I've installed and used a SeeLevel II tank level monitoring system on each of the three motorhomes we've owned since 2005. The reliability and accuracy of the percentage readings is far superior to the "Empty,1/3,2/3,Full" KIB type systems common to many RV's. The external sensors don't get clogged up or coated with anything to cause misreadings as the "screw through the tank wall" sensors can. Being able to reuse the original wiring when installing the sensors and display makes the job relatively easy as long as there's ready access to the tank walls.

I've installed the SeeLevel system in 2 mh. It's not very hard to install and a huge improvement over the 1/3-2/3-full.
A 1/3 reading on a 30 gal. tank can be almost 10 gal. or almost empty.

Are these compatible with the newer tablet style control panels? The one connect system in our FW seems pretty integrated and not sure how the readings would tie back to the display/control. Or do you remove the wiring from the stock display and install a stand alone one with the SL unit? And what if you have 2 grey tanks?

this part isn't so much of a concern as my camper I bought had no monitoring system whats so ever for batteries or holding tanks. so all the wiring I will have to run and such. the tanks are all exposed so easy to put the sensors on. my main concern was how well these lasted.

I’ve had a SeeLevel II since 2009 and it’s worked flawlessly…It typically reads in 4% increments and is very reliable, which serves to avoid making unnecessary trips to the RV dump station…As mostly an off-grid camper, the next best thing to having larger tanks - I wouldn’t be without it…

If your tanks are close enough together, one of the nice things about the SeeLevel II system is that you only need a single wire plus a ground point to connect all of the tanks except propane. The single wire can be daisy chained from one sensor to the next and on to the monitor. Each sensor is configured to identify the tank it's installed on. The propane tank does need its own wire though since it uses the OEM sending unit.
