Cool SeeLevel holding tank monitors?

Has anyone here tried them? They're supposed to be very nice - measure your tank levels in 2% intervals as opposed to the old 1/3, 2/3, full messages via LED.

Of course they're pricey - but I was debating putting one in my Wildwood, so we'd have a better idea of how full the tanks really are, instead of guessing that we have a third of a tank fresh and finding out we're actually out of water.

It'd cost me $241 for the model 709-4 which measures 4 tanks (galley, grey, fresh, black).

WWTT29FKSS,
I looked at these a while back and have been thinking of doing the same thing.
Sure would be nice to know exactly what the tank levels are.

Model 709-4 SeeLevel II. Monitors 4 tanks, labeled Fresh, Grey, Galley and Black.
www.rvgauge.com They also have other models to choose from.


I would need the model below, which has the pump switch option.
Model 709-4P

Yup, 709-4P looks like the one for me. Thanks WWTT29FKSS, I think you just cost me several hundred $$$$ . I will be ordering one and installing this winter. Thanks Milzat for posting the link. And I see it is made in Canada to
Cheers
Bear

Wow, forgot about this post

hadn't been on for awhile.

Milzat found one link, there was another place that linked right to a user review, but I can't find it at the moment.

Aha, here it is:

http://www.rvupgradestore.com/index....n=Custom&ID=45

I'm looking at generators now, putting my holding tank mods on "hold" (groan). Need to find a gen that'll run a 13.5k A/C unit safely.

I'll start this post by (again) admitting that I'm new to the owning a TT.

Is knowing the percentage full that important?
Are the 'factory gauges' that poor?

Yes you want to know how full the black tank is before the stalagmites meet the stalactites. (sp)? You want to know if the fresh is low before you take a shower. The factory ones in mine read different every trip. I will be looking at these this spring.

The tank levels mostly depend on your camping situations. In the east I have rarely dry camped. If in a state park you use the tank water and have to store grey and black until you leave at those instances the gauges are important. But for me 95% of the time I'm hooked to water, sewer and electric and it doesn't matter. We also have been doing this rv thing for 30+years so the two of us learned to adapt. I didn't see gauges until the last 2 tt we owned.

Based on comments, maybe the upgraded gauges would make sense for us, as I do think we will be largely be dry camping or using state parks.

My mod wish list is growing faster than my time or budget allows...
