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.

WWFan is probably out camping this weekend. I'm sure he'll answer your question next week. In the meantime I noticed this is your first post so let me welcome you to the forum.

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!

Sean

OK....just about done with the piping for all my air points. Wow...soooo many trips under the darn coach, I'm stiff...but I think it turned out pretty good (if I do say so myself! )...

Here's the front air point- I decided to mount it in the front compartment so I can keep the coiled airline hooked up. This will be for airing up the airbags on the truck:




Next is the line TO the front....I was able to tuck it up inside the frame rail:


This is where all the commotion is- the line staring you in the face is the push-loc hose from the regulator to the main line:



I still have to add the back line to the other side's (curside) air point- this will be for airing up the tires and misc stuff. I plan on adding another $20 toolbox like I have all the guts in on the other side to house another coilhose- the air point will be inside the toolbox. I would have finished it up today, but I just don't have the toolbox yet- and I don't want to make it a $30 toolbox by using $10 in fuel to go get it!

Sean
