I had used that for years and was not thrilled with it, then I heard about these - Trauma

I have had it 1 year and so far its really accurate.

How do you manually check the level in the tank?

I've had numerous RVs since 2003 and have no known way to manually check the level in the tank that "isn't much trouble"

2009 Arctic Fox 811 (bought new 11/9/09)

I just release the strap and partially raise the tank without taking it out and I get a feel for the level. Would prefer the sensor was accurate, but it really is not much effort involved.

I have the Trauma unit and its the bomb! I push the rubber spring tip to anywhere on the tank, it beeps red or green....if its Red, its out to that point...if its green, then its full to that point. Keep moving up if you wish.

I mark an erasable blue tic at the filled-to spot (date it) and keep doing that each day for a few times...soon you KNOW your true use and the gizmo is superfluous.

I used 2.5 iterations of that stupid Topeka ****...They parts either broke or fell apart and were "no longer supported". I was done 3 years into buying into that BETA program.

I espouse to the keep it simple program.

One of those items that seems either loved or hated.
Made short video of use. youtube. Course Camper batteries need changing, I get about a year.

When too lazy to get up and push monitor button or open phone I can ask Margaret to check on her phone[emoticon]

Our tanks are at shoulder height in camper- even empty not 'easy' to lift.

Mine too, so pulling them out to do a "weight check" to judge the estimated level isn't going to happen.

I've had the Mopeka sensors for two years and they've been flawless other than needing to change the batteries about every 8 months

I went through two of them when I gave up and got the Trauma. The battery cage in the Dometic broke in both.
