Question Air Compressors

Just purchased a 33' Hurricane gas powered class a motor home and need to know what is being done as far as keeping tire pressures up.
Are other class a users carrying an electric air compressor to run off the generator and if so what kind and size.
My tire size is 245/70 R 19.5 h

You just need an oil less compressor, capable of pressure over the max inflation listed on your tires. Many sizes and prices available.
Got mine , at Walmart, puts out 125 psi , tires are rated at 110.

Add an inline air drier to reduce moisture introduced into the tire. When you tap into our coach air it had run through the chassis air drier. Dry air in tires is a good thing :-)

If you're putting air in the tires more than once or twice a year you have something wrong, I check the pressure before each trip and never need to add any air. I have the same size tires as you.

Myself and other MH owners carry the #00915309000 Sears portable unit. It is fine for adjusting 22.5" tires or light jobs. I did replace the coiled air hose after getting too rough with it in cold weather. For size, weight, performance, and price I would choose this Craftsman compressor again.

Yup, we have the same...great little unit. It looks like Sears has drop that 1.5 gallon compressor...at least I can't find it on their site. I think it's replacement is (24lbs. w/135psi capable)Sears.com, if it preforms like it's predecessor, will be an excellent choice. 'Light weight is King' with me.

I too got rid of that wimpy coiled hose. : )
