Here is a link to the propane guage we used as a replacement. http://www.googleadservices.com/page...8w4IxQE&adurl=

A real propane dealer is your best bet for getting a new gauge if you don't want to replace it yourself.

There was a thread a while back about the same thing, and we found a float assembly and indicator to fit online.

Since we're talking about a motorhome, it's a built-in tank. You can pull the indicator off the tank without emptying the tank. I'd pull it off and make sure the indicator works properly before going to a lot of trouble. Indicators are easy to replace if that's the problem.

If it turns out to be the float assembly, you can find the right model by looking at the current one and taking the info off the tanks data plate.

We can help find one if you'll post a pic of the gauge and mount and the data plate off the tank.

Here's the thread I mentioned above. Bad LP Tank Float

Yours may or may not be the same unit. Since they're both Sunseekers, they may be.
Here's the one that matched theirs.

Ordered a new gauge for the LP tank and it should arrive tomorrow. I removed the old one and it does appear to be faulty, but I am no expert. Hopefully this will do the trick. If not, I will regroup. I may try the Truma Level Check but they don't guarantee it on a horizontal tank. Will report back. Thanks

Please do report back. With pics if possible.

Did you just order the magnetic indicator/transmitter, or the entire gage and float assembly?

On the LP gauge, sometimes you just have to take a magnet and move the needle, which is magnetic too, to get it unstuck. Believe it or not.
edit: I see you tried a magnet. Oh well; I'll leave this post up for reference.

Here is a post I had on a bigger forum, for the same problem:

Here is a helpful post about replacing the gauge:

Camped about a week in it and used the furnace a few cool nights. Still full (and I mean pegged so full that I can't see the needle). Maybe it's a forever tank and never needs to be filled.

Is that an option?

New gauge did not work. Filled LP, drove, tried magnet again. Likely a bad float I suppose.

Is it still stuck on 100%?

How much propane did it take to fill it?

Was it on 100% before the fillup?
