  • How Do the SeeLeveL RV Holding Tank Monitoring Sensors Work for Propane Tanks
  • With your trailer not currently measuring propane levels, I would recommend going with the SeeLeveL RV Holding Tank Monitoring System # SE39VR which comes with the water pump switch. The reason for that is because the SeeLeveL RV Holding Tank Monitoring System # SE59VR which can monitor propane is only going to work if your propane tank already has a gauge with wired sensor. This is because the sensors in these kits will not work with metal tanks, including propane tanks. These prewired...

  • Why Would Blank Tank Full Sensors Give False Full Reading When Sensors are New
  • When RV holding tank sensors incorrectly read full, it is typically due to residue. Since your trailer sat for a while it's very likely there is residue of some kind on the sensors. The best way to keep your tanks sensors working correctly is to take proper care of the tank itself. The waste tanks are more prone to sensor issues, simply because of the nature of the materials contained than fresh water tanks. What you need is a tank cleaner like the part # CAM41146 to break up everything...

  • How Far Apart Should the Horst Miracle Probe Sensors be Installed
  • I spoke with my contact at Valterra for confirmation of the proper way to install the Horst Miracle Probe Sensors, part # T21301VP. They do not have tests on the maximum distance possible between the sensors, but stated they will work properly if they are installed using your RV black water tank's existing 3/8" diameter holes (by removing the existing sensors from the holes already in your black water tank). If that is not possible, then drilling holes right next to those holes will...

  • Can I Use The Manager30 Battery Management System with an Automatic Transfer Switch Inverter
  • Yes. You can use the RedArc The Manager30 Battery Management System with Lithium Profile # RED88FR with an inverter/charger that has an automatic transfer switch. My contact at RedArc mentioned that because the Manager30 is a battery charger working off AC mains (shore) power, you need to ensure this Manager30 AC circuit is ‘only’ supplied via mains power and not inverter power as part of the AC auto transfer. I was able to confirm this with my tech contact at RedArc.

  • Horst Miracle Probes for Gray and Black Water Tanks
  • For a Horst Probe for a black water tank you would want the part # T21301VP for a quantity of 4 or for a gray water tank you would need the part # T21302VP. The probes of these kits are straight and are not a knock-off. There was a design change though which helps prevent debris getting caught in the tank. If you check out the picture I attached you will see what was prone to happen with old design.

  • Troubleshooting Tank Water Sensors Reading Empty When the Tanks are Full
  • When sensors like the Horst Miracle Probe Sensors # T21301VP are having improper readings of empty even when full, it is more often than not the result of a ground issue. The sensors will only read full when the tanks are full, completing the electrical circuit. If the ground is bad the circuit can not be completed and the sensors will not work. I understand that you were careful not to disturb the wiring other than the sensor you were working on at the time. Unfortunately the nature...

  • Replacing Black Water Tank Sensors

  • Gray Water Tank Probe/Level Indicators for RV with Monitoring System that Doesn't Work
  • The Horst Miracle Probes, # T21302VP, can be used on your RV with the existing wiring. If your current system is set up to read full, 2/3 and 1/3 then you could just use 2 or 3 of the probes as needed. But most measure 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and full so if yours is the same way only using 2 or 3 of the probes may prove to be inaccurate. But if you wanted you could use as many of the 4 probes as you wanted. This is the only gray water level monitoring system that we have.

  • Troubleshooting RV Water Level Sensor Not Showing Full
  • You might have disturbed the wiring of the sensors when you cleaned them. When the sensor is grounded it will show the reading so if you ground your highest "full" sensor and it show that it's working that would mean you have a wiring issue with it.

  • Troubleshooting Valterra Horst Black Water Tank Sensors Read Empty All the Time
  • Most likely a ground wire issue. There is one common ground wire between all tank sensor packs and frame. Quick test is to jumper between the bottom sensor and good ground, should read empty if tank is empty. Then you can jumper from the bottom sensor to the one above it for 1/3 and the one above that for 2/3 and the top one for full. If that works then check for the common ground wire. We have added ground wires in addition to the original one.

  • Plugging Sensor Holes for RV Black Water Tank Level Sensors
  • Best option we'd have would be to put "dummy" sensors back in place of the popped out plugs like with # T21302VP or to go and create your own plug which you could do by sourcing a grommet designed to fit a 3/8 inch diameter hole and also a size bolt that would fit snugly in the grommet which would seal it to the tank. So basically you'd want a bolt that is slightly larger than the opening of the grommet so that when it's threaded in it presses tightly to the tank to seal it.

  • How Can a Trailer Run on Redarc RedVision Vehicle Management System
  • There are a couple things you need to consider with the Redarc RedVision Vehicle Management System # RED89FR. One is that this is only for DC power. Nothing on AC will be run through the # RED89FR. This will vary depending on your exact setup since different things may run on AC or DC depending on models and brands. The other thing you want to account for with the connections is that you can run multiple things on one as long as you aren't going over on amperage. For example, you can...
