Thought I had read at sometime in the past that ETI would not install the Sealevel system, the Horst was fine as they are direct replacements and require not change in wiring. It's certainly worth asking again though.
That's the advantage - the only thing that changes is the probe itself. No other changes needed to use the Horst probes. They're also accurate. I've not heard of any issues with them either. Of course, these type of probes and monitor only show the levels in quarter tank increments, but that's fine for us.

Some amazon review customers might disagree.

I have a set of Sea Level sensors purchased 5 years ago and still in the box. I was going to install them on my EggCamper but did not after reading the install directions as well as possible issues.
If my memory recalls, you have to be precise in measuring where you cut the sensors according to your tank configuration. Because of this they may give you false readings.
So the kit sits, unused on my "rv accessories" storage unit.

Yeah, they would. I can't tell you how many times I've purchased something on Amazon that had 5 star reviews, only to find it was junk. And, vice versa. I use Amazon reviews as only one minor factor in my purchase decisions.

I installed a SeeLevel system to our 19. A blow by blow discussion is here.

It's works well and I'd recommend the product. Much better resolution than the stock unit, and reliable. I didn't hook up the LP monitoring, the switching regulator is fine for us.

Let me know if I can answer any questions.

I also am familiar with the sea level system . I had installed in previous RV . I just followed the directions . It was a pretty nice system and was very happy with it . It has crossed my mind many times to add to this trailer . I just need more pressing items right now to go that route . Pat .

The fresh water tank can be viewed to check the level The black tank can viewed with a flashlight. I know It's gross but it works and my sensor always says half full so I've been forced to.
So if the grey water tank was see through like the fresh water tank, you would have a fool proof monitoring system. Just don't forget the flashlight.

Hi: craiginpetaluma... Fool proof works for me some of the time... in fact most of the time... but not all of the time. Alf

Fool proof and common sense, two terms that are fading from being properly understood .
