Air Hose to inflate tires

I'm having difficulty finding the correct air hose fitting to connect to my 2007 Safari Simba's (same as a Cayman) Universal Air Coupler in the generator compartment. I want to attach a 50' air hose to inflate the coach's tires. The owner's manual says it is a "Type C Automotive Connector", but my local auto parts store says they never heard of a Type C, but they do carry 1/4", 3/8", & NPT fittings. Anybody know which is the correct air hose fitting to mate with the coach's female connector?

Thanks!

I have several different air connectors I have found that most stores only carry part of the list, Try a Pep Boys, Lowes, Home depot and local hardware store

If all else fails, write the manufacturer

I've not yet tried Production Tool or any of the "Professional" stores

I would bet that it is 1/4" NPT. That is pretty much the standard size used on these fittings. Available at many locations.

Roger,
Type c couplers are hard to find but a Type T or M will also fit and all are interchangable and will fit a type C female coupler. Lowes and Home Depot carry them as well as any store that carry air hoses.

There are 3 or 4 "standard" quick connect air hose systems. Northern Tool and NAPA stores tend to carry them all. Carry the fitting with you and try them out. Or, you could also buy one of each type and return the ones that don't work. The male fittings are inexpensive - a buck or so each. You'll probably need to have a 1/4 NPT on the other side of the fitting. Fortunately, there is just one NPT "standard"!

My '08 Cayman came with a female quick disconnect already installed. Bought the male at Harbor Freight. Can't remember the type, but it is 1/4 inch. Bought a 50' coiled hose at Wal-mart.

I also have air fittings on my 04 Diplomat. Does the air compressor on the 04 Diplomat produce enough volume and pressure to fill my tires if I get a flat.

First things first......Welcome Jack
Answer to above is....... yes it does, although depending upon the pressure you run in your tires, you may have to use it while it is actually filling the tanks. (Meaning it is running, not shut off because the tanks are full)

Normally buy higher quality fittings from NAPA, but was near a Walmart when I needed a quick disconnect. They had a kit there with several different fittings, if memory serves me right, think it said Campbell Hausfield. Do not by this kit as the bearings fall out of the quick disconnects which could be very dangerous under pressure and a hose starts whipping around.
