sensors part two - I give up...BUT

Recommended Posts

Good morning, I have thrown in the proverbial towel (not into the sink or toilet). But now I have a new curiosity. When we empty anything, or any amount of water into the kitchen sink the "gurgle" is load and annoying. I have the valve closed in an effort to fill the tank and try (again) to clean the sensors. But It is counter-intuitive when we empty the sink, dishwasher or washing machine that we hear this damn gurgle.

Is it symptomatic of a blockage? IT IS ANNOYING. I presume and think I know that we cannot snake the lines in our beautiful, expensive motor homes, but how does one "clean the lines?" Obviously when I (and many of you) would have any issue, we would call the plumber and snake the lines and if it were a real blockage we would jet the lines to clean them out. 

The good news is (I guess) that when I open the gray valve the tank empty's but how do I know, the damn sensors don't read properly? 

There I go again, it all goes back to the sensors. Oops!

Ideas, thoughts? Guess I have too much time on my hand if I am going to obsess about this?

Stay safe and thanks.

Sounds like no air behind the water, and the water is pulling air through the traps. Check your Air Admittance Valve.


You can get a new one from Home Depot, Lowe's, most hardware stores, or Amazon. They are commonly called a plumbing vent.

Now if you can get the sensors to work...

The only really reliable system that I am aware of is the Sea Level.

We have the See Level in our trailer and they work pretty well.  I have had them mess up a couple of time in 7 years full time use, but it will clear with a good flush or rinse.
