    working on the vortex. The RPM gauge doesn't reliably.
    Does anyone know how I determine what is wrong? Is it the guage or sensor?
    Where's the RPM sensor located on the engine?
    Where do I purchase the gauge or sensor?

    Looks like your waste tank is draining in to the vacuum gauge

    I think you ment the fresh water tank.
    That happened when the float switch failed and overfilled the tank. and or when tank was full and we were on a steep hill. I don't overfill the tank anymore.

    You have quite a bit of oxidation in that panel box and on the terminals.

    A stiff brush would clean some-most of that off I would hope.
