Went to let the RV down of the levelers and right front kept going about five years ago. Drove up to Sears and bought a Craftsman/Porter Cable diaphragm 150 and haven't regretted it. A little slow on the fill rate on the 22.5s, but it got the job done and is a fixture in the storage bay. Forget now what I paid for it, but it saved the day. Also learned that it a good idea to carry a valve core tool. Turns out the core was loose and a half turn fixed the problem.

I bought the high flow rate model Pt# 20008 from Amazon.

I think it cost me about $350.00 by the time I had bought the extras to wire it up. I have mine hard wired to a pair of cheap jumper cables with the alligator clips on one end, so I can attach it directly to the battery terminals.

I noted at the time, I could have bought a reconditioned one for significantly less.

Nope. Look at the fill rates for a two gallon air storage tank.

Apparently most people here are not familiar with the Viair compressors. Viair compressors are the Cadillac of 12V compressors and are very popular with the off-road crowd. These are the guys that air down their huge tires to very low pressures for rock crawling, then air them back up when they hit the road home. It takes a lot of air and Viair is one of the few 12V compressors up to the task. If you can afford or justify the expense of a Viair, you won't be disappointed. They are very high quality, high performance, and with a price to match.
