Tanks sensor issues

Anyone had issues with tanks sensors? Have used stuff to clean but when all empty still read full or nearly especially black tank. I imagine it is a pain to change them. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Been rving for 40+ years & have never had one that those sensors were more than little red lights signifying nothing.
You can try ice, magic potions, various elixirs, spend time & $$ so that they may work til the tank fills the next time.
Your shower will back up, usually about the time you're all lathered up, when that grey tank gets full. The galley tank typically last til the other tanks need dumped. The toilet has a distinctive burp/gurgle when flushed indicating it's nearing full. Learn these signs & forget looking at the sensors.

Thanks. I pretty much gathered that they only work when new but after several years of use they become useless Makes sense just to keep eye on how drains are workin

From my experiences it doesn't take years of use to become useless, typically only a couple tank fulls.
