When on the road I use the onboard compressor. It will pump to 120psi. I have a 50' air hose that takes up little room and use the saved space for adult beverages.

Thanks Richard...I have never used the on board compressor, as I was told it was inadequate. I will try it out....

I do the same Richard, only I have my air governor to set for 125#, not to slow for me but I generally dont need but a couple pounds if any in each tire.

I'm using my Porter Cable pancake style that I bought with my framing nailer. I keep it plugged in a middle bay. Can reach all 6 tires and with one of those coil plastic hoses added to the main one I can reach the rear tires on my dolly toad.

Home Depot is now selling small pancake style "kit" with brad nailer for agout $49.00.
Outfitted mine with a "lock on" hock so I can stand away from tire while inflating, and don't have to squat for extended period. Mine pumps to about 100 psi which is fine since I only run 90 in my 19.5's.

For what its worth. I use my on board compressor and it works fairly fast up the the 110# I use. That said. The first time I used the system I could have made two pots of coffee trying to get a few pounds in the tires. Found out that I had a bad air chuck. Bought a trucker style air chuck and haven't had a problem since.

Yet another Ron

I was originally told the on board system was inadequate, but though these postings, I find that many find it works fine, soooo, I will try it out before I go buy something.
thanks for the feedback.

There is a 12 volt mini compressor being sold at Costco that claims to inflate large tires to 120 lbs. I was wondering if anyone had checked it out

A lot of people have bought this one from Sears and like it. It runs on AC so it if your were on the road and needed it, you would have to fire up the genny and plug it in. I plan on buying one the next time they are on sale.

Thanks that just saved me 50 bucks and a return to Costco. I guess I will just continue to use the onboard compressor it works fine. I just seem to need air when I am up on jacks and have dumped the air. Oh Well

Sorry, got lost there for awhile when we all stopped for Margaritas.

I'm thinking it's not the pressure so much that we're after for these big roadway-abrasion protectors and noise-abatement devices (aka 'tires') as the cubic-feet-per-minute, or CFM, ratings. It must put out a high-pressure as well as high-volume air. The way I see it, suppose I had a compressor that could pump to 500 psi, but could only do it a tiny amount of volume. That would be essentially useless, because our tires do have a lot of internal volume - as well as a relatively-high pressure.

Similar example would be our water-pressure regulators... Most are set at the typical 45-50 psi but what if it only provided 2cfm of water? You could get soapy, but it would take forever to rinse-off.



Or is this all a buncha hot-air? (get it? hot AIR? huh?)

I just bought and returned a Sears compressor model 25310, which was supposed to go up to 135#. Problem is, it wouldn't top about 119#, so no flow into my tires which are to be set at 115#. I didn't find the Sears model shown earlier in this thread. Does anyone else have any other solutions. BTW.....The on-board compressor won't do the trick, either.
