Welcome from Delaware! We are loving out 2017 23ikss that we picked up this April. We are currently on our 7th camping trip this season. I have all of my kids with me and one nephew for a total of 8 people! A little tight but this camper accomodates a small crowd great.

Hemlock04: I think you mean 2/3 full rather than 3/4. I've used a hose to do some timed fills of the tanks to get a more accurate picture of what's going on. I don't have the numbers with me but I can tell you that the 2/3 light comes on before the tank is half full and when it first lights "full" it's more like 2/3.

Yes I did mean 2/3 and thanks for confirming. That is a big difference.

If you crawl under and look at the tank, you can probably see the sensors. They'll just look like a bolt and nut with a wire attached. Top one is the full sensor, next down is the 2/3 and the next down is the 1/3. There should be a 4th one below the 1/3 one, or on the bottom of the tank. That's the ground connection.

Seeing the sensors will give you a feel for how full the tank is when each one gets covered by liquid. Of course, any crap in the tank easily shorts the sensors out and gives you inappropriately high readings. (Better high than low, I guess!)

Might I suggest you start with Awning Poles & Tie Down Straps ???
Are the awning poles necessary or just an additional bit of strength for those windy days? And tie down straps for what exactly?

And thanks for the welcome everyone! We're in the process of picking our first destination in the next few weeks.

I am sure if you search this forum under Power awning,,, you will see why a lot of us think they are necessary,,, May I suggest if you do not want to add Straps & Poles you put your awning away any time you are not sitting under it,,, never leave it unattended,,, and with out straps you may want to put it away @ night !!!

Thanks for the advice! I honestly just assumed these new awnings were stronger than the old style but still planned on retracting it when winds picked up. Also whenever we left the camper and at night. But I'll look into making a set of my own poles after seeing a few diy posts.
