Air up tires from compressor

Howdy everyone
I just purchased a 2001 Allegro Bus 37TP. Been doing a service on it, fluids and all. I have searched and can't find an aux air port to air the tires. If there is one, where might it be located?

I am not sure if yours will be in the same place, I have a 2003 allegro bus and my air compressor connection is in the bay under the driver’s seat. It’s located on the left hand side of the wall where all the fuses are also.

Do 2005 Phaetons Have This?

I looked in that compartment on my Phaeton but couldn't find anything that looked like air. Anyone know if there should be one somewhere? My poor old Black and Decker Air Station would really appreciate a rest. I don't need it often, but it would really be handy on occasion.

In the driver side forward compartment on mine, a brass quick connect
was part of the windshield wiper fluid res. I bought 30 feet of air hose
and a tire inflater with built-in tire gauge. I also added an in line an air gauge.
This lets you know the current pressure of your on board compressor. If that
pressure reads less that what your tire needs, pump the brakes, or release
some air so your compressor starts building pressure again. When your in-
line air gauge reads above what your tire needs, start inflating. All parts were
purchased at Harbor Freight for under $40. There's a youtube that explains it.

Still No Air

2-Lane,

Must have been an option on mine. I just have a plain old reservoir. Thanks for the suggestion anyway.

ProjectPro, are you familar with what a quick connect looks like? I say this because mine was a tarnished old thing I didn't notice the first 3-4 times I looked in there. Plus yours may be in different bay. Sometimes 40 footers have one front and rear. Don't give up on this, it it very handy and works great. You might try the TiffinRVNetwork website with this question. Let us know if any luck.

2 Lane, Just a heads up.... my experience with those built in, inline pressure gauges/fillers they are not very accurate. Probably want to get a good quality dual foot pencil style gauge. JMHO

Your right DieselTech39, and this one I bought is no different. I have
one for motorcycles that is right on, but it only goes to about 60psi.
Any recommendations on brand? And where they can be found? Thanks!

If my memory serves me correctly , I got mine from NAPA at the time. I also bought one with the straight/angled "foot" besides the angled head double "foot". Needed it for the style of valve stems we were using on the 19.5s.

Of course if you want to be exact, a dial style gauge, or a digital if they make one that goes high enough, from one of the speed shops might be a consideration too.

Best of luck in your search and decision.
