I'm planning on using the Garnet systems SeeLevel in my build:

I have seen them recommend multiple times here.

That is an awesome setup. No sensors inside of the tank to get mucked up.

I plan on using it in my current bus as well.

This is the system we're using and it works pretty flawlessly. Since we don't have a black tank, we've got an extra sensor. I've toyed with the idea of putting it on the Nature's Head pee jug....but I'll hold off on that. Maybe if we add an extra pee tank and plumb the toilet to that. Otherwise it'll be a spare in case one of them goes wonky. The SeeLevel II monitor is pretty dope though. Simple to install and very convenient.

KIB K28 Monitor Panel

Does anyone have the wiring instructions for the KIB K28 Monitor Panel? Just looking at the wires I am not sure what goes to what. I have found instructions for other version but it still doesn't match to my model.thanks

Just wondering for those that installed the Garnet see level gauge, how did it work for you?

Works great for us, no problems in 2 years of travel. Was very simple to install too.

So I didn’t end up installing tank gauges. In my case it is pretty apparent when the tanks are full and I catch them before they are too full. It also helps that when the bus is untethered that the fresh tank is about the same size as the grey and black tanks combined.

+1 on this, great info.
As a controls electrician, I'm always on the lookout for proven, reliable, well engineered solutions. This looks like one of those.
