Ballast gauge acting weird

So last week my starboard ballast gauge started behaving erratically. 2006 X30. The gauge cycles at key on but then only sporadically registers a reading for brief moments. No matter what the actual level in the ballast tank is, when it does momentarily give a reading it is accurate (of course accurate is a relative term when dealing with these gauges). I've searched the forum but can't seem to find this same behavior. Where do I start to diagnose? I have double checked the connector at the sending unit and all the connections behind the gauge appear to be tight. Has the sender gone bad? I there a way to test whether it is the sender or the gauge? The fact that it cycles at key on would tend to make me lean towards to sender.
Thanks in advance.
