WWFan, that set up is pretty cool! I am half way done with my project air compressor. Just hope it stops raining soon!
This is what I have. The ExtremeAire compressor from www.extremeoutback.com
in Vacaville, CA and a 4 gal tank. It is a 4 cfm, 100% duty cycle and up to 150psi unit. The cfm might not be enough for continuouse impact gun use, but the 100% duty cycle helps.
Question that I have is the compressor discharge tubing you have looks like copper. Is that right? How has the copper held up to vibration? I am affraid that copper will crack from the vibration and cause leaks. I was thinking about steal braided lines, but that aint cheap!!! Thanks for you input. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
Tyler! Welcome to iRV2! Glad to have ya here!
Yes...that is a copper line- surprising enough, I was able to re-bend it to EXACTLY what I needed without cutting it. The problem with replacing it is that the compressor is a Hitachi brand, and the fittings on that unit are metric- I tried a metric shop and they said "No!". Soooo....I'll see how long this one makes it.
I do have a couple more things to do to the setup....first, the motor/compressor unit REALLY vibrates the floor of the coach when it's running, so I'm shopping for some isolation mounts at work (we're in the power trans biz). Then, I need to add some lines to the passenger side in front of the wheels, then another to the front for the truck's airbags. Then I'll be done.
Thanks for the comments...we've got a bunch more to do!
