Septic tank sensor replacement

Good Afternoon, I am looking for some help on changing out the sensors on my tanks. I have bought the new, and I am posting a pic of the old, has anyone replaced these sensors on a 2007 Chateau Sport?

no picture. But I can tell you to not waist your time because sooner or later it happens to everyone. Better to Learn walk around. I'm on my 2nd trailer. They don't work in either.

Which sinsors did you buy? Horst?

My plan is to not replace, but abandon the old and drill new holes.

I'm ok with your plan, and I'd likely do the same because of the ease of drilling a hole and my being able to place them in a handier location for re-replacement.

Why are you drilling new holes?

They were epoxied on our SOB, not sure how these are mounted, so they will stay in.

Do yourself a favor and purchase the following tank sensors.
Valterra T21301VP Horst Miracle Probe - Black Water Tanks, Pack of 4

Valterra T21302VP Horst Miracle Probe - Gray or fresh Water Tanks, Pack of 4
I installed these on my Travel Trailer and just installed them on my new Thor Hurricane 34j. Just drill new holes and move the wires. You will be very happy with these.

I look down into the toilet to get an idea of how full the tank is.
