Meter Gauge

Does anyone know how to adjust the meter gauge in the Rockwood campers? The reaason i ask is because when I completely empty my tanks they show empty but as soon as i add a little water and deoderizer it immediately goes up to reading 1/2 or 2/3 full which is wrong......

Thanks and appreciate any help.....

what do you mean by "meter gauge"?

are you talking about the tank sensor lights?
OEM tank sensors are famous for their inaccuracies. the only way to have better reading is to install aftermarket probes, like the Horst probes.

The shower should dump into the grey tank, but not always as some on this forum have indicated. If you put the Rockwood year and model in your signature, or include it in your post, others with that like model can give their insight into you tanks.
