    Hawkeye Welcome to the Forum. I see you boat is a 2010 450DA. Very, Very nice. Is your gauges for the tanks not working? JC

    Most of the senders that i have seen, including the ones on my current boat, are just pressed in. Give them a wiggle and pull up and see if they start coming out.

    The gauge never registers anything and most of the problems I have experienced on other boats I have owned have always been the senders as they are in a tough environment.

    The are almost flush with the surface of the tank -nothing to grab and wiggle-almost looks like it is just a ring of caulk around the top of the sender-actually is 3 sender units

    Are the 3 probes mounted within a larger, white plastic apparatus? Does this apparatus have a notched "ring" that is direct contact with the tank? If so, grab ahold of the notched ring and unscrew. The whole thing will come out as one assembly. I can't say for sure, though, on your boat.
