My interpretation was that he removes water frequently from the tank for testing parameters, and thus needs to top off with salt water occasionally to make up for that removal, separate from the RO topoff...

No, not really. I don't put saltwater in often, but there have been times that my sump line was a little low but the salinity was where I wanted it so I put saltwater in so the salinity wouldn't drop. I'm a little OCD.

If you have a poorly tuned skimmer, lots of salt creep or a leak in the system, that will cause salt to drop. Not evaporation. 84F is a bit high.
