RV 120VAC Portable Tire Inflator

I am looking to buy a heavy duty 120 VAC RV portable Tire inflator, can anyone recommend one? Most of models are 12V but that is impossible to use on all RV tires. Anyone using a 120 to 12V adapter capable of current required by inflator?

Many posts on carrying a 120v portable air compressor for motor home tire inflation.

I carry a HP 120 psi , unit ; others have up to 150 psi capability.

I'll see if I can link you to one of the other posts.

EDIT:

Best Portable RV Air Compressor

Are you asking about powering a 120v air compressor through an inverter , from your battery bank?
If I ever needed to use the compressor when I'm not on shore power;( never had this happen ) ; I'd run the gen set. But if you don't have a gen set , inverter would be required.

Why not a 12v air pump that actually works?

I use this one, got it on Amazon, Sears sells same one branded Craftsman. Does great job also very light weight. Install a quick change chuck available as kits with different nozzles and devices, Walmart, Farm/Fleet, Tractor supply, etc etc..

It would help if we knew the type of RV and the tire pressure required..
