it all of a sudden gave me a reading of about 95 psi in a 80 psi tire.
I'm sure you are aware that tire pressures will go up while driving due to heat. 15 psi on an 80 psi tire isn't terribly extreme depending on outside temp, sun, etc. And if the original psi in that one was just a little higher than the others, that could contribute too. It would be more revealing to know what the running psi of the others were in comparison to this one.

I have read where they have given out "low" pressure readings to other RVers, I like the idea of how it works, but kind of scary going down the road and have that thing go off.
I had that some issue, and I think my baseline settings were still at factory for each tire's air pressure. Kinda scared me at first though!

It seems to Me that an internal Wheel Mount system with a centrifical charger that keeps the Battery from running down would be the Best answer.

I expect that those Valve Cap Style Senders would be an easy target for Kids and Any shifty minded individuals that are always seem to be hanging about in every Campground and Rest Area! Even though some have an allen type locking collar, the determined thief will get them off with little effort!

I caught some "Nice Little Fellows" stealing those Lighted Valve Caps off Rental Rigs ! They had quite a collection of various styles!

I am not annal about checking My tire Pressures , maybe I should be more attentive, I do have a Tire Thumper that gets used on a Daily Basis while traveling! And a decent Pressure guage that sees service once a Month or so!
