Grey & Black Water Sensors

Does anyone know where the grey and black water level sensors are fitted on a 1995 Excella 1000 (31' model).
Also does anyone know what type of sensor they are, and can you still buy or if not buy an equivalent.

On my 2006 23' I have a Micropulse. The black tank sensor (currently not working) is located on the dump pipe just above the pull valve. There is an RJ-11 telephone style wire connected to it.

The gray tank sensor is working (more or less) and I haven't scouted that out yet but I found a post that says it's on the gray dump pipe like the black tank sensor, just above the pull valve.

The fresh water tank sensor in mine isn't working. I'm told that it is above the belly pan and would require a hole to be cut to access it. Since we rarely use the FW tank (we do sanitize it, however) I haven't worried about getting it replaced. A few years ago the sensor was $55 but I see now it's $75.

Our 2002 came new with electrical contact sensors. The Micropulse system was used later in Airstreams. We "upgraded" to Micropulse and, when that turned out to be a poor solution, installed a SeeLevel system. The latter is far superior to our former two systems.

I suspect that your 1995 had the same electrical contact sensors we had in our 2002. I never checked to see, but I suspect that they just measured resistance which would be lower with fluid in the tank. Ours were inserted at about 3 levels through the walls of the tanks.
