AEV Procal problem

Bought a new procal about a month ago and set my low tire pressure threshold to 28 psi. I remember that the horn honked verifying that the new programming worked.
Today the low tire light came on. I checked all the tires and the lowest pressure is 30.5 psi. What's going on?

The pressure gauge you have may be wrong or the tire is too close to the threshold.
I turned mine completely off.

X2. Tire gauges are hit and miss at best. I can 3 out to the rig and get 3 different readings on the same tire. Lower the threshold or up the tire pressure.

I just bought a new gauge based on the reviews. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0002S...dir_mdp_mobile. This gauge is within .5 lbs of my old gauge.
Since my light it set to come on at 28 and my lowest tire is 30.5 cold and I to assume there is nothing wrong with the procal and my gauges are reading high?

That would be my thoughts.

Just got this and very happy with it. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Don't go cheap on a stick gauge.

Ok. Maybe I can go to discount tire. Hopefully their gauge is accurate. Then I can see how far my gauge is off. It is consistent. It reads the same thing every time.

I have a slime digital that really like and is fairly a accurate. I have a Currie deflator, and an ARB inflator that never agree. The ARB reads about 8 psi more than Currie.
