Installed the unit 7 feet off the ground.  seemed pretty easy,  problem is when the sun beats down on the unit the Temperature reads 4-5 degrees higher than it really is.  Thought there was something to prevent this.  any suggestions

What 'unit' (model)?7' is still pretty close to a surface that can get quite hot.  Over Grass is better, Higher is also better.
OTOH the Aspiration fans in the Dual Solar panel models, also don't seem adaquate as all the Acurite WS nearby *(on Wunderground) also show ~7 +deg when the sun is up (a match at night) when compared to other brands
