High Oil Presser.

I have a 1997 36' Dolphin M.H. with a Chevy engine and the last time I took it out for a trip after I was on the road for a while I noticed that the oil gage was all most all the way to the peg mark,(the high end) this is at 56 miles an hour but when I drove through a town around 30 or so it would drop down a little over half way.
I think it is either the oil presser sending unit or the dash electoral gage.
Has any one ever had this problem before.
Just a thought.

I would guess it's an electrical gauge, not an actual tube with oil in it. The electrical connections is where I'd start, remove, clean, and re-connect each connection from the oil pressure sender to the gauge cluster. If that's the issue, you should see a fast improvement.
