    its a very common issue, as the sensors in the side of the tank get dirty and start corroding. a temporary fix is take off the inspection hatch and clean the sensors, but the problem will come back

    Best thing to do is disconnect the wiring from the waste tank sensors and then empty it everytime you fill the fresh water tank, or sooner.
    Our waste tank shows full when empty and anything in between. The tank and sensors have been cleaned already about a month ago and it is reading full again. The van is 4 months old.
    I have just emptied a litre of Fenwicks tank and waste cleaner in a half full tank to see if that does anything after a good drive around, but this is a common problem.

    Hi All, just joined this site. Been touring for a few years and have now upgraded to a MH
    I have a kontiki 669 with a couple of issues, the first is the waste tank sensor reading full all the time. Is this an easy part to fix, also looks like the air con unit thermostat is also playing up as the temp will not increase just remains a cool, but not cold. again has anyone got any advise in changing the thermostat. Also can any one explain the cabling set up for the roof Satellite system as we can get the TV's to tune in
    Many thanks

    Hi Mike, you are best to start your own thread under the technical section. Welcome to the forum.
