A bit weird - SEELEVEL II tanks sensors Fresh Grey Black LPG

Flew home today, went straight to daughter's house to pickup my AI after she used it all weekend. Decide to empty all tanks, then ran faucets to put few gallons in Grey to test and then fill fresh water around 75%. My daughter's driveway has a slight slope (no idea of pitch), AI is slightly nose down.
Tanks readings are:
F=79 G=15 B=0 LPG=68

Drove 35 mins. away to gas station near my house. I can feel slab is not perfectly flat.
Tanks readings are:
F=93 G=15 B=0 LPG=61

Drove 5 mins. away into my garage. AI completely inside garage, inside slab is perfectly flat, no slope.
Tanks readings are:
F=100 G=15 B=0 LPG=56

Observation - it looks like Fresh & LPG sensors are on opposite ends of their tanks. Because as the AI levels out, they change readings in opposite directions. They are both long, narrow tanks mounted along the length of chassis, between the axles. So slope affects them exactly same other than sensor placement.

But why does Grey not change from 15%. Black is completely empty, so 0 all the way. From some basic testing, my Grey sensors track ok. If I use 50% of Fresh, my Grey would bump to 65-70%

As a side - during my Firefly front panel replacement, I discovered this SEELEVEL II display tie-wrapped behind the panel. What's up with this? Did not even know it was behind there. Why hide it? There was certainly enough room (though tight) to put it alongside the other displays if they re-positioned them. Will figure out a way to bring this outside later.

Just guessing here, but maybe the Firefly is more like the Silverleaf than we thought. In Silverleaf installs, the "original" monitors/displays are still there, they're just hidden somewhere behind the Silverleaf display. The good news with that is if the Silverleaf itself ever dies, it's possible to remove it and use these "hidden" monitors to manage the coach until the head unit is repaired.

Wait, so that panel hidden is still connected and working?

This is what I thought too.

Yep, though my pic was taken when I had things shut-off due to Firefly front panel replacement. Better photo here

I wonder if the regular HVAC thermostat is tucked behind the Firefly board somewhere. I looked without removing anything and did not see it.

LEW, Well judging by the way Firefly seems to be just a GUI overlayed on top of SEELEVEL II, I wouldn't be surprised. But when you said looked behind Firefly board, are you talking under the C/S bench seat? Or behind the bath wall where regular HVAC thermostat would normally be? Coz when I pulled out the access panel to replace original bath faucet, I saw nothing of the sort anywhere in that cavity. I did have to access Firefly main board under C/S bench but only to plug in the Uploader pca to an empty comm slot to get firmware updated to 4.7. Sample pics, but I was all over in this behind-bath-sink cavity.
