Bruce,
I will look to see which one we had when I get home this weekend...and let you know. I do know we got one before that we would NOT reccommend also...
I talked to SacsTC a bit ago and the power had gone off at the house- so I am not sure he will come back online before tomorrow...maybe he can chome in before I get home

Bruce....I bought the Sears 120 volt compressor. It was recommended by several posters on another site. It's backpack size and will pump to 125 psi. I tried it on my coach and it inflates about a pound every 13-15 seconds at 90 psi.

It's more powerful because it's 120 volt instead of 12 volt. On my coach, I can plug it into the storage bay outlet and reach all 6 tires with the supplied hose and cord. It has a clip on inflator and built in gauge that's fairly accurate.

I bought it in the automotive section at Sears. I think it was about $90.00. I'm very happy with it.

I bought my air-compressor from a Holiday-Rambler dealer about two years ago, and it came with a free motorhome (was a very expensive compressor, tho).

Are you looking for something besides the built-in compressor? I got 2 of those plastic coily-hoses (plus an assortment of fittings) for mine, and can reach all 6 tires and more.

Admittedly, it (and any others that pump to 110-125 psi) will take a while to fill a tire, but they do work well. To fill much faster, one would have to go to a professional model with a lot more capacity and pressure.

Ronboc:
Yes, I have not used the built in, but was told you can grow old trying to add air with it. I thought a powerful portable would be a better option?????

Good point, Bruce. I haven't tried my big garage-compressor on the tires on this coach, but assumed they'd be similar to when I was trying to air-up my old coach-tires (it had 19.5's and a bit less pressure). Still had time to make a pot of coffee while waiting.

I'd be very interested to hear what you come up with as a better solution (besides, I drink too much coffee as it is).

CLICK HERE to see the 150 psi compressor I use.

It works well considering my front tires carry 110 psi.

I'm using my Porter Cable 110V pancake style compressor that I got with my nail guns. I have it in a middle bay and can reach all 6 tires easily. With a plastic coil extension, I can go all the way back to the rear tires on my toad.
