For those that have replaced the original leveling compressor with a Vlair continuous duty one and used the existing wiring/plumbing setup how do you plumb to also use to air up the tires?

If I understand it correctly the existing setup controls the compressor being on or off when it needs to level or not so, how do you get the compressor to run when airing up the tires?

I plan to do this replacement and upgrade the wiring so I can use the Vlair 450C but wanted to add a quick connection to be able to air up the tires.

thanks,

Update on my "replacement,"
I haven't replaced it yet. I plan to but other things became a priority. I had removed the Thomas Compressor and decided to take a look at it's interior to see if I could determine what was causing the motor to be inop, did two things and it is now working.
1) use an emery board on the thermal relay contacts, they were pitted, so I smoothed them out.
2) one of the brushes lacked tension and the spring appeared to be bound and not providing tension on the brush, fixed that.

Checked the motor using power from my portable battery jump box, it worked so reinstalled the compressor and it's working for now.
Also searched for the Brush Card Assembly online and found a parts list on Wander Lodge web site, called Thomas and verified the part number is 627243, but Thomas only sells to distributors and I called a couple of distributors who said they didn't stock the part. Another reason to replace the Thomas with a different brand compressor! Which I will do when this one stops working again. The removal and reinstall is easy, except the part of an old man crawling under the motorhome to remove three mounting nuts.
