Looks good and flexible for what I will use it for.

The last goodyear rubber hose I got from harbor leaves my hands all black.....
Get the orange/yellow one instead. I have 2 - 25's and a 50 footer

This compressor works great with air tools. I run this compressor in our fifth wheel using a xantax 1000 inverter connected to the batteries and can use an air impact gun to easily change tires on the road. Compressor works well with airtools but not a lot of reserve tank for anything heavy duty.

This is the answer I was looking for, can one use the AC to change the tires on the RV's, therefore I will purchase one, as the footprint is small and no not doing any major repairs on the road.I have a huge AC in my garage.But like to purchase a small one.

I bought the craftsman last fall/summer and love it and so do the people that camp close to me or the people that hear it running or see it outside the basement or kids on bikes with slack tires or pretty young ladies with a swim float or an air matress that needs air or guys with slack tires on their toad or their Motor home or kids with a half flat soccer ball, basket ball, football or about anything else that takes air. I even use it myself now and I air up my tires before leaving on trips. It is kinda amazing how much air your tires lose after your coach sits for a couple months. We have the 19.5 inch tires and the little compressor will pump them up nicely. I have found that it is easier to get to the 'stems' by removing the hub caps and using the long ''trucker'' type nozzle for the tires. As to the ''coiled hose'' that is the first thing I threw away. I went to harbor freight and bought a ''blue 50 foot hose'' and it works real good and now I can just leave the compressor in the basement and the hose will reach all the tires on my 33 foot coach. One word of advise. If you dont want to meet pretty girls in tiny bathing suits in campgrounds that need air in an air mattress or some kind of ''water toy''.... KEEP YOUR COMPRESSOR HIDDEN IN YOUR BASEMENT. Life is tough sometimes.

I think we should start minding our business and let these other countries make their own destiny........ BRING OUR TROOPS HOME TODAY.

I just bought this Craftsman compressor today(150psi). This 15 minute break in being discussed must be a thing of the past...no such instructions in the owners manual. I did it anyway because well, it just makes sense. I agree with Seajay, that cheap hose has got to go.

I have a 'pancake' compressor I've been lugging around (at least 40lbs.)so I'm glad for the weight reduction for my back and the front compartment of the coach as well. All last summer I only used it maybe twice(no bikini clad babes for me), so this new Sear's job is very welcome. BTW, when you buy it in the store, it's $89.95 so I ended up buying the 3 year purchase protection for $13.50 should it go toes up. Bob

This Sears compressor has got to be one of the best for use in a motor home. I have an earlier version and it came with six feet of straight air hose and about a 20' power cord.
