Keeping the standard tank monitoring systems working seems to be one of life’s greatest mysteries. Everyone seems to have problems.
I have an unproven theory that most of the black tank problems may be a result of all the chemicals that we flush down the toilet to control odors and liquefy waste. Many are very corrosive and seemingly likely to cause problems with the sensor electronics.
The grey and fresh water tanks also frequently have problems as well, but they are mostly due to the sensors being underneath the trailer and exposed to road debris damage as well as moisture. ETI’s use of non waterproof electrical wiring connections (corrosion) and poorly crimped wire splices also can be a source of problems.
