Just a suggestion for those of with onboard compressors, why not save the space and weight of adding an additional compressor in the bays and use you onboard compressor instead.

I got one from Costco last year. Motorcycle was low every spring, and almost impossible to find a gas station with the right bit to fill it. The label sys 110, but I bet it won't do a 22.5 tire. Guess I will have to get one of the Sears ones.

DO you have an onboard compressor for air bags and brakes? Can't tell the make of your rig form you avatar.

If you have an onboard compressor why not use it instead of purchasing one.

I have seen people use their on-board compressor for inflating tires. It requires a very long hose depending on the exact location of the outlet fitting and how many tires you are dealing with. My trailer tires are way back there which would require an extra long hose. And to top off any 22.5 inch tire it requires that not only your engine is running, the compressor must be running too. That generally requires two people, one outside and one inside pumping the service brakes to activate the compressor.

For me, that's too much trouble to go through all of that versus starting the gen-set, plugging in my portable Husky and topping off the tires wherever needed.

Only my opinion.

Freightliner chassis, I'm sure I do have an onboard, but it would just be easier to have a portable. I'm sure it's easier to deal with an extension cord rather than the extra long bulky compressor hose. My unit is 40 ft, Holiday Rambler Endeavor, DP just for those who wonder.

To eliminate the need for the second person I installed an in-line bleeder valve just before the tire inflator so I can bleed the system down to cause the compressor to run.

I used a 1/4" poly hose rather than the 3/8" rubber hose. 50' coils up 8" in diameter and 5" tall. 50' gets me way more than i need. It's 30' to my rear tires. I only deal with the hose not an extension cord and a compressor. Frees up space and weight. At home I still use the compressor in my garage.

Pawn shop air compressor

2 Gallon Twinstack Air Compressor Item Number: FP2095

There is not a thing wrong with that Craftsman compressor. I was waiting until it went on sale when I ran across one of these little guys at the local pawn shop this summer. He had it marked for $50, I offered him $30 and he took $35. Came with one of those cheap 1/4", coiled, 50' hose and an almost worthless brad nailer. This one works like a new one. You have to watch what you get at these places, but every now and then you can find a deal.

This weekend, I had to beg someone to take one of those yellow coiled hoses off my hands. They're a PIA. Always getting tangled with itself.

If you need anymore coiled hoses, I have a few in the cabinets here in the garage just collecting dust. By the time you stretch one out I'm afraid the tension will rip my compressor loose from it's moorings.

Send me your address and I will ship them right out.

Any One know the Country of Origin for this compressor. Porter Cable compressors are made in the USA.

Not to get "off topic" but when you see Made in USA, that doesn't necessarily mean that ALL of the parts and components were made in the USA. It simply means that it was assembled in the USA.

What I am seeing more of now are products made in China distributed by a significant amount of American companies. No wonder the American public has problems finding jobs, they have all gone overseas where there are no unions, and the people are overjoyed to be able to work and earn a small income even though it may be a measly one as compared to American standards.

We have priced ourselves out of jobs so to speak. And we have no one to blame except ourselves. Greed and fortune will destroy any powerful country which used to be the USA until another one emerges which China is quickly becoming the "New" world leader in more ways than just population.

Sorry about getting Off Topic. Back to the topic at hand, air compressors for our rigs. I own a 155 psi Husky 2 gallon unit purchased from Home Depot which does just OK. These small compact compressors just don't have the guts to inflate a 110 - 120 psi tire quickly or even just topping it off. When using these compressors, you need to make sure it is running full bore when filling or topping off at the higher psi's otherwise you will be waiting a long time.

I have a 2 1/2 gallon, 2 HP, HF compressor and just last weekend, realized I don't have a long enough hose to reach to my trailer tires. Haven't had to use it on the MH tires, but couldn't use my Air/Hydraulic jack when I went to check if I had a brake dragging on the trailer.
