looks like they have a newer model with 100 per cent duty time for about 20.00 more viair 450rp

mel s, my MH is a gas driven MH. Wish I knew when I purchased, what I know now. I would have spent some more and purchased a DP. I received the compressor listed below yesterday and love it. I used it today to get my tire pressures up to spec with the colder temps and it works like a charm. Only weighs 27 pounds so it is easy for me to use. Like I said above, I am handicapped so weight is a factor for me. It has a max pressure of 150 psi and a compressor cutoff pressure of 125 psi, which is plenty for my tires. Can't vouch for the longevity, but so far it works great.

I think that is the case for most of us.

Happy you found a suitable compressor.

I bought a Craftsman Airboss. Costs about $120 & is rated up to 135 PSI. Great little unit, weighs only 25 lbs.

I have a Porter Cable pancake compressor and a 12V high pressure (low volume). Love the Porter Cable. I need not to be in a hurry when using the 12V (had that first). It does the job, just takes it a while.

Check out these compressors; they're available in 12 volt, and 24:

VIAIR Corporation - 12-Volt & 24-Volt Air Compressors and Pneumatic Systems

I'm going to try the single air tank 12 volt version on my rig.
