Sending unit

Question

NAGORSKI

I have a 99 Starcraft and the gas gauge doesn't move past E. I have been told it's the sending unit. Is this right on top of the gas tank,round with a couple wires? Is it easy to replace,how much, and were can I get one other than just going to a marina. Any other geusses as to what the prob might be?

Yes, the round part is your sending unit, it should have a pink and a black wire.

Tor ignition key on, so gauges are powered, disconnect pink wire from sending unit and touch black wire, if gauge goes to FULL position it is the sending unit.

I have some tanks but the sending unit is mostly proprietary, since it depends on tank height.

This information is from another fishing board from several years ago. I haven't had to use it yet but here it is:

A lot of people have had this problem with their sending unit. Some fixed it with a trip to the dealer and replaced it with the same unit. The general consensus was the best fix was to replace it with a Livorski unit. Not cheap at $60 but according to this board, much better. Livorski's phone number is 847-548-5900.

If I remember correctly, there is something you cut on this one for the depth of your tank.

I tried the test and the needle went to 1/4 tank when grounded. When the key is on it's at E and when it's off it goes down to 6 o'clock when it's hooked up normal.Don't Know if it did that before or if that's normal.Sooooo I don't know. If I do need a new sending unit can I get an a Livorski or any one that matches the depth within an inch or do you recommend Starcraft because I cant find starcraft parts on the net. The closest starcraft dealer is an hour away. Thanks J.P.

Valv, do you still think it's the sending unit?

To eliminate sending unit completely test gauge. Take a jumper wire, turn ignition on, and touch black wire with pink wire on back of gauge.

It should mark Full, if not gauge is defective and sending unit should be good.

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
