Water level viewing

Got tired of having to go in and out of the coach to view the water level when filling. Plus, the level indicator is notoriously inaccurate. So, removed the panel in the rear passthrough to get to the tank. Marked it off at five gallon intervals and then cut a 24” narrow vertical hole in the panel so I could view the level as water flows in.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Good work! I am planning to do something similar in my new Sunseeker. My old Tioga had a fresh water tank that was easily viewable, and I miss that with the under-bed tank design.

I did something similar and covered the slot with plexiglass. It is still nearly impossible to see.
