Tank Level Sensors

I am not getting any tank level readings through the TV or the SilverLeaf console. I have checked all the connections for the tanks and did find some corrosion and got that all cleaned up with some electrical cleaner and added a little dielectric grease to the connections. I found the TM-102 module and checked the tank sensor cables for corrosion there, none found but cleaned anyway. I have heard there are lights to indicate the TM-102 is on and communicating. Where are the lights located? I don't see any so now I am concerned the module had died or has no power. How do I test for power to the module?

Video on VMS645

I have the VMS645 and Video 1 is hooked up to my rear camera. All works fine and full screen video appears when I go in reverse. I do not have Video 2,3 or 4 hooked to anything. I want to use video 2,3 or 4 to display my GPS screen. Is this possible? Ideally, I would be able to push "Video" button at any time while driving and see either Rear Camera or GPS (or any other video input I might use) in full screen. The obvious reason for wanting this is that the VMS645 screen is much larger than any GPS screen. *Note: The setup screens do not even list a Video 4 option. Greatly appreciate any help and hope this setup is possible.

Mounting Box for VMS 333/350 Keypad

I recently installed a VMS 350 in my motorhome (basically a VMS 333 with more input and video options). Unbelievably, there was nowhere at all on the dashboard to mount the keypad that had free access behind. The solution was to buy a black plastic "potting box" with mounting tabs, mount the keypad in that, and then I could mount the box anywhere in the cockpit area. In case anyone else is faced with the same problem, here is a good option for doing that. The box I used has almost the same footprint as the keypad itself. I ordered a 3x3x1.5 black plastic box from Digi-Key. Part# BUD3893555-ND. Cost only $2.86 --follow this link. Since the box is almost the same size as the keypad, there was no room for washers and nuts. Went to Ace Hardware and bought threaded spacers instead to secure keypad mounting screws. The third picture shows the keypad and box mounted on the left side of the cockpit at easy arm's reach from the driver's seat. The VMS data is displayed on the camera input screen of the entertainment head unit on the right.

Unknown Error codes

I have a 2011 American Tradition 45Y with a 450 hp Cummins ISL and the standard Allison 6-speed transmission. I recently got some 'Check Engine' light warnings. Upon checking the (I think) built-in Silverleaf system, which gets displayed on a built-in Sony monitor, I found 3 codes: 264-304-31 on 2/24/16, 206848-16 on 10/24/16, and 67632-31 on 11/28/16. I have no idea what these codes mean. Can you help me? I've only owned this motorhome since the last code was encountered.

VMS 240CL

The screen in my VMS 240CL got broken. The VMS worked perfectly until then. If you have a used or broken VMS 240 or know where I can obtain one please reply. I would pay to send it to SilverLeaf and buy it if they could replace the screen in mine. It is in a 2009 CC Infinity, I can not upgrade to a VMS 440 because I had a Pioneer AVIC Z1 installed in the center console and there is no room for the much larger VMS 440. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Norb Witt 916-6112-7024 nwitt__@__sbcglobal.net [site manager has added __ to the address. Remove them when mailing.]

Aladdin replacement question

I had the old Aladdin system in my 2005 Monaco Dynasty replaced with the VMS system in 2014. The work was done at the Albany location. I purchased the system during the Monaco International Rally at Coos Bay, Oregon. Most of the information that I expected to be included on the system is available on the display screen. However, the outside temp, the bay temp and the compass heading are not functional. An "ERR" message is displayed in the data readout locations for these values. Is there a way to read these temps and compass heading information with the SilverLeaf system? If so, how can I get these items addressed? Thanks,
