How accurate / inaccurate is the gauge on the potable fresh water tank ?
Mine reads empty and when I add 6 gallons of water the gauge reafs about 3/4 full
If I add 9 gallons of water to the tank the gauge goes from empty to full
I can understand erroneous readings of the grey or black tank but the fresh water tank is not subject to the same comditions .

Mine seems to read the most accurately the first few weeks when i sanitize with 1/2 cup of bleach. I look at the “shadow in the tank” from the outside. When mine says empty, you can bet there’s not much left. That’s when I become Jug Head and go for water. I have two fives so three trips and I’m full again. Do not, I repeat, Do not use a water bandit on the unthreaded brass water spigot in the Mountain Park Campground in Colorado. The camp host does not appreciate it a tall. What is the Algonquin phrase for “It fills by moonlight”?
Strike while the iron is hot. Live every day as if it were your last and one day you will be right.
Mine reads well, but up you must take in account it just has the four contacts and anything level wise between them reads only on the lower amount. If accuracy is really needed, like when getting low just before packing up, I just look at the tank and know exactly what is in it.

Here's the chart I made of my 28 gallon fresh tank while filling from empty, so the led lit when it hit this capacity. On one of the rare occasions they seemed to be working. This is the pin type sensors.
Full - 22 gal
2/3 - 14 gal
1/3 - 6 gal
Not terribly accurate.
