Basecamp 20x Fresh water 1/3 remains

We have a basecamp 20x, the fresh water runs out when the sea level gauge is between 29 and 33%. The trailer is new, I thought the sensor was just misplaced or not well connected but I found that the tank is 1/3 full when the pump runs dry.
Is there a pickup tube in these tanks? Any other way to help get all the water out?

You might want to ask this in the Basecamp forum:

https://www.airforums.com/forums/f404/

The BC is a fairly unique model, and folks with other models may just be guessing here IMO.

Have you called the Airstream toll-free number, and your dealer, under warranty?

Good luck.

Waiting on as reply. But. Like the furnace that they are now just discovering and took weeks too admit an issue... I am trying to pre load the point that this may be a design issue in the 20

I tilted the tank by tilting the trailer then ran the pump to dry. This gave me another 4 gallons so I know if the tank is tilted we can get to 22 of 27 gallons. Now just change the pickup tube.....

Has anyone tried or used a Uniseal in a RV tank. It is rated for this but just curious these are slip in seal that you then slide (or nearly force) a fitting into. They are rated to 65 PSI when installed properly. I cannot do a new spin weld fitting since the current one is in the way.

I may drop the tank and come in from the top via Uniseal and have a dip tube line setup.
