I use the onboard air to pump the tyres up after it has been sitting for up to 18 months. Rarely need more than a few psi so onboard air is convenient enough. Then while I'm driving it daily over the next 5 or 6 months I check it at least as often as once a month and so rarely need to add anything that it is basically a waste of time checking. My hand temperature checks of each tyre once a day when we stop for first coffee is all the checking I need to do, so I don't understand why anyone needs to be adding air every few days.

My Freightliner chassis instructions say this outlet CAN be used to pump up the tyres.

The air compressor can be used to pump up tires. The air tanks on the MH are where the air connection comes from and supply a large enough amount to fill a tire. What makes it a PITA is the small diameter hose in the coach. Do it right, run your own fill line from the air tank with 3/4 line and terminate with a truck glad hand. Put a glad hand on 1/2" rubber hose and terminate with a truck fill chuck that grips the valve stem so you don't have to hold it. Please stand away from the tire while filling as it is a veritable bomb should it blow out while filling. You can leave the air chuck on the valve stem until the tire reaches 120 psi. If the air pressure in the coach drops below 120 pump the brakes so the pressure goes down and the compressor will pump it back up and finish filling the tire. Easy fix.
