Default Propane level doesn't work

I have a 2006 Roadtrek SS Agile and my propane level doesn't seem to be working. Any insight?

Which level?

The one on the tank?
or the one at the panel?


It is expensive to replace the float sensor.

Most don't do well even in the best of times

Panel. Reads full. Gen died like it's empty.

Crawl under the van and read the gauge on the tank. See if it also reads empty.

I'll check it out in the morning. Never been under the tank before. Didn't know there was another gauge.

You donít have to crawl under. Itís at the side of the van.

Most likely a loose wire (or a crossed wire, or a short wire).

OK. So I crawled under the van this morning. There is no gauge anywhere I can see. Not on the side of the van, not inside the panel with the filler connection, not on the tank. I tapped on the tank. It sounds empty. I looked over the 2-wire connection I assume is the level sending unit. It looks to be ok. Nothing frayed or shorted looking.

Did I miss something?

Check the wire connection at the panel.



Do you have a multi-meter?
You can check for continuity and signal.
