3 of us takes about a week, I just look down when I flush. Mine has never worked. I can tell by the sound of the flush if it's full now heh heh.

The standard gauges almost never work or they fail soon after the first few trips. Just push the toilet peddle and look down with a flashlite. It will tell you all you need to know.

I use one of those wands and spray the tank after a few trips. It keeps the stuff off of the sender.

Basically the gages on rvs do not work well. You can buy see level gages for a price. They go on the out side and I am told work well. Pricey though. Greyhawk885
