Hi.

The grey water monitor on our Burford is constantly showing full, even when it is completely empty. I have filled it and back flushed it a number of times, but still no good. Is there any flushing agent I can use to try and clean the sensors or any other way to resolve it.

Cheers.

I'd ignore it Keith, and just empty when you think it needs it. The sensors are notoriously fickle and unreliable.

You can get a good idea by the amount you have had to top up with fresh water, and dumping it in NZ shouldn't be a problem. There's nothing nasty in there anyway unless you have the plague!!  snigger

Good idea to tell when it needs emptying is when the water don't drain away from shower

We had our Broadway waste tank sensors cleaned about 4 times, in the end, I disconnected the sensors and just emptied overtime I filled up. 
Or you could use Chrisk's method........

Pity you can't get money back for stuff that doesn't work, or time and money wasted visiting dealers or A/S to sort out!

My new Autosleepers (Feb 1 2017) neither the fresh or grey water sensors work (and they didn't in my previous Motorhomes Knaus)

I'll report it on its annual check, certainly not wasting my time and money making a special journey to the dealers.

Like others I keep collapsible bucket and empty the grey water as part of the daily routine of men jobs.

Thanks for the replies.

Have turned the water monitor alarms off, so at least that won't annoy us any more.

My waste monitor reads correctly when the water pump is turned off on the seargant panel, turn the pump on and it reads 50% !!

Related to this, my fresh waters monitor regularly reads 0%. I've had the sensors cleaned but it now happens again. I'm not to bothered and like others monitor use and refill when I think it's needed. Does anyone know how to disable the warning 'bleep' which is very irritating. Thanks ( apologies for hijacking this feed).

Nicnaen..... I believe I read here the cause may be on the outside of the tank where the wires are attached to the studs. I pulled off the A/S tape and siliconed over the studs where the wires are attached and no more issues. May be worth a try?

Certainly worth a try if it worked for you Hog.

Thanks for the tip. I do so love crawling under the van with my bum in a puddle!!  snigger

Toffee,
 
That sounds like an earth fault on the panel or a battery on its last legs or poor connections between the battery and the Sargent control panel; time to get the mulit-meter out:)
