There are so many different ones. Your local tool store will have the right one for you.

I installed one on the back bumper of me T/C RV. Perfect for running air tools as well.

Lowes or harbor Freight have a nice selection of air hose fittings . Perhaps the Home Depot in your area does as well.. A suitable 3/8 dia polyethylene hose, 50 ft. with ends installed might be less than 15 bucks . Black rubber a couple of dollars less . I like the lighter weight of the poly and it comes in colors .

on edit .. here is a HF item that may interest you

That fitting is typically installed for a tow truck to keep pressure up to prevent rear parking brake from locking up and inflate air bag suspension while towing. Make sure that the fitting doesn't have a one way valve to prevent using it as an air supply, some are so equipped.

I had to change that connection on mine to work with the connections I had.
The connection will probably be good up to 110 PSI on 22.5 tires.
Any higher will take a long time or luck catching the air right before hi cut off PSI.

That fitting on a Fleetwood can't be used for a tow truck.
It has a check valve for only outlet air.

For towing, air is hooked to a valve at the air dryer.

Steve when you find out the size would you mind posting it. I've tried to use my hoses, but can't get any of them to fit.

110psi

It's highly unlikely you'll get anywhere near 110psi out of that. Many have tried, most fail. More trouble than it's worth.

In effect I had a 300HP compressor that struggled to put even 90psi in the tires, I needed 115 and 100. I bought a Husky 150 for just over $100. It's only a little bit quieter than the C7 but it works extremely well. It reaches 150psi in a surprisingly short time.
