Air compressor

Can anyone suggest an air compressor that would be small enough to travel, yet big enough to fill tires for a Motorhome?

Try this one Sears: Online department store featuring appliances, tools, fitness equipment and more .

There have been two recent threads on this one and the reviews from this group were so good that I bought one . It really does work great on MH tires.

compressor

Depending on your air pressure and volume needs?

I had a 50% off coupon and got this 120v model for $40
Pancake Air Compressor - 3 Gallon, 100 PSI

Here is 12v model
12 Volt, 150 PSI High Volume Air Compressor

We hope this helps.

Just topped of my MH tires with this compressor! No problem inflating the fronts to 110psi and the rears to 115psi.
Light weight and easy to use and stow.

hmmm.... am I stupid, or?
Haven't used it yet, but my new to me monaco has an air chuck up front in the genny compartment. Onboard compressor runs at 115 psi.

Can't I just fill tires or whatever from the coaches own air?

Now big Jim, are you bragging? I'm already jealous of your new home, what other luxury items does it have? Auto pilot not cruise control auto gen start?

I'd say if you have onboard compressor use it

Yes you can, I have the same onboard system upfront in my Discovery. Problem is the hose is long enough for maybe my front left tire. I would need to get an awful long hose, and thought a small compressor is better. Perhaps not...?

You can store an air hose much easier than a compressor plus it's cheaper

I guess it needs to be said on this thread also. If you get the sears model (it is a great little compressor) be sure to follow the break in instructions to seat the rings in the compressor. It's in the operator's manual.

Black & Decker has a compact compressor that runs on 12V or 120V, inflates to 150 PSI, has a pressure set dial/switch, and retails for about $44.00

Does your Fleetwood 40 come with air brakes? If so, you already have a compressor on board. Also, make sure the compressor you buy is capable of pumping up a 100 PSI tire, which means it should be rated to about 140 PSI.

I doubt if the 100psi compressor mentioned would air up a motorhome tire to the needed pressure. My 115psi rated shop compressor can't do above 92psi at mile-high altitude. I need 95 in my front tires. The Sears unit does the job without running forever. Those compact units can do the pressure and are fine for airing up a few psi, but take forever to recover a large pressure change.
