Pollack fuel selector valve Wiring

Long story short! I bought a regency conversion 2006 F550 and have yet to get the aux fuel system to show fuel level on the gauge. There is no separate fuel gauge just factory. My question(s) are will it read out on the factory instruments or not? Valve itself seems to work best I can tell... I hear it when I hit the main/aux switch. Coming out of the Pollack valve is a series of wires some I understand what and where they go but one or two are wired into the factory harness on the frame rail. I do not know what else to check. I have been afraid to run the truck down the road on the aux setting just incase something is wrong and it's not getting fuel. As of now what ever level of fuel I have in my factory front and rear tank is all my gauge reads. If I switch it to aux it just shows the exact level of stock tanks..hopefully that makes sense to those that are reading this. I know it's not correct as I am guessing I have about 40 gals in the aux tank.
No brand name on the tank or anything other than the selector valve. Same brand that ford already had on it for the cab/chassis front and rear tanks.

Where does the tank feed into? Does it feed the main tank?

It probably is not hooked up to the factory gauge, but you could try and find the factory gauge wires and see if any of those wires are spliced into the factory wires. Also it would seem to me that if the tank had wires coming out of it those would be the wires that would send the signal to the gauge not the wires on the valve.

Yeah it has wires coming out of the tank sending unit and another 5 or 6 wires coming out of the pollack fuel valve. Sending unit wires go up under dash as we'll. I'm just really unclear as to why it would tie in to the factory harness if it doesn't read out anywhere on factory instrument. It's puzzling to say the least. Guess it could be a traxxas fuel system and whoever just took the read out gauge..maybe

Are the sending unit wires up under the dash hooked up to anything that you can tell? If not could be there was a gauge mounted somewhere and then it was removed or never installed.
