Most newer RV's use electrical contacts rather than floats or other mechanical devices. Over time, electrical contacts get dirty and give erroneous readings. There are a number of products available that claim to clean storage tank electrodes, but one of the easiest ways to clean black water tanks is to dump a 10lb bag of ice down the toilet and drive your RV. The floating ice cubes will help dislodge any solid waste that may be clinging to the electrodes and allow them to function more accurately. It's a cheap and easy fix. It could possibly work in a gray water tank as well, however, it would be difficult to get the ice cubes down the drains. Never leave your gray and black drain valves open while in camp and hooked up to a sewer line. Allow the tanks to fill, then empty them, especially for black water.

The tank led's indicate full...all on, 3/4 full when 3 leds are lit, 1/2 full when 2 are lit and 1/4 full when one led is lit. No leds indicate an empty tank. The battery gauge operates the same way.

Which side is the flush value for the gray water on ,Right or Left"???


If you're talking about the drain valves, most RVs have them on the left side of the RV in the same compartment with the water and electric hookups. There should be 2 lines, one that is almost twice the diameter of the other. The larger line is for black water and the smaller one is gray water. You should always drain the black water tank first so that when you drain the gray water it flushes the really nasty stuff from your drain hose.

When connecting the water to the city water connection it filled my fresh water tank. Is that normal?


Probable cause would be a leaking check valve in the pump.

On the RV the city water and discharge from the fresh water pump are tied together. When on city water the discharge of the pump will have city water pressure on it. If the internal check valve on the pump is leaking, water will flow through the pump backwards and into your fresh water tank.

There is a valve underneath the coach, same area as the back passenger wheel. Periodically I notice water dripping from it, why?


If it is a big valve it is your sewer tank drain valve. There is two valves. One is the Black water drain and the other is the gray water drain. the black water drain comes from the toilet holding tank, and the gray water valve drains the shower and sink holding tank.

How do you drain holding tanks 1 and 2 on a trail runner 39qbbh


Are you asking because monitor panel says full still? Not uncommon for paper or other debris to hang on probes inside tank and cause panel to read improperly. Close valve, add some water and then pull valve and listen for flow. If that water flows through ok, your likely empty.

Draining holding tank on 2012 v3600 Voltage


Fresh water holding tank will have a single 1/2" line hanging down under the trailer. It will have either a cap or a valve. To drain open the valve or remove the cap. For gray water and black water you must be connected to an approved dump site with an approved RV sewer line. Open the 3" valve first and allow the black tank to drain then open the 1-1/2" valve to drain the gray water. This will flush the sewer line as well.

Water tank says empty but it is full


Do you have a tank heater on the tank? If not, you may want to get one to prevent the tank from freezing and busting. Next, there is a small diode inline and it may have failed which will give a false reading.

Gray water status light indicates tank 2/3 full when it is empty


There are four sensors in the side of the tank. When they get blocked with scum they will give a false reading. Thetford makes a product called level gauge cleaner that you can pour into the gray water holding tank through the sink and tub/shower drains that will clean the sensors. There is also a product called Unique that is pretty good at cleaning. Try using one of these products, if that does not work then you may have to replace the sensors.
