Gas Gauge not reading correctly

I have a 2014 Itasca Suncruiser 37F purchased in March of this year. It is currently in storage inside a heated warehouse. When I went to check on it and do a monthly startup the Gas Gage would not move past empty. The tank has about 70 gallon of gas in it and the motorhome and generator both start. All the other gages work and read correctly. I also get a low fuel message on the dash. Tried looking for a fuse but could not find one that I thought addressed the problem. I was wondering if anyone else ever had this problem and what it took to fix it. Thanks.

Try driving it. Maybe a little agitation will fix the false reading.

Why are you starting it? Just to sit at idle for a few minutes??

I thought about that after I left the warehouse. The group that run the storage facility start the motorhomes, run their generators and drive them around the warehouse to keep things from settling in place. Next month I need to go back and run the motorhome outside over a couple of bumps to see what happens. Hopefully the unit in the tank is stuck and that will break it loose. Thanks for you reply.

Yeah, if you are going to start it, make sure you drive it long enough to get everything up to temp. Otherwise, a cold start does way more harm than good. If you are worried about flat spots on the tires, put a couple of old pieces of scrap carpet under them.

Have you verified that the 70 gallons of fuel are actually still in the tank? That they weren't siphoned out?

I did ck and the gas is in the tank. Gen starts right up so there has to be at least a qtr tank or better. It is under warranty and if the bumps don't do the trick then it is back to the garage. If is was not for the cost I should have bought two of these. On to drive and one for parts. Out of the 9 months of ownership it has been down for repairs 6 months.
