Maybe make direct temp comparisons of brake components from different sides with your infrared tester when you stop for gas or lunch.
Take me on and you take on the whole trailer park!

But yesterday on the road, I noticed that inner and outer had badly mismatched pressure while driving, and I actually had an over-temp alarm as I pulled into my campsite.

So I made it a point to check this morning, and the TPMS shows them still being matched to where I set them.

I know the temperatures from the EEZTire can be affected by sun on the sensors, but that wouldn't explain the pressure difference.

The only thing I can think of is that I spent the entire day on hilly and curvy 2-lane roads (US 209 & US 6, Kingston NY to Scranton). Perhaps the outside tires take more of the load on corners?

Has anybody else run into this? Any thoughts? I don't want to mess up my tires.
I always add 10-15psi over chart specs. Just too many variables that one encounters on a trip and not about to be airing up or letting air out along the way, unless it's been awhile and that would be for inflating, if anything.
Rather be on the high side, than low.

It is especially noticeable when you come to a stop as there is no airflow to dissipate the heat from the rotors.

If both sides are braking equally I would think the heat gain would be similar from passenger side to drivers side. OP is reading higher temp on one side only.

Brakes have been checked and given thumbs up. OP says problem more apparent on hills.

Maybe there are more curves on hills? Maybe worn bearing heating up from side thrust on curves?

I would swap TPMS sensors on the "hot" duels to check TPMS sensor, then have the bearing checked on the hot side.
