All this worked swimmingly and still does. The modules is ticking away perfectly.
Problem is I built a replica Prototype Unit to clean up the code and get some more sensors and setup a proper Python controller in the Pi but none of the Sketches would verify. I cant identify the issue but clearly it is a problem with the Libraries. The best approach under these circumstances is to go back to scratch and set up the system again.
Problem 1. dht.h not a valid library. I removed all DHT Libraries and reinstalled the zip file included in the tutorial.
Sketch now compiles.
Fixed. Just gradually rebuilt the other few libraries and now the Water Level Sketch works too.
Project will measure the level of water in my 300 Litre tank and the Temp Humidity in the Boltonwagen.
AM2302 DHT22 Temperature And Humidity Sensor Module For Arduino SCM
Operating voltage: DC 5V
Total current work: 40mA
Acoustic emission frequency: 40khz
Farthest distance: 4.5m
Resolution: about 0.5cm
Angle: 70 degrees
Working temperature: -10 ~ 70 ℃
Storage temperature: -20 ~ 80 ℃
+ 5V (positive power supply) RD
Trig (control side) RX D 11 WH
Echo (the receiver) TX D 12 GY
GND (negative) BLK
Principle of Operation:
(1) using IO port TRIG trigger location, to the high level signal of at least 10us;
(2) module automatically sends 8 40KHz pulse, automatic detecting whether a signal return;
(3) a signal return, a high level is output through the IO port ECHO, the time duration of the high level is
ultrasonic from launch to return. The test distance = (high level time * speed of sound (340M/S)) /2;

Weathered granites and white trees in open bush. Some sign of prior visits from the Clan of the Brown Butterfly but not too objectionably so.
The Garmin 72H is a GPS and no more. No lifestyle "hanging by your testicles from a karabiner in the Rockies" statement or any of the other marketing bullshit. It has a display that can be read on moving motorcycle and has buttons so it will work in the rain. Only cost a cuppla hundred bucks if memory serves.
