Has some interesting comments.

Several more reviews; not all complementary.
The one about his camper catching fire did catch my attention.
As to better than the stock probes? Understanding the system (whichever one you have) and its limitations is critical to being confident about the results. Regular cleaning is required with all these systems to make sure you get accurate readings. As stated in earlier threads, something as simple as "levelness" can have a HUGE impact on sensor probe accuracy.
Just look at the photo of my fresh water tank below. My tank is "FULL" and will take no more water, BUT it is a few degrees nose low. The tank monitor will be showing 2/3 Full (about 1/2 a tank) since the middle sensor is located mid tank. Had the tank been nose high, the tank indicator would read "FULL" even though many more gallons of water could be added.
