Maintaining tire pressure

Just purchased a used PAce Arrow that calls for 100PSI. My home compressor only hits about 80 and a couple of gas stations I have been to are even less. What approach(s) are being used by owners to manage pressure (espeically on the road).

Thanks.....Bill and Carolyn

Also check at Harbor Freight or at a local pawn shop. I picked up a nice one at a pawn shop for under $50.

Whatever you end up purchasing, just make sure that it has the capability of 150 - 155 psi.

I started with a Husky 125 psi and it would not handle the 110 psi I put in my rears and it would barely handle the 105 psi for my front tires.

I switched to a 155 psi Husky from Home Depot and it handles all tires well.

Yup, just buy one capable of filling your tires and carry it with you. Our MH is smaller and I got by with a smaller 125 PSI compressor. I think it was 50 bucks on sale and worth every penny of that to me. Good luck in hunting.

Hi and welcome to the forum. Good advice on the compressor but make sure to get your rig weighed and then determine the proper tire pressure based on the tire mfgr's inflation tables.

Best of luck

Rick

I use the onboard air compressor to inflate the motor home tires as well as bicycle tires, etc. Works great and nothing extra to carry.

Yes, I use the compressor on my MH all the time. It makes no sense to me to buy a portable compressor. If I'm at a CG, I only use it during the day so the engine running does not disturb my neighbors (hopefully). Works for me!

I use the on board compressor also. I need room for my fishing gear and have no extra space for an air compressor that is not necessary. IMHOP

I believe that the OP's motorhome is a gasser, and probably does not have air.

That's what happens when a person is talking without engaging the brain.......
