At CaravanMods, we have a range of the best caravan water tank gauges on the market, so you can effortlessly monitor your water supply and enjoy the peace of the open road no matter the distance between stops.
Essential mods to improve your caravanning
We all know having access to water is essential for your safety and health. Whether you’re holidaying at a designated campsite or caravanning off-grid, having access to your water levels is vital to monitoring your water supply. Buy a caravan water gauge to ensure you have water to drink, clean and wash for a smooth caravanning trip. Offering you fantastic versatility, our caravan water tank level indicators can be installed on tanks for any setting, from your caravans, boats, camper vans, RVs and even homes not connected to centralised water systems.
Simple operation and easy installation
With a click of a button, you’ll have an accurate and easy view of your water levels without estimating the level of water in your tank. Our collection includes options for single, dual and triple tank settings with separate metres for each tank, so you’ll always know how much water you have available to use. All you need is a sender probe (sold separately) for each tank. Our range also includes control panels that collect data from your water tank gauge, gas, and battery to see all your utilities on one panel for an easy overview.
Powered by batteries so you can check your water supply without having to use your vehicle’s battery reserves or be connected to electricity mains, our caravan water level indicators allow you to feel confident you have the information you need at hand — wherever you are. Installation is easy — with a couple of tools and a little bit of DIY know-how, anyone can fit a caravan water tank gauge.

How do caravan water gauges work?
A sender probe (sold separately) features a series of sensors along the bar, which measures your tank’s current capacity and feeds this data to the water tank gauge’s control panel for you to read at any time.
Should you keep caravan water tanks full?
Keeping your water tanks full is crucial while you're on the road. You never know when you could find yourself stuck by the side of the road due to a breakdown, and a ready water supply is critical.
However, this doesn't mean it should be full year-round. If you’re between trips and are storing your caravan, we recommend keeping your tank clean with a tank cleaner product similar to Camec Tank Cleen. Using a tank cleaning product is essential to prevent bacterial growth and ensure potable water is always available when you need it.
How do you install a water tank indicator on a caravan?
Installing caravan water tank gauges is easy. While every gauge carries its own instructions, the general steps involved are:
Drain all water from your tank and select a spot to install closest to where the caravan water gauge will be fitted while checking the wire lead can reach the distance.
Mark a position to install a quarter of the way down from the top and at least 240mm in from the right-hand corner. Ensure you don’t position the sender probe on any bends or curves to maintain a tight seal.
Using a 22mm hole saw at a slow speed, drill a hole in the water tank and clean debris away.
Insert the sender probe through the hole and secure the nut with your fingers and spanner without over-tightening. The self-sealing grommet should provide a watertight seal if installed correctly.
Flush all debris from the water tank and plug the wire into the back of the water tank level gauge.
Mounting the Gauge/Panel: With a 16mm hole saw, slowly drill a hole into the surface where you’ll install the water tank level indicator and feed the wiring loom up to the gauge and plug it into the back.
Attach the caravan water tank level indicator to the wall with the adhesive backing or mount if provided.
Fill your water tank and confirm the working order of your water tank gauge by pressing the test button.
The reserve light will flash red when the water level falls below 25% capacity.
