Fresh water tank sensor doesnt work.

New 2019 wild wood. Filled up water tank for first time. Reads empty. Only two things i can think of are 1) theres alot of dust like stuff in the water here as its from a well, could it throw off the sensor? or 2) the hose going into the fresh water tank really blasted in there, the pressure was much higher than I thought, did it damage the sensor? Someone else said probably it didnt.

When it comes to your battery, I suggest you stop looking at those little red lights and use a volt/multi meter. There are tons of threads in the electrical section on how to care for your battery and what happens if you do not.

You will find out as you go that those sensors are worthless.

Only sensor that even begins to try to work on my Crusader is the water tank. Black tank goes from empty to full with nothing in between, and the greys are always empty, (is that a good thing?). Even if they are giving you a reading, don't trust them.

Water tank sensor not operating

There must be replacement or substitute products available after-market that reliably measure tank volumes.
Our grey water sensor on '17 FR 2401 Forrester stopped working on day 366 of warranty. Always empty.LOL.

A deeply depleted battery will take 6-8 hrs to charge back to almost full.

Tank Sensors

Go under the trailer with a small incandescent test light and touch the sensor pins while someone inside the trailer pushes the button and watches the lights. If they work, the tank ground pin is not grounded. Those Scotch-Lok connections are not reliable. That was the problem with mine and all the sensors work now on all tanks.
