274dbh Black tank sensors

Anyone else continually have issues with the sensors in the black tank? I can see the bottom of the tank from I side the toilet and it's as clear as can be but I still cant get it to register empty no matter how many times I flush.

It could be “debris” on the in tank sensor. Very common issue with all the black tanks I’m afraid. You eventually just ignore the panel and get a “feel” for when it’s tome to dump

Put some clean water in the black tank before you head out on your next trip. The sloshing while you travel may knock the debris off the sensor. Like emoney said, it's a common issue. My last time out I drained both black and grey and I know they're empty, but my grey still shows as full.

Like above, most likely debris on your sensor or itís a failed sensor. If you canít get it working, ignore it. Everyone, like EVERYONE complains about the sensors. My sensors were placed so close together my tank will show full if I spit in the sink.

Anyone ever want to visit the factory just to find that one guy whoís job it is to put in the tank sensors?
