You put the paper in waste basket. We use unscented diaper wipes - they go into the waste basket. No paper hanging on probes that way. Waste basket is lined with one of those ever present grocery store plastic bags, emptied when full (or if I am taking out other trash). No odor from what is in the wastebasket.

Your dealer is not correct. "E" means there is no ground path AT ALL.

The only time you will see an "E," with water in the tank, is a loose or broken wire on the ground probe, or a failure in the MicroMonitor PC board.

My money is on a bad connection at the white wire (ground probe).

This will happen again and I would have them check the sensor wires for a lose connection at the tank or in the crimp hat that holds all the white sensor wires.

They won't want to because it is a PITA to drop the belly covering just to check for a loose wire. They may also charge you for the labor if they "CND" it. (Could Not Duplicate)

I thought about it after, it should read full if there's something covering the sensors, not the other way around. I'll look for a connection, if it's nothing obvious, they can look at it, (still under warranty).

There is a crimp "hat" where the white wires from both tank ground probes join with the white ground wire from the monitor. If that crimp is bad or corroded you will start having "E" indication problems.
