    Our Haloview camera worked great for a couple of years, but lately it freezes more often than shows real time video.
    Anybody have the same problems and do you have any solutions?
    Thx, Jo

    I haven't had any issues. Using the same rear camera from 3 years ago. You may want to check the antenna connectors for looseness or for any corrosion. Or think if you have added anything recently that is wireless that may interfere with the camera wireless. Another thought is the micro SD card. Sometimes they corrupt and don't record right and can cause issues. Cheers, Ray

    Jo,
    How long does it freeze for? Mine is about a year old and does only what Ray described on his initial video; staggering at times. I don't believe it freezes. Maybe try taking the monitor off the dash and hold it close to the camera to see if that keeps it from freezing up, at least you'll know if it's the camera itself if it works fine closer. Good luck!

    Thanks I will check for corrosion, might be it.
    It freezes for 1-2 minutes, live for 30 secs, then repeats.
    I’ll try moving it, good idea.
    Thanks!

    You guys are geniuses, antenna connection at the camera didnt have any rust, but I sprayed both sides with contact cleaner anyway.
    Camera worked fine, never froze once on a 5 day trip.
    Many thanks! :)

    having trouble with tank sensors, completely unreliable, tried several different cleaning methods with no change.
    I read where one guy had his tanks professionally cleaned, said it worked very well, has anybody tried this?

    Another guy installed an inline flow meter leaving the fresh water tank, gives him a rough idea of how much is in the black & grey tanks. Thoughts?

    Thx,
    John

    One of the many upgrades I have purchased for the RV is the SeeLevel II tank monitor. It replaced the almost useless OEM dummy lights. With the SeeLevel gauge, I can get a much more accurate tank level reading. Accuracy is most important for my freshwater tank when camping off hookups. It tells me in 4% increments how much water we have left.

    I also have the sensor strips installed on the shower, galley, and black waste holding tanks. I find the shower tank is also accurate, but not so much for the kitchen and black. If I keep them well flushed, they read proper, but if boondocking for long periods, they slowly get worse until they just show 100% all the time. Still, if I get another RV, I’d want the SeeLevel again, at least on the fresh and shower tanks.

    Thanks Ray, think I'm going to pull the trigger on this.
    You have a go-to cleaner like Happy Camper, etc?
    Wanted to try the extreme version of it but it's not available.

    If I need a tank treatment, I usually will use Happy Campers or one called Valterra Pure Power Blue if I can't get it. But generally, I don't use tank treatments anymore unless I run into an odor issue, usually in really hot weather and not on hookups where I can just use more water instead. Or if I'm going to do a big tank flushing session a few times a year. I'll add a bunch prior to it. Like 5 times what they call for.
    For me, I don't find tank treatments for regular day-to-day do much since we are full time and always using our tanks they are never in there long enough to do much waste breakdown and likely harm the natural bacteria a tank will produce on its own. So I don't find much difference and is a waste of money.
