One of the problems I have with these things is getting into them. I'm on the road now and haven't looked at it real hard but I don't see how to drop the belly panel. I'll look at it harder when I get home but can you give me a quick pointer?

Also, it turns out I get less than 1gpm whether I'm on city water or the pump although a little higher with city water. Is this normal or do I need a new filter or something?

Pump ratings are at the outlet with No restrictions. By the time you get the small pipe, and the faucet, you will get much less. That is why in post #8, I asked him to test other faucets.

Dropping the belly panel is not for the faint of heart.

It is also not something I would try "on the road" as there are a lot of screws holding it up. I would take out just enough screws to see where stuff is. I plan on making an inspection panel to cover a hole I plan to cut when I find out where it needs to be cut.

I will be putting in Horst Miracle Probes for Wastewater Tanks in Recreational Vehicles RVs in the Spring and my belly panels will be coming down for that project.
Oh, BTW the web site has an AWESOME video on how the original sensors work and how they "fail." There is also a great scene of the fresh water tank probes and how they are mounted.

Again, not a vendor. I am a customer (although the probes are destined for my Christmas Stocking).
