De winterizing problem

It happens that after de-winterizing My trailer, the sensor does not show when I have a fresh water tank full, I think I did everything like indicated using the proper antifreeze non toxic, after de-winterizing I filled My fresh water tank a couple of times to clear all residue, but shows empty when is full
Your help will be appreciated.

Thank You in advance.

G. Clatz.

As long as you don't have under spray on your fresh tank you should be able to see how full the tank is by looking at it. The tanks translucent material is somewhat see through. The grey tank I never worry about (I'll empty some out into a bucket and dispose) and the black tanks volume can be viewed from the open bowl. All that aside, it's still nice to have the sensors working.

I do have extra insulation in all tanks, I need to know my level since I often camp in remote areas,

Does the insulation cover the tank sensors?

No, is extra insulation applied by Reace before delivery of My trailer, after that was painted black colour at Escape. I had no problems before with My sensors.

I can see the monitor indicating a empty tank but I can't see the sensors and I don't know where are they located.
And I should have mentioned that since the beginning.

the sensors are the screws (with attached wires) on the sides of the black, gray, and fresh tanks. Look on the drivers side (port side) of the trailer.

Thanks for the Pic, impossible for Me to see the sensors they are all covered with the extra insulation for winter camping. However the problem remains the monitor still showing empty with a tank full of fresh water. Could it be that some residue from the antifreeze is doing this?
