We had a 2000 Horizon and there was a Schraeder valve under the hood and upper corner on the passenger side. Not sure you will have enough pressure for tires etc. This valve, I believe is for airing up the brakes if you have to be towed and the pressure is down.

I was told by the dealer that the valve is really not intended for airing tires. I bought a 6 gallon pancake style air compressor and a 50 foot hose and it works fine. Joe

One my '02 Horizon, there is an air compressor manifold, under the hood, to the right of the generator, which has a threaded plug in one of the ports. With air pressure dumped, I removed the plug, and threaded in a brass fitting connecting a short piece of high pressure line to an air shutoff valve and gauge, then to a quick-disconnect air-hose fitting. I bought all of the components for this project at Lowes or H.D., for around $25. I wanted a shut-off valve in case there is a leak in the quick-disconnect (sometimes they leak).

This is the same way that Winnebago uses for the factory-installed air valve on later model Journey & Horizons. You will have 110-120 psi, with your engine runing at high idle (just use the cruise-control to bump the idle speed up). Works great.
