Tank Sensor Wires

Hey All,
I'm renovating my 1995 34' Excella. I've found that my water tanks all have 3 single wires attached at several different levels on the tank, and then they connect in one connector (towards the top center of the picture in red). A single seperate wire runs to the monitor panel (in the bottom of the picture). Is this correct? I'm just not familiar with this kind of wiring set up and I want to make sure this is right before I cover it all back up under the floor. Thanks in advance for your help.

Well fill the tanks with water and see if they read correctly.

Perry,
I would but we have the trailer so torn apart that the tanks currently can't handle water (a lot of cut plumbing lines). After doing some homework on the forum, i'm going to upgrade to the See Level II system. It looks like it's the best solution....just replace it all!!!
Thanks

The sensors on my 81 still work fine. One tank had a couple wires reversed from the factory and I had to replace an Opp amp or two in the control board. Good luck with it.

I've had very good luck with my SeeLevel. I'm installing my second one in my Overlander for all three tanks, fresh, gray and black. I did the same with the 66 Trade Wind.

The tanks I ordered had the old style "resistance" probes molded in. You can see the buttons in the photo. The SeeLevel circuits just adhere to the outside surface of the tank.
