Tank misread issue solved

Thanks to a comment in an old post I was reading, I solved the problem of a misread on my gray tank. One line in the post mentioned a sensor grounding out. A lightbulb went off in my head. The PO must have replaced the gray tank with a bigger one and positioned the new one slightly more to the driver side. The sensor stud for the full level was touching the propane line, causing the tank to read full. Once I put a plastic cover over the pipe at that spot, all fixed. My next move is to reposition the propane line about 1/2" over so I can access the sensor should it be necessary.

Good find Jim!

Odd your prior owner change the gray tank. That is a fair amount of work. That is unless they had some mishap that broke the tank and then when change it they upgraded? Maybe, and mostly likely will never know.

I had a ground out issue on my fresh tank. The wire from the tank sensor up through the floor, (the short section of floor, a whopping 3 to 4") had skinned itself on the steel main camper frame. Presumably from towing vibration. This tricked the sensor to be full all the time.

Having a full fresh tank with no water in it is not a normal event. In order to confirm the issue I jumped a wire from the tank sensor run outside and then inside the entry door direct up to the KB panel. With the jumper in place all was good. So the only thing left was the actual wire. I never could find where it was skinned making contact but I just abandoned it and pulled a new wire up through the floor. This time inside a piece of 1/4 plastic tubing to help protect it.


Thanks

John

It looks like all the plumbing underneath was worked on. The clamp that formerly held up the gray discharge piping is still there, tucked up in the frame, nowhere near where the piping is now. It looks like everything was moved several inches to the left. As long as it doesn't leak, I don't care.

H'mm, this may be one of those unsolved mysteries... Why did they rearrange the tanks?

Good to hear it all work right.

Thanks

John
