Why do you want to upgrade? I've found that the sensors can get pretty dirty, but once cleaned they work fine. Charlie

I agree once I'm at a track and have to pump out sometimes the gauge is still reading 3/4 full but when I get home and flush it always goes back to empty I guage the fullness on the road by the gray tank ....it is always full before the black and those sensors stay correct.....Jim k

Hi...

In the tank dump area you have that white plastic wall. The tanks and probes are right behind that wall. The wall is in two sections and many screws. The top part comes out without an issue, the bottom section is harder to get out.

I replaced all my probes in the black and gray tanks with these...

http://www.rvprobes.com/home.html

Have not had an issue from that time! You will need to drill new holes right next the to current ones as the ones GS used are not removable. Then use the same wires. Very simple to do. Not to worry. (Just make sure your tanks are empty!!!! LOL) THe worst part IMHO was getting the white panels off and back on.

NOTE...their are two differnt probes, one type for the gray tank and the other for the black. One set of 4 for each tank type. They are not cheep...IMHO...but I am SO HAPPY I took the time to do it with these.

Might I also suggest that after you install them, do not yet put back the walls. I say this for you are going to want to be sure each new probe does not leek and you can only do that when the takes fill up. I checked mine when it hit each point and did not empty until I knew it was good to go. Then I put back the walls. (as you will see, and as mentioned, it really was the worst part.)

Default black water sensor

I have a 2006 tourmaster, also getting false readings, and we have never put TP in the system. I will also order the probes. Thanks!

I always figure that if I still have water, the holding tanks are probably not full!

I hadn't thought about it that way. Maybe I'd better get bigger tanks!

hy-all

did the same installation or modification to the black tank upgrading the probes. Very easy upgrade, did have to drill the 3/8 holes for each probe no problems just recommened if you install thes Horst Probes from RVProbes don't torx them tight its not necessary and do a pressure test for leaks before buttoning up

I used to have the same problem until I discovered to use Happy Camper. It is the best thing you can use on the black and gray tanks. When you dump their are no solids, it will turn everything back into water and the smell is gone. I have not had any problems with the tank reading since I started using the stuff. You can get it through the internet.
