I purchased a Viair compressor for my DP. Struggled with my normal compressor getting the pressure.

X2 on the Viar. I stuggled to find a small portable compressor to top off my tire to 120 psi until finding Viar. I have the 450P automatic. Although they sell the 400P-RV automatic that is sold for rving the 450P has a 100% duty cycle where the 400P does not and is needed for my large tires.

I have had this compressor for about 6 months and would highly recommend it.

The pancake compressors that many use were just to large for me.

I purchased a of Viair 40047 400P-RV that works like a dream keeping my tires up. It's smaller than a pancake compressor and can work off the house batteries. It's pretty quick adding 5 -10 lbs but I don't think it would do well airing from 0 to 110 psi. And it comes in it's own pouch that stores everything you need.

I keep a pumped up air tank (from Harbor Freight) in my tow vehicle. I will go to a gas station and fill it up if it runs out when I'm away from home.

About every tire needs at least 100 psi so if you buy a 110 psi compressor you will have a time trying to top off. I purchased the egg shaped craftsman 150psi light weight and not big.

If you have room and upper body strength, a oatcake compressor is hard to beat.

Ditto on Clifftall's Craftsman 150 psi.
We also use it to blow our water softener when traveling.
Has worked for 3 years no problems, $120.

Bolted this one into my rear compartment and use a nice flexible 50' hose with it.

What i had that came with the rv from the prev owner........ http://www.amazon.com/Black-Decker-A...XZQ8AD970J1DVA

Only good for car tires or bikes, not for rv tires.

What i got since and works well for the rv tires............... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o05_s00
