Any remote tank monitor options?

I have a 2021 Salem Hemisphere 290RL. Came with the basic control panel for slides, lights and tank monitoring. I added a smart shunt for better battery monitoring. Is there any way I can add that for my tank monitoring? We ran out of fresh water last week and I didn't put restrictions in place until it was too late. Would be nice to have an app that monitored all the tank levels and I could set warnings on my phone.

Thanks for any input!

How much you want to spend? Always the second question to ask. Garnet makes a replacement tank monitoring system that includes a Bluetooth option, see link below.

That price is fine. I just went under the trailer and it is enclosed. Tried to remove the panel under the fresh tank and that seems to be a PITA. I could cut an access hole to mount the sensor for that panel. Just really want it for the fresh tank.

How do the sensors for the SeeLevel differ from the standard sensors?

Pulling down the coraplast is going to be the toughest part of the install I do believe, why I haven't done it yet. Installing the sensors supposed to be easy after that if you got the right ones as the length of the sensor needs to match the height of the tank. Do some searching on the forum find detail on how to get access to the tanks.

SeeLevel sensors use induction and are mounted on the outside of the tanks rather than inside, sensing the liquid density through the tank walls, thus eliminating fouling with solids. They also have more sensing points rather than just the 3 used with standard through-the-tank-wall sensors.

The SeeLevel uses sensors that stick onto the outside of the tank rather than use sensors that penetrate the tank.
