About 4 years ago we bought a Husky Air Compressor from Home Depot for about $90. It is called the "Easy Air" model and I believe it is made by Porter-Cable. I think they may have renamed it in later years to "Air Scout". It has a 1.5 gal tank, AC only and goes to 135 psi. It has been a flawless performer over the years. It is a bit bulky, but probably any compressor with a tank is going to be on the larger side. I only need to air our MH tires to 100 psi so I cannot speak to its ability to achieve 115 psi, but I wouldn't doubt that it could. Here is a link to a "factory serviced" units I located on eBay for $50, plus $19 shipping. From looking at the Husky.com website it doesn't appear that they offer an air compressor in this category any longer.

Hope this helps

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. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Don,t.

Buy a 50' section of air hose, put two quick connects on each end of hose, connect to onboard air system, buy as many air tools and attachments as you like including a tire filling chuck.

No need to carry additional compressor that will be slow to fill large, high presure tires..

I have a small 120V 3 gallon unit that I found at Kragen Auto for $59.00. Its able to do 115 psi, and with the coil hose it reaches all tires without a problem. Although it not very fast it does work for my needs.

We have the 12v Compressor from Costco. I have used it 3 times and it works great. I have only used it for 100 lbs on a coach and some Bike tires. Try it if you don't like it return it to Costco.

I agree. I got a hose and hung it on a hook that I mounted in front of the genset so it would be near the accessory air fitting. Then I bought a heavy duty tire inflator with a gage that reads up to 120 psi, and a chuck with a spring clip. Makes tire inflation easy.

I have no trouble inflating my tires to 110 lbs. Never tried putting more air in than that, but I think the on-board compressor fills the air tanks to 120 lbs - at least according to the gage on the dash. (I keep my front tires at 105, which is 10 lbs. more than the tire chart specifies for my particular weight).
