RV air compressor

Here is a current thread on the issue. If you do a search in the top search box you will come up with dozens of suggestions. I just bought the compressor package shown. It is not a speed demon but much faster than trying to run the engine compressor. Idle time on the new catalytic engines is not a good thing.

Not having an "on board" Compressor I've never done that. I have a 4 Gallon 159 PSI (Ok supposed to be 150 but actually hits 159)

Have found a standard angel head (There are a couple different angles) and a handle from a bottle jack (or length of pipe about 1/2 inch OD) helps...

For the outside tire I can position and pull it works fine.
But for the rear one I position and can not really get a good push angle.. So I position the pipe against the head and push on it. Works great.

Yes it takes a while.

One of these days (After I put a new engine in) I'll have to replace the tires (like the next week) and when I do that DUALY VALVES will be installed.

By DUALY VALVES do you mean something like the Cat's eye or Crossfire tire pressure equalizers?
I've been using the same set of Link Cat's Eye® equalizers on my rear dualys since '02: Cat's Eye® - Link

What happens when you have a rear tire blow out or fast leak, does the remaining tire have air loss also?

With the Link Cat Eye equlizers "If corrective action is not taken, the "eye" will open up completely, activating the internal check valve. The internal check valve will prevent the good tire from going flat in the case of a tire blowout or a broken pressure hose."
See: Link Cat Eye Tire Pressure System | Dual Wheel Tire Equalization Monitors

So my question with this is... it is better to cuss and leave your hand in a bucket of ice water or to not cuss and remove your hand to comfortable temperature? I'd cuss if there was a gold buillon in the bottom of it.

Based on an idea posted by a member of another forum, I assembled an inflator with a bleeder valve as shown in the attached picture.

The red handled ball valve allows me to bleed off enough air to get the compressor started as needed. This of course means I don't have to go into the coach and apply the service brake to do it.

The gauge shows me the air pressure in the system.

Here is a tip, you can drill a 3/16 hole is the side of your valve (where the ball is). This makes it a two way valve. When the handle is in the middle, air is released from the hole. this allows the valve to be inline with the hose...and less bulky.

Regards,
Dan
