I can do that- just have to remember to go get the fittings, been to the auto store twice since you all told me what it is. LOL I am getting close to 50.....

As I said

I watched that video, or one like it, 2 years ago. I tried every trick I could find on this fine site to get enough pressure for my 115psi fronts. It just wasn't worth the trouble. In fact it was a total PITA each and every time I tried.

I can have the portable pulled out and up to pressure in half the time it takes just to take the bra off the front end to get at the air fitting.

Way more trouble than it's worth to me. Problem solved.

do you know by chance what air hose fitting it is?

thanks!!!
Some time it easier just to buy both male and female fittings because some are a little different and won't work. Walmart has them cheap.

Don't forget to drain all the air out of the system before you unscrew the fitting.

One more note to the OP. The other problem you MAY have using that air connection while parked is that you may have to fire up the compressor to get an adequate amount of air for your task. My compressor is a Cat C9.

Problem for me, is that on my chassis with equalizer systems levelling, I cant just fire up the Cat with the levelers deployed. The air bags inflating whilst levelling system is deployd is NO GOOD. I could sit in the rig and hold the dump button while someone else inflates the floatey thing....but way to hinky for me.

Sooo, if I am not yet "situated", no big deal. But if I have the slides out, bags dumped and jacks down using coach airs is WAY too big of a PITA.

Perhaps that is just my chassis...

Both of my DP's, past and current, were a PIA to try to air up tires over 90 lbs. 150 lb Sears compressor much easier and doesn't take up that much room.
