Howdy

I have a 2012 Arctic Fox 990S. The panel that tells you tankage levels, battery level and water pump on/off does not indicate, blank when switch pushed. The water pump switch works, just no level indications. The batteries are fully charged the tanks are empty. I pulled the panel and everything looked good.

I can't seem to get a shop manual for the 990S, so at kind of at a loss.

Any Suggestions?

Let me break a fact of RV life to you, those panels are mostly worthless. Maybe, only maybe the fresh water tank reading could be right. If you want real readings you have to go to something like the SeeLevel meter system. People try all sorts off cleaning schemes to clean their sensors but if any work, I do not know about it.

If you think that there is a shop manual that would be any kind of help you are dreaming. What you need is a manual for the monitor panel. If you can find a name and number you can usually find something on the internet.

That being said if nothing including the battery level is working then I would think that it is a lack of 12 volts to the panel. The water pump would be a separate 12 volt than the monitor panel. I would look for a blown fuse.

Scrap the cheapo monitor and switch to a reliable and accurate SeeLevel monitor made by Garnet…sensors are external self-stick…
