I checked the pressure last year right after I took delivery of the coach (40fdts)and it was between 80 and 85 psi as I recall. Didn't matter what the engine rpm was. I was under the impression you could service your tires with it but found out in a hurry you couldn't. I suppose you could service car tires with it or blow the dust off of something with it but that's about it. Hope this sheds some light for you.

My understanding is that the air system has a governor in the form of a bleed-off that can be set to the desired residual pressure up to around 120psi, and that '04 models at least went out w/the bleed-off set too low for servicing RV tires. Further that the too-low setting was correctable. Maybe someone who corrected theirs can recount the process?

It would be great not to have to carry the compressor. I'm sure 50' of air hose weighs less. I'll second Engineer Mike on the request that someone recounts the process.
