Bearing in mind the cost of a new MH am I the only person who considers it absurd that the manufacturers fit fresh water tank gauges that are as much use a chocolate teapot??

I don't think I have owned a MH where the gauge was anything approaching accurate. My current AT varies between 100% and 25% in the space of a few miles. But the volume doesn't, maddening!!!

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

That's the factory setting, as is the tank reaching zero with 35mm or so of water in the bottom. This is the safe setting for the manfacturer; the pump cannot run on air and the tank heater remains immersed.
Both settings can be changed in the restricted part of the control panel. Knowing how to set the pump to disregard the wonky tank level is very useful - twist your dealer's arm..

Hi All,

I've got a 765 that reports 25% fresh water remaining when the tanks empty!

Would anyone be kind enough to share the recalibration instructions so i can try and avoid a trip back to the dealers.

Nidge, this is correct.
If the water level indicates 0%, the pump is disabled to protect the pump.
I have just started having problems this weekend with our 2014 Bailey Approach Autograph 625.
Level sensor stuck at 0%. Pump won't run.
Recalibrated the sensor, got a level reading, pump started running again.
Unfortunately, the sensor soon went back to 0%, so it looks like I'l have to get a new sensor fitted.

The attached will help to either recalibrate or set the autopump feature to off so the pump runs whatever the level is

Many thanks for the sensor recalibration instructions, I have been hunting everywhere for them. it would appear I have a sensor problem though as the voltage display is showing a fault @ .05v but without your info would not have known where to start. Cheers
