Quick question. On my light/indicator panel there is a switch that says Blk 1 or Blk 2. As far as I know there is only 1 Black Water tank (based on the fact there is only 1 dump valve!!). When I move the switch, I get either an indication for a full tank (4 LEDs) or an empty one (0). I always dump the black tank - so I know it it is empty right now. What is the switch for??????? Am I missing a dump valve??

Only one black tank - you aren't missing any valves. It should be labelled as BLK 1 on the board and that is where your reading should come from for what level it is at. The other one won't be connected to anything. The panels are standard for most of the trailers so they connect what is needed and leave the other ones there. You should have two Gray tanks and 1 Black tank. There are threetanks in total on these units (not including the Fresh Water tank).

I am set-up right now in the Annapolis Valley - just checked the switch. On Blk 1 - it shows 1 LED, on Blk 2 it shows 4. I suspect then the where the switch has no sensor - it is reading full? Thanks for the quick feedback WildWest.

That would be my guess because I know you don't have 2 Black tanks.

Not sure why they put in a 2 position rocker switch - probably a "common" panel for many RVs. We have only 1 black tank. My push button switch on the monitor panel provides indication of the black tank level when the rocker switch set to tank 2 - BLK 2

Bob, when you select the Blk 1, what reading do you get?

I believe it is a generic panel some units have a second bath. the rocker lights in both directions 1 or 2. The majority of units have one blk tank and only one set of sensors. Once i figured it out i made a small dot for reference.

Turns out - BLK 2 is the tank switch that is hooked to a sensor. After dumping and a 10 minute flush - the tank still shows 1/3rd full..... I love those "crappy" (excuse the pun) capacity sensors....
