Looking to replace the push button Guages for Fresh, battery, grey, and black tanks, does anyone know who makes any?

Found a pic of a panel in this thread, Post #11:

Design Flaw Pet Peeves

The panel says "Forest River" in great big letters at the top, but in the bottom corner, it has a logo that says "KIB."

So found I googled KIB and found this site:

SeeLevel makes the best but very expensive! They have flexible circuit boards applied to the outside of the tanks so they never get gunk stuck on them for a false reading like the ones we have now do. They are very accurate. Usually only see these on very expensive motor homes. Do a Google search on them.

I replace the lousy tank sensors before I'd replace the gauges.
I'd install some Horst probes if I wanted more accurate readings.
Replacing the gauge panel won't make the tank readings anymore accurate.

Agree on the factory panel, but the Horst probes are only marginally better. They can foul also.

Dropping $250 or so on the see level system is the way to go. The see level system will read accurate always. I already have a kit here for our new Roo.

The downside to the see level is your not taking it with you if you sell or trade the rig. You can not get the sensor strips off without damaging them. You could take out the panel but to buy three of the new sensors costs the same as the entire new system.
