97flhtcui can always get them working and reading correctly that way, but as soon as we set for a week or so I seem to always have full tanks.

Rich, you are right. The sensors the factory puts in are not the best. We site as long as 6 months at a time. The sensors read full even after we dump the black tank. When we get on the road I put 10 gal of water in each tank. When we get to our next destination they read correctly again if only for a day of sitting. I never trust them anyway.

On my last 5er, which I still have, I installed the See level II sensors. They worked great. They will tell you what % is in the tank. They go on the outside and use the existing wires. I have not installed them on my 38EL as of yet, but will if I ever have to take down under belly.

You can get them in many different tank configurations along with water pump switch. If you have a built-in lpg tank you can even get that on it.

On my old 5er when I would fill the tanks for flushing, I would turn on the sink or shower and let it run. The system would stay on for 5 min at a time and you could watch it go up in 5% increments as it filled.

They where not to hard go install other then dealing with the under belly and insulation. That is why I am waiting in till I have to get in there.

I have heard of these but had forgot the name of the product. This is exactly what I'm looking for. No holes in tanks to install and much more accurate. No probe problems.
