Water level sensor calibration procedure

Hi all
Has anyone got a copy they can email me of the official procedure to setup the water level sensors in my 2015 Bailey 740?

I think it's not so technical as to require a dealer to do it.

Many thanks.

Paul.

Never knew about that.... I wonder if similar setting calibration can be found on other manufacturers e.g. Swift as they are notoriously unreliable.....

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Hey Troggy,
did it work?
i have found out, that bailey set them so when there is 20% water left its registered as empty, apparently to stop the pump running dry??????
did you have the same problem as us, when you filled the tank it emptied to 80%?
Found out why, the yts guy who fitted our tank didn't check the other screw cap that you can't see had the drain/vent pipe sticking in the tank about 2 inches so when it was full it syphoned water out, dick heads,
so they don't check obviously.
looking at the photo the top screw cap is the one you see, which now has the vent pipe, and the other one should not have the pipe on,

Hello Mistycat - could you explain a little more please. My new 745 would cut off the water after about 10 seconds of opening a sink tap or the shower and the display showed no water. The reason for this was there was no breather pipe on the water tank cap that is visible below the floor inspection cap. The dealer put one in (a nicely made retrofit) under warranty after I took it back.

I met Bailey at the motorhome show last October at the NEC and mentioned this (as well as other issues I have had). The chap from Bailey said they had experienced problems with failing to fit the correct cap, i.e. one with the brother pipe. My wife asked hime why they had not had a recall! but he did not really answer this point.

My question to you is, I did not know I had a second cap on the fresh water tank, if so where is it and how can I check it?

Thanks

Hi Apperley,
i have marked the tank photo to roughly what we see when opening the hatch,
the tank is the right way up now,
i had to get the misses to feel for it (ohh matron) through the open screw cap,
as we had the pipe on both i just tie wrapped the other one by pump,
still a bit of a pain to do but now we have a full tank to play with,
i still think that the tube for the level sensor needs a mod on it, i read a thread some where will try and find it and post a link after,
i will be coping his mod for an overflow, better one, and am modding the fresh tang to install a tap like most vans have, pita to keep having to lift carpet, open hatch put you hand in the water to pull the plug, don't pull the chain, dont ask how i know!!!!!
hope it helps
Misty
