Horst

Just finalizing my trailer and want to install Horst miracle probes. Found grey water probes on amazon.com but no luck for black water probes any suggestions where to try? Thanks

We ordered ours from Tweety's. Unfortunately, looks like the price has gone up about $10 a set.

It's 125 CDN for a set, kinda hurts just got grey water set on amazon for 45. Might have to hold my nose and go for it they want them by Feb 1.

Yeah, that's not much of an option. They can be changed out relatively easy, so maybe go with the standard probes on the black tank until you can find them cheaper?

I get a pretty good idea of how full my black tank is every time I open the trap to flush.
It is irksome that the sensors give erroneous readings, but I'd suggest that falls into the category of "first world problem".

True. The Horst probes are a luxury, not a necessity.

So they are not hard to change out later on? I thought I read something about them being under some insulation or something that made the retrofit difficult.

It would be difficult if you have the spray foam insulation on the bottom of the trailer.

I think they are only hard to change out if you have the foam on the bottom of the trailer. That was why I had Escape install our miracle probes. If we did not have the foam, I think you could just install the Horst probes and move the wires from the existing probes to the Horst probes.

Yes that is my issue I'm in Canada and going for maximum available insulation.
