I noticed in the Newmar forum that they can bring their tires to 110 psi. using the coach compressor with the engine running. Can we?

See Air Compresoor Question for some half-baked ideas on this.

Great article in the just-arrived Sept. FMCA magazine on compressed air system in a diesel pusher. The model described is a Freightliner chassis, but if you eliminate the air service brakes, the rest is good at least in theory. Discusses compressor, governor, suspension, parking brake, air dryer, and air storage tank, as well as cycling limits.
Actual WRV parts & cycling limits may vary, but will perform the same functions.

Answered my own question.(I'm proud of me) Connected a psi. guage to the output and with the engine running watched the needle peak to 135 before the release valve in the compressor stopped it.
We're leaving on the 10th to go to Homecoming and then do the Olympic peninsula. Now I'm asking myself if I really should take my other compressor off. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

Chris, if you get a chance stop at Pacific Beach State Park. It is a small state park just north of Ocean Shores. They have paved sites with electric only that are as close to the beach as you can get. Less than 10 feet and you are on the beach. They do have full hookups but the Ocean front sites are the best IMHO. It is easy to get into and plenty of room for a big rig. They do advertise a 32-foot limit but I have never been turned away. Great for kite flying and beach combing. Also check out the Ocean Crest Restaurant 4 miles north of the park. It also is only 20 minutes to Ocean Shores.
