Has anyone upgraded to Seelevel tank monitors. Link.
Our coach has the 4 light system, which drives me nuts. Read very good reviews about the Seelevel system, but haven't heard from any actual people that upgraded. (I don't totally trust most reviews posted on the web.
thanks

I've installed SeeLevel sensor strips and displays on seven RV's so far, including two of my own. I've been very satisfied with the performance and the more accurate percentage readings. If the tanks are reasonably accessible, sensor installation is quite easy using the existing wiring. The display installation depends on what you currently have and how much you want to modify it. Most of my installs have been to replace the common KIB systems used by many RV manufacturers, and I was able to gut the existing displays to use them as a base for the smaller SeeLevel display.

put them on my outback 10 years ago. One of the best things I did.

The one downside of the sealevel gauge is that the sensors assume a rectangular tank to determine level. so, more than likely the fresh tank level reading will be spot on. But the black/grey tanks, usually having an odd shape and slope will read somewhat odd. 0% will be empty, 100% near full depending on sensor placement, but in between will be off. What I did was fill the black and grey tanks using a flow meter on the hose and then made a chart showing remaining capacity vs. % readout. As an example, at 50% full on the black/grey was really closer to 30% full.

Install is easy, uses the same wiring as the common KIB system, Mine is the system with 4 tanks, fresh, two grey and black along with a switch for the water pump.

Yes, I did. I will never go back to the old school 4 light system.

As long as you have access to your tanks, you are good. You need to stick the new sensors to the side of the tanks.

I bought my system at the ABQ, NM FMCA rally back in about 2010 I think.

When I sold my truck camper, I kept the display panel to install in my new truck camper. I will need to buy new sensors though.

Ray on the Love Your RV u tube channel did a detailed video of installing SeeLevel monitors.

My current camper came with the system.
