I haven’t made a big deal out of this before, but I replaced the tank monitors on our RV Lance some time ago. It only took me a couple months of the “Yes, but is it closer to 1/3 full or 2/3 full?” guessing game before I ripped off the tank monitors that came from the factory and installed a new system. THIS system. Have a look at the video:
I’d never seen SeeLevel at an RV show before, so when I saw them, I knew we had to make a quick video to make sure everyone was introduced to their product. These tank gauges are the bomb. I always know, within +- 3%, what the levels in my tanks are… even the LP tank! They work by sonar, so there are no probes to gunk up. You can re-use the existing wiring. The install is pretty easy. The only difficult part of the install in Lance was figuring out how to wire in the pump switch, since Winnebago uses an integrated control panel. But once I had that sorted out, it was pretty straight-forward.
I installed this tank monitor system in Das Bus, and I’ve installed it in Lance. If the next RV we buy doesn’t have it, I intend to install it in that RV as well. That’s 100% adoption from yours truly. I like it that much.
As RVers, I think we deserve better than guessing how full our tanks are. If you think the same, you can get these and install them on your holding tanks. You can also start bugging your friendly RV manufacturer to include these gauges in their future coach builds. And maybe that’s the long game here. So yeah… start bugging your friendly neighborhood RV manufacturer!
Let’s end the guessing game!!
