Seelevel II in Coleman 16FB

Has any one done the mod to replace the tank monitors with the Seelevel 709-P3? I am wondering how difficult it will be. Itried looking under the trailer for the tanks to see if I could find them and to see if I would need to cut any thing besides wires. I really couldn't tell but then again being new at this, I may have been looking in the wrong place too. It appears the FW tank is in front but I couldn't find where the sensors are for the wires. It would be a lot easier if these thing came with schematics for the major parts.

Didn't do it on my Coleman but it should be pretty straight forward. The grey and black tanks are fully exposed under the trailer. The water tank is inside under the bed side cabinet on the road side of the unit. If you go down the left side of the bed (facing the front of the trailer) there is a panel there that is held in with 4 screws, the water tank is behind that. Take plenty of pictures and let us know how it works out. The See-Level is a great system. I put one in a motor home for a buddy a few years back, it is pretty straight forward and works a whole lot better than the stock mess.

I did the install of the Seelevel II-P3. Here are my notes and observations. I will add photos later when I get back out to the trailer. I orderd two of the 710-JS 6" sensors as the one side of the tank available on the Gray & Black were 4". I also ordered 1 12″ 710-ES for the Fresh water tank.
  1. The hole in the wall for monitor panel must be enlarged due to back of monitor being slightly larger. The Monitor panel will cover the rough hole if you don't make it too large.
  2. Wiring for pump switch on the monitor panel ( the wire in the wall matches up):
white - top of switch

violet - middle of switch

red bottom of switch.

3. Wiring for monitor:


Wires in Wall - Monitor Panel
Red - Red
White (ground) - Black

Grey, Brown, & Blue (tank wires) - Blue
Unknown or Unused - White (Tank Ind)

4. Tanks are located as follows:

Fresh water - inside under left closet (panel unscrews).

Black tank - Under the back in front of the trailer skids.
Grey - Under the back in front of the Black tank.

5. All wires from the tanks must be connected ( I don't know why, this was the only way it worked) - Orange, Green, Yellow to the Blue sensor wire. White to the Black ground sensor wire on the sensor.

I would recommend putting the Black & Grey sensors on the opposite side of the tank (door side) as there is a bigger area for the sensor. Extra wire would be needed to run to old tank wiring.
