replace them... you will destroy the sensors to remove them.
It is very well designed and the included directions are clear and pretty fool proof. They want an inch of clearance to any metal from the sensors surface... off of the edge does not really matter. Haven't finished sticking mine on yet... they are just temporarily on with painters tape to make sure they are properly placed to get full and empty readings. My water tank is under gaucho and easy to access... the twin rears are of my own design and finding a spot to put them was on them not difficult. I had to cut a little metal from the sheet metal box I put them in to mount them but otherwise simple to install. I did the full Monty to our 68 Tradewind and expect it to be ready to maiden next month. I got the SeeLevel II unit in my XMAS stocking... and just put it in a couple of weeks ago. Empty tests well on all tanks... I have to get around to testing full and in between. Just finalized all of the plumbing installs last weekend so its not far off. The black and grey tanks had been filled and drained to test them even before I put the system in. 12V
and 115V are almost done as well, gas lines are fit and "hung" with zip ties to pressure test before pan goes back in. Solar is in and charging the batteries. Getting anxious to take it down the road but want to do it only once and right.
