Where is the fuel gauge?

I give up, I can not find the gauge for the fuel tank. I have a 05 sandpiper 38ft

unless you have a toyhauler, why would a 5th wheel or travel trailer have a fuel gauge?

If you are referring to the propane tanks, they don't have a gauge for them

Isn't there a propane level indicator on the control center? There might also be a dial gauge on the tank. Just check my Lexington and the is a dial on the tank AND a level indicator on the control center.

Most travel trailers have portable tanks, unlike the permanent mount tanks that mount horizontally.

With the portable tanks, I haven't personally seen any with a gauge.

Sorry. It is a toy hauler and I was asking about the fuel station (gas pump). It does not have anything next to the control center, just a switch by the door to turn on the pump, witch does not work but thats for another day. I have looked what seams to be everyware and so did a friend. Nothing.

Does your 5th wheel also have a generator? If it does NOT, stop reading.

My previous rig was a 5th wheel toy hauler (different brand altogether though). It had a generator, and the fuel gauge for the generator was also the fuel gauge for the pump station. Next to the on off switch for the generator was another (unmarked switch) that was used to monitor the amount of fuel in the pump station tank. Alternatively, the generator may share the tank, in which case, the generator fuel gauge may be the one and only fuel gauge (switch not required). This is all dependent upon you even having a generator.
