Dx3 RB rear toilet indicator

I bought this unit 4/15 and now have 18k+ miles on it. Back tank indicator shows 1/3, mid bath toilet indicator is green, rear toilet indicator is yellow. before tank indicator gets to 2/3 the rear toilet indicator is red and won't even do an emergency flush. I always do a full flush when using the rear toilet. These are macerator toilets and I am always level. when I dump and flush the tanks and indicators go to green and the black tank shows empty. I am thinking the indicators on the rear toilet may be too high on the tank in the rear giving me a false reading. Also my basement storage compartments are getting wet. I will adjust the latches for a tighter seal but my son (who just returned from Colorado in it) is thinking it may be coming up at the seam on the outside bottom. I understand the RV kinks as I also own a class A but I am beginning to wonder.... Anyone else having these issues ?

No idea on the toilet. The storage bins I caulked the inside of all of them. Water was coming in between the metal frame and plastic bin. Seemed to fix the problem.

Just an FYI...the tank sensors and the toilet sensors are two different things. The toilet sensor on the rear may be set too low...which means it is reading full when it should not. I have another customer with a 5 series experiencing the same things. Trying to get a location on those sensors.

Each floor plan is a little different on where sensors are located...but the Tecma sensors are pretty easy to spot. Mid is Yellow, high is red.

On the 37RB in the XL that I looked at, the Tecma sensors were on the passenger side. It is a wedge shaped tank with the small side benign the passenger side, so there is very little room for moving the sensors. Also, if things are not completely level or there are things caught in the small side, you may get false readings.

Moving the sensors to the larger side of the tank may help.

Makes sense. Mine is on the drivers side so will go out to storage tomorrow and take a look. I'll report back so we will have this in the forum. Thank you.
