Silly question of the day

I have 2 hookups that are part of my air brake system. Which one can I use to inflate my tires? Top A or Bottom B or C either?

They are just differant connectors. Use the one that corordinates with your hose end. The top is most common..

Bottom one.
Top fitting is probably for tow truck to air up your coach.

It would have to be the bottom one, if you plug the hose into the top one, you would have the wrong end to use the tire chuck to fill the tires. I would follow both lines, to see where they go if you have not yet, to see what the double setup is. The top one is open, unless a check valve is used?

The bottom one. The top one is used to fill the air tanks and allow the parking brake to be released in the event the rig needs to be towed.

Although you'll have air, pretty rough topping off tires that need 110-120 psi with a compressor that kicks on around 90 psi and shuts off around 125 psi. I care a 6 gal 150psi compressor. Now I can top tires as needed.

Bottom one...top is open to receive air from another source. Now I'm wondering where mine is, on my 2001 Dynasty.
