So, here's the deal, my fresh water tank reads always full, my grey water tank always reads 2/3rds and my black water tank, always reads empty.   The LP and Battery readings are fine. This is a recent occurrence after driving over a few hundred miles of crappy roads.

I pulled the sensor panel and found 9 wires attach to it.  It would appear 2 wires are ground and +12v wires.  Another 1 for the LP sensor.  I presume the battery level is read via the +12v line.  That leaves 6 wires for sensing the 12 wires for the 3 liquid tank sensors.
That doesn't compute....thus, I presume there is a separate "switch" or relay where all 3 liquid tanks attach and based on which button you push, the relay feeds the appropriate tank leads to the sensor panel.

Can anyone verify that?   And does anyone know where this relay or switch may be installed?

Thanks in advance for any information!


Tips and Tricks / Steering wheel reminders

I wanted some "reminders" for occasional use but didn't want to pay almost $20 at Camping World.  I found some craft foam "slap bracelets" at Hobby Lobby for about  $2 (I used a 40% off coupon).  They come in a package of 12.  I used a Sharpie to label them for our use. 

I also use craft foam as drawer liners and to pad things that rattle.  I've also used the sticky backed foam on such items as the "over the door" hooks. 

I  cut a piece in circles to pad the cup holders.  I keep a sheet of it as a giant coaster on the counter top.  I wouldn't use it to protect the Corian from heat.  For that I  use silicone ice cube trays ($1 at IKEA).  Besides the obvious, ice cubes, they are also good for thawing frozen food too.  You just can't beat multi-use products in small spaces.

I keep this bookmarked so I can save my brain cells for more important things.

...on her way to the bathroom, your grandkid announces to a house full of family and friends,  "I've got to dump my black tank". 

...you can entertain yourself for hours with an electric flyswatter.

...you think the U.S. capitol is in Elkhart IN.

I just found an old thread on RV.net-open roads forum-RV lifestyles.  It's 67 pages of pure amusement!


General Discussion / Emergency preparedness

What kind  of severe weather/fire  preparations do you make while in your motorhome?   

I am currently re-working my "go-bag"  list of what can stay in the bag and what needs to be gathered quickly should we need to  get inside  of a  Walmart or campground restroom. 

When any weather is expected,  we  sleep with the battery-powered  weather radio on and the slide closed.

It's been a wild year already.  Our thoughts are with those folks down  South and especially  now  in Canada.

I saw an inspiring story on the news tonight.  Check out "Driving Miss Norma" on Facebook.  It is always time for a roadtrip!

Do racoons ever die a natural death?  Has anyone seen a living armadillo?           Boudan tastes better than it 's description.        When visiting the wonderful folks at Phoenix be sure to stop by Rise 'N Roll in Middlebury.  An Elkhart police officer told us they refer to their donuts as,  Amish Crack.  Lunch was also delicious!  Niagara Falls is really crowded on Canadian holidays but driving throughToronto is a breeze.  We really love our new PC , great first trip in it!

Adventure Anywhere / Our favorite places and ideas for forum friends

If you are going to  Nashville, you might like a detour to Memphis.  On, Mud Island, there is topographical sculpture of the lower Mississippi  River.  It has historical information along the walkway.  It is a beautiful piece of artwork.  I believe it is free and the parking is good.  Across the river in West Memphis AR is a very nice campground, Tom Sawyers.  

One Forum user asked about  putting seating on their PC  roof to watch Indycar races.  Save your roof.  Barber Motorsports in Birmingham AL is a wonderful place to watch the races.  It is built for spectators.  You can see the track from a picnic blanket,  lawn chairs or through your windshield.  There are no bad seats.  If you like vintage motorcycles, there is a museum  at the park.

One of our favorite places is the Fairport State Campground in Muscatine IA.  They have porch swings at the water's edge.  It is beautiful in the Fall.  We pretty much like  being anywhere on the Mississippi River, especially the Locks and Dams.  

The Spearfish City Campground in Spearfish SD is a wonderful place for families.  They have a restored historic fish hatchery on site..  Bring your bikes.  The bikepaths follow the river for several miles.  Playgrounds are nearby and it's an easy ride or walk to downtown.  It would be a great place for a PC reunion......in June  not August, that is unless you want to share your S'mores with the Hell's Angels.
