Add additional waste tank types

Many RVs have multiple waste water tanks. The second waste water tank is typically called the "galley" tank.

I suppose there could be a second black tank as well but don't personally know of any RVs that do.

Other tank types can't be repurposed as a waste water tank because the warning level is reversed for waste tanks: most types warn below a low level, waste tanks warn above a high high level.

A more generic change would allow the warning level to be set with a higher/lower flag for each tank

Hi Kevin, for waste and black water tanks; and what I would call grey water tank, there is a high alarm.


and for multiple types, can’t you use the tank name for that? i’m not sure what we would have to do for this?

Ps: the alarm levels are coming - so lets just wait a little for the implementation to be complete and testable before discussing those any further

Many of the large NA RV's have multiple black tanks, Now the folks that can afford a large Victron system. Could definitely use the ability to monitor 5 tanks, 6 if you include the generator tank.

Now I could never afford these RV's. But times are changing.

Note: Close to 200,000 RV's were shipped from factory's in US last year.
