Default Fuel gauge issues

When I flipped the switch between the generator gas tank and the diesel fuel tank, my fuel gauge flat-lined to the left of empty. I removed the switch and found that one of the poles was loose.

I replaced the switch, but the fuel gauge remains unresponsive.

What's the best way to troubleshoot this issue?

Thanks,

John,

First check the gage, if OK, it is probably the sender in the tank accessable from an inspection hole in the floor over the tank.
there are several thread with pictures or tell us more.

Seems like my 78 always shows low on gas and diesel!! The Circle H Lodge is thirsty!!! Sorry I'm no help. I had a bad switch on the dash that I replaced. When we first got the coach I wondered why I had only one gauge. Did some research and found an inoperative unlabeled toggle....Replaced it and now I know:]

Hi, The gas gauge appears to be no good. What do you have in stock? Price? Also, there oil gauge isn't stock and it doesn't accurately measure pressure. Do have oil gauges as well?
Thanks
