This system requires the replacement/installation of new tank sensors and a new monitoring panel on your control console. I also decided to put a second monitor in the Wet Bay so I could monitor the levels during filling and dumping.
The SeeLevel System is so easy to install, it is almost foolproof. I spent far more time accessing the tanks and cutting holes for the monitor than I actually spent installing and connecting.
We have an all-electric 2015 Dutch Star and here are some important notes
SeeLevel offers several different monitor styles, but only one is available WITHOUT LPG monitoring. The Model is 709-P3. The P3 also comes with a water pump on/off switch but this is a standard On/Off and is not compatible with our DutchStars which require a “Momentary” switch. I removed the On/Off and replaced them with Momentary switches so that I could make them functional.
The standard 1/3, 2/3 system in my coach has 6 wires from the sending units. The SeeLevel only requires two. I was able to work with the 6 wires to power both monitors and the pump switches. I did not need to snake ANY new wiring anywhere!
The current tank sensors are on the WetBay side but the easiest place to mount the new sensors is on the end of the tanks behind the Pegboard Bay. The sensor wiring from the front console passes through the Pegboard Bay on its way to the WetBay making it easy to tap into. NOTE: The black and grey tanks are sloped downward to the WetBay side for easy draining. Because of this the new monitor will list 0% until the levels are high enough to reach the pegboard end of the tanks and will then follow 5% increments until Full (100%).
On the WetBay side, I only needed to cut the wiring off of the old sensors and tap into it as needed. I used a Dremel to cut a new opening for the monitor which I positioned right where the old pump switch was.
On the Control Panel you will need to build some type of bezel as the SeeLevel monitor is much smaller than the unit it is replacing. I decided to build an entirely new Control Panel instead but more on that project later.
The SeeLevel system pretty much self-calibrates and begins operating immediately. There are some diagnostics you can do if you have trouble.
