Tank Sensors

Dry camping right now and I say to the DW we have 2/3 of a tank of fresh water left. Her reply is it always says that.
A simple solution for fresh water would be a site glass, might work with grey but gunk might jam it up.
Another option might be proximity sensors are used for corrosive liquids measurements, in bulk they might be affordable if the RV industry adopted them.

My fresh and gray have always read correct on both of our trailers. The black never reads right, I did the geo method, I flush the tank and even had the Horst Miracle Probes on the Rockwood without much change... We just wait til the thing starts to "birp" to gauge the black.

I will agree, though, there is many better solutions to the tank sensors.. But that would be some extra coin and hurt the bottom line.

I just drained our Nitro, and the indicator in the cabin indicates 1/3 full. Cap is off the drain, nothing even dripping out, and it still reads 1/3 full. The other liquids indicators are just as dodgy. the Nitro is less than 1 year old and says something about the importance of quality.......
