    Yes I still have it. It's a true NMEA 2000 connection and it's looks like a 5 on a dice. Lowarance doesn't use a proprietary connection for their nmea networks. Shoot me your email address and I can send you a photo if you'd like. My email is justinapavlica@yahoo.com

    Good afternoon fishanytime, I wouldn't jump to the conclusion the tank has failed until you rule out all possible other sources. We've repaired several similar cases that were due to failed senders, hoses,clamps. The first thing to do is pressure test the entire system from the fill to the filters. We usually pressurize from the vent hose disconnected at the through hull and either plug the hose at the engine or a valve after the Racor so all lines and fittings are tested at the same time. ABYC mandates the system hold 3psi (NO more!!!) but if it holds for a few hours you know it's good and we usually se a rise in pressure as the afternoon sun heats up the air indicating a sealed system. Once pressurized we douse all fittings with a soapy mix in a spray bottle and watch for bubbles. We've seen a rash of Moeller sending units leaking at the wire outlet and I would suspect that first, only after testing would I worry about a new one.
