    Have a Autosleeper Cotswold
    the water tank gauge is not given any readings always says empty
    Have been told we need to descale inside to clean terminals that give water level readings
    My question is what would I use to descale tank ?

    You might be able to reach inside the tank and actually clean the probes

    white vinegar can leave a taint that's hard to remove.

    I had the same issue, I just reached into the tank and wiped them with a clean cloth. Anything you use will taint the water or worse. I would not want to use any water that had been in contact with brake cleaner, have you seen what it does to a car's paintwork?

    How did they fit the level sensor in the first place? If some one screwed it in then you should be able to screw it out.

    Just an idea

    Mine unscrews and lifts out for descaling - there is a large nut underneath accessible through the large ports in the tank.
