This little compressor adds about 1 pound of air every 13-15 seconds and will easily go to 115 pounds. The chuck locks onto the tire so you don't have to hold onto it. The built-in gauge bounces around when the compressor is running, but it you can get pretty close with it. Once you turn it off, it's pretty accurate.

I use an old pillow case as a cover and then store it in my bay. Great compressor!
I must have gotten a bad one, I run 110 psi in my tires, after the compressor got the psi to 105 getting to 110 psi was like watching grass grow. I took it back and now have a valve on the RV air compressor that works better for me.

Look at your air system specs. This is the number you need to be concerned with:

Delivers 2.5 SCFM at 90 psi

The delivery SCFM Standard Cubic Feet per Minute. I went through three air compressors before I figured that out.

You need a compressor like the Sears another member posted earlier on this thread, or I bought this one from Home Depot and it works beautifully.

Trim Plus 3-Gallon Electric Air Compressor-H1503TP at The Home Depot

Hope this helps!

Hi everyone! Sorry so long in responding to your comments. I've been out of town for a week or so.

Mike, thanks for the video. I will definitely make up one of those! One question. Does anyone know where I can find one of the air chucks that will latch on the valve stem? I checked at Auto Zone, Lowes, and Home Depot today and nobody had one.

I have had a problem with one tire losing air frequently but I finally got that fixed a couple of days ago. Hopefully I will not need to air them as often now.

I have one of the VIAIR portable compressors rated at 150 PSI but it still takes forever with it.

Thank all of you for your suggestions!

I need one of those locking air nozzles, so it will just stay on the stem instead of bending my big ole butt down there holding it on the valve stem.....That's a good deal Mike2007!

filling off the coaches air is a pain in the backside. 1st you must have the coaches compressor running, then air up the tires. Still takes time. It is much easier and faster to buy an air compressor and use it as a stand alone unit. the sears unit is often on sale via the web for 59 to 79 bucks. ed
