Putting air in your coach tires

Is there a good way to air your tires? and keep your compressor over 100 LB. I have seen some chucks with valve to let air out so the compressor will come up.

My DP onboard air system has no problem topping off my tires at my desired 105 psi. I use a filler with built in gauge so I can see it reach the desired level as I fill it.

I made one of these by drilling a 1/8 inch hole in the side of the valve.
it lets me bleed off the compressor to allow the pump to kick in.
I need 105 & 110lbs in my tires.
This way it can mount inline and is more compact.
Get thd valve at Lowes.

You can use on board air such as posters #2 and #4 have done. Or go buy a small AC powered compressor that will do the job. The disadvantage of on board air is that you have to run the coach. The disadvantages of the AC compressor are cost and it takes up space.

Add me to the list of those that use the on board air compressor system. Works well for me - I haven't had to release air from the system to get the compressor running again like others that I have read about.
