Micro Monitor Sensor Issue?

I have a 2014 Crusader 295RST and have noticed what I think is an issue with our Micro Monitor tank level indicator.
Each time I check the level in the black tank I get 3 LED's lit indicating 2/3 full. Then the top one goes out after a few seconds to show 1/3 full.
This happens every time I check the level even after emptying the tank. All my other sensors seem to be ok - grey, galley, fresh water, battery.
BTW I have also flushed out the tank, just in case there was any residue that would give a false reading, but it still does the same.
Anyone out there had a similar issue and what was the cause/solution?
Thanks

Everyone has this issue..... proper fix has been covered before, but it has to buy and install the infrared type sensors. I think they were real pricey, but when the gov. raises my ss, I might have to do some research.

I have a different idea:

Horst tank Probe Installation

These have worked GREAT for 4 years now.

This video explains what is going on with your OEM Probes



They are sold now by You searched for probes - Valterra.com | Valterra.com

Thanks guys for such a quick response. The video sums up my issue exactly, although I'm surprised this would happen that quick bearing in mind this is only our 4th trip out and all have been 2 weeks or less, we try to use the site restrooms as much as possible, and I have flushed out the black tank each time.
It is what it is I guess
