Maybe a bad sensor? Have you manually checked pressures?

Welcome Vincy. Two suggestions - post the year of your motorhome and post your question in the chassis section since this is a chassis related issue rather than the body builder. If you have Freightliner chassis this is a known occurrence and there are different fixes for the various year models.

Post back with chassis make and year and we'll be glad to help. BTW Vincy, you can add your make/model/year to your signature line, it'll save you some time in the future.

I don't know if you got an answer to your question,but you have a bad VDU,Vehicle Data Unit,and when they're bad,they send an erroneous signal to the gauges. There is a repair for them,resoldering or you can get a replacement for about $450 from a Freightliner dealer. very easy replacement.
