Yes, Ken has the only fool-proof method, and the one we also depend on.

We swapped out the MicroPulse system for the See Level system Airstream is staring to install. It does provide better information. Placing the sensors on the side of each tank versus a another hole was a bonus. Since we wanted accuracy at the low levels on the water tank and the full levels on the other two, the displays do not vary much until there is a significant change in the tank's content levels. All tank levels are viewable all the time.

The SeeLevel display is above the ship's clock in my avatar.

Until those tires run over a nail or smack a curb. Good luck.

Put em on your TV first, then tell me all about 'em. Bet you won't put another tire on there after you own a set.

Hell, I'm broke now Chief. Momma has cut me off on further cash for TT.

But I will open me cooler and give you an ICRB (Ice Cold Refreshing Beverage) when our paths cross! Best I can do for now. I do enjoy some good company such as yourself.
Sea ya down the road my friend.

I believe in Michelin tires. The new car has them.

There's a good how-to article on calibrating the MicroPulse system in the current issue of Airstream Life. I did it this past weekend.

*LOVE* that!! The only potential modification I would make is as follows:

Gray Tank - water spilling out of the overflow relief port onto the ground beneath the vehicle

After learning about gray tank tendencies and sensor un-reliability, my husband and I installed a sump pump check valve into the top of our tank to preclude the nasty shower drain scenario. Installation tips here for anyone who is interested, and conceptual pic attached.

There's an overflow port on the new gray tanks? Got to be illegal in most states or am I missing something here? Peace,jim
