Hi,

New owner again.

I am looking to see how my fuel is monitored (per tank levels)  I don't see an obvious way to see this.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Is there some secret gauge somewhere that I'm missing?

OK .. I think I get where I should be able to see the fuel levels.  I think I now need to know where/how the battery is monitored.  anyone have a wiring diagram?   I am reading 0Amps on my bow battery (causing a fault, even though I have 100% charge)

Problem solved... 

Hold down the return key on the DC panel to move past the alarm.

I still need to figure out the battery monitoring issue, but this is at least a start. 

Any help with a wiring diagram would be greatly appreciated.

Is the bow battery switch in the sail locker forward turned on? The little lights on the bow thruster panel at the helm apparently work on the 12v system but the main bow battery is 24v, or two 12v batteries in series and that is what the panel measures. If the switch in the forward locker is turned off it will read 0.

Though the battery was indeed switched on, the fuse to the sensor was actually blown wich caused the monitoring on the panel to read 0%.  Once this was swapped out, I now see full charge on the batteries.

Thanks for the note on this!
