Regardless, the same principles apply for keeping the tank interior clean. Those "sensors" are not complicated. They are just a low voltage resistance circuit. When water contacts the metal inside the tank that the wire is connected to (on the outside tank wall), it completes a simple low voltage circuit. Not rocket science.

I have a feeling if finding the storage tanks on your RV is difficult... it's going to be a long journey.

Or some can accept the fact that eventually the sensors will get covered with enough crud such that the sensors may not work or give false reading, accept it as normal & expected; and then blame TMC for buying / installing faulty sensors

I think any good quality biodegradable waste breakdown cleaner will work if used properly and all the time. I have used Thetford for Day 1, it works, I always buy on sale and in volume, I have 3 other cassette porti pottis made by Thetford for boat and for tent camping. There really could be better products than Thor, but I will never know, because I have no reason to change.

I think our gray tank is forever clean because my DW will literally squirt the dishwashing liquid directly in the sink just because she may have seen me poor a little hot beer or remnants of coke in the sink Throw in excessive hand washing and our gray tank is technically being cleaned 24/7 when we are using it.
