With the solar you really do not need a battery monitor, so a digital 3 tank system would be all that is needed. Any ideas? Something like this
The problem with the Tank Edge
monitor is it uses capacitive pads to measure the tank levels, not the original sensors. Without installing strips of aluminum tape on the outsides of your tanks, it won't work. If you have sprayed insulation in the tanks, this could be difficult to do. Check out the video that shows the installation process.
As to using the sensors I linked in the previous post - no I haven't used them, just read posts from others that felt they were an improvement over the old type.
