Can anyone tell me whether the air pressure system on a DP can be used to inflate tires? If not, can someone advise if it is common for RV owners to carry a tire inflation pump with them. It would seem to me to be a good thing to have.

Maybe, in our case with 105 lbs. in front and 85 in rear we are able to use the house air(takes a while with engine running for the 105). Much over 105 would not work well.

A popular Air Compressor is the Craftsman 4 gal. 150 lb.system.

I have used our pump several times. I carry an air hose with me and an inflating device. Also have an air nozzle to blow things off with. Hope this helps

I use the engine air pump to inflate my tires. 115# front and 85# rear.
Keeping the compressor running is the key to faster inflation.

I also carry an Air Station to keep the toad tires inflated.

Check out the DeWalt model 55140. About the size of a couple of telephone books (14"x19"x9") cut in pressure of 120psi and cut out at 135psi so it can handle some pretty high pressures - handles my 125psi fills with ease. The size is astonishing, the sound level is exceedingly low, oil-free compressor so no spills and can store at any angle, and there are no pieces and parts extending beyond the frame to catch up and break off in our tight storage compartments. At 2.6amps it is not even a problem to run off a small inverter! A very solid and compact package. Available online and in some better hardware store.

Wow! Thanks for this tip. I looked up this model (D55140) and also found the D55141 that goes up to 150#. DeWalt has them refurbished on their web site. They are also on Ebay much cheaper!

I also use a web site called TheFind.com where you put the item in and it searches online vendors for the best price.

Thanks again - Bill

Make note that the DeWalt D55141 model is a whole lot larger in physical size and requires nearly triple the amperage to run it. That's why I run the smaller, sufficiently capable D55140 model.
