I just got this same one this week. Headed out to the MH yesterday and filled both passenger rears from 50 to 100psi and took less than 10 minutes each. Then one rear on the driver's side was at 30 pounds and that took at least 15 minutes to fill. Wish I had one of the locking tips for that one.
All in all it did a great job although I can't talk about longevity yet. Oh, and it was pretty quiet being not any louder than my truck which it was connected to and idling the whole time. And it was surprisingly cool a few minutes after I was done.

Tire Safety.

Just from reading the many different posts through the winter, I know that we want to be especially vigilant when it comes to our tires. Not only are they expensive, but the damage a blowout will cause to other areas in close proximity, could be worse. Was just thinking about my prior post about % of air loss and re inflating recommendations. Been a few years since I've been directly involved with tire procedures but think OSHA says 20% or lower. That equates to below 80 psi in a 100# inflated tire or below 96# on a tire with 120# inflation pressure. While I personally wouldn't hesitate to re inflate at probably 75%, I sure don't want to stand by the tire in doing so. The second thought, and just as important, if one tire is 30# low and all the others are 10# low, make sure that you get the tire inspected before you head out on your next trip. Not doing so, will increase your chances of a blow out and worse. Safety First and Fun, second. lol :-)

How you going to run it without power or generator? We had a valve stem crack and rear tire lost air. It was a dually and we didn't notice it until rest room stop. Spare was very low. Needed air. Compressor won't run on battery power. This is why I'm considering truck unit. Trucker helped us out.

Sorry about that. Yes, 110 power is required. I have a gen set but also a 2000 watt power inverter that I can readily plug into the system so short term and lower wattage appliances or such is no problem. Love the inverter as can pull off road and brew a pot of coffee or run the microwave . That also will give ample power to run the air compressor when needed.

I went to NAPA and bought a certified one, never use it directly to check the pressure, just to check the accuracy of the others I own.
One of them has an aluminum housing and hoses to set two tires at the same time, supposed to be accurate to 1 psi. I also have a digital one that's supposed to be accurate to psi.
Yes, I'm a fanatic about tire pressures for the motorhome! A good TPMS is also worth the money. Had a TST system in the Dutch Star, the Magna has a Smartire II but they're out of business. Luckily ours is still working, not sure for how much longer though. When it goes I'll just buy some more sensors and put the TST on.

Yes we now have an inverter and 4 batteries in our Teton. We have not tried to run compressor on it but still intend to get truck unit.
