It's so nice when taking a shower to have dirty sink and bath come up around your feet

Thanks
This was happening to me on our 2009 Eagle SuperLite 28.5. Then I read on another forum to put in a couple ounces of baby oil after each dump to help "lube" the sensors and everything else in the black tank. So, I gave the black tank an extra good cleansing and added the baby oil. Since that time the black tank sensors have worked...believe it or not! We buy the cheapest, generic brand of baby we can find.

Another trick is to take a peak under your camper and check out the tanks. Amazing how much they bulge when getting full....

When we don't have sewer I generally do a blue tank run every evening when things are winding down.

Using part of the Geo method also helps the sensors. The part that helps the most is adding a capful of Calgon to each tank. Also makes the sides slippery so not as much sticks.

Calgon and other methods is good in keeping sensors clean. After pulling mine out, only then did I understand what was fouling the sensors. It's like a baked on crust you would find in a skillet. Buff them of with a fine wire brush, your good to go except, the grommets are shot.

So how did you re-install them?

Buy new ones. $0.70 each at Tweetys. Black tanks takes 4. Better probes about $30.00 set of 4
Easy job, just make sure TT has is tilted so black tank is tilted away from probes.
