Tim - I am with you all the way. The unfortunate part is though - HF is not my NEW shopping store - it is my OLD shopping store and the more unfortunate thing is that I can't buy any more of their sale items in the flyer. I already own all of them. Seems like every time I go in there to spend not more than $300 the credit cards always gets hit for over $500. Must be a clerical error.

You did not mention which compressor you got was it the pancake

The air system on my 39K must be messed up. I use it to top off air when needed and do not have the problem some seem to have with dropping air pressure. The pressure gauge shows 120 at the outlet and I air up the tires to 100 psi and the system recharges without me having to dump system air to get the system low enough for the compressor to kick back in.

I have two friends that use converted dive tanks for air supply. They say you can top off and fill a bunch of tires on one charge. They are both car collectors with large collections. Anyone using this? JD

Yeah...my dad does that on his Southwind

They make a tire chuck that connects to the quick release of a bouyancy compensator. (B.C.)

I have an old first stage that I have dedicated to using for air tools. I attached a standard air tool female quick release to a male b.c. Quick release...and I can adjust the first stage pressure somewhat,,,it's set for 150 psi.

Just make sure you securely store the Scuba tank. They can do a lot of damage rolling around and hitting stuff.

I start the engine and plug air line into the front tow air line - Take my time and check the tires - never had to add very much but MH air pressure works fine to keep my tires at 90psi.

I use my onboard air to fill my tires to 105psi on my 39N with no problem too.

I do the same thing Bob, and I never have a problem. I have to say though, that I never try to do all six tires. I usually check them all and top them off at home before I leave.

Here is another alternative. I use a home-made version:

Moreover, my coach compressor outlets are good for no more then 85 PSI where my coach tires need a minimum of 115 PSI.

Moreover when I finally found a truck tire repair place (I think it was a Love's) they told me they couldn't work on motorhomes. I practically had to beg the serviceman to look the other way at my 36,000 GVWR "non-truck" MH and work on it--which he finally agreed to do.

Problem solved. Purchased a 150 PSI compressor from my favorite, favorite new shopping store --Harbor Freight for the grand total of $70. Works like a charm. Plugged it into a 110v supplied by my generator and filled my tires with no problem at all. The compressor fits perfectly in my basement storage compartment. I already had a 30' air line hose that I use with the compressor and that coupled with a long extension cord allows me to easily reach all of my coach tires as well as the tow dolly tires.

Never again will I have to rely on some dirty, grungy truck stop with an air supply that might or might not work, when I'm on the road.
This one??
