I looked at the Viair also but wanted to have something that could handle my air tools. I would still need to run the engine with the Viair so running the Gen on the MH is not much different. I can also use it at the house as a portable.

I may have to check into these compressors, I have a 21 gal 150 PSI at homethat seems to barely get the job done. Seems like at about the 80 PSI mark it neutralizesitself out, nothing goes in or out of the tires.

Have you cranked up the pressure regulator? Have you drained the tank of moisture?

I have one of those at home also, about 30 years old. I have replaced the regulator in it twice because of the same issue you described. Could not get it up to pressure until I replace regulator.

I have this one in front compartment of our fifth wheel. Airs tires up to 110psi quickly, starts off one Honda 2000 generator if needed, runs my air tools also. Takes up little room

Cummins12V98 - yes I have drained the air and moisture out and the regulator is in the full open position and it doesn't seem to help.

Lifemember - Where did you get your replacement regulators from?

Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the OP's thread here...this has been a good source of information for me and hopefully others reading it...

Cvsteed is correct. The Porter Cable 6 gal oil free is perfect It airs my H rated 5er tires to 115psi with no problem. Also fit in my bed tool box on my F350. $129 at Lowes. You can find it on sale from time to time for $99.

If you are hooked into shore power you don't have to run your engine, I checked with Viair to be sure this was true and they told my yes.

I am not familiar with the '2 pump Viair kit'...do you have a link?

Thanks!
