Yeah. I learned to just not expect it to be a quick procedure. Think about the steak you're gonna grill that night, and pretty soon you've got another psi or two in that tire.

Some days the supply of cuss words is insufficient to meet my demands.

I have never used the onboard, but do know the procedure to pump the breaks and only fill when the pressure is high. I have a couple of compressors in the S&Bs but they are just a little shy of doing a fast job. My local Les Schwab in WA (who I bought the tires from) can check the MH and Toad in less than 15 min, and I get free Pop Corn. At the other end of my travel the local Pueblo Tire Dealer provides the same service with a smile and say Welcome Back Winter Texan.


Life is Good!

It is usually never a problem for me with either the on-board compressor or my garage compressor.
I have a inlet pressure gauge and a air release valve.
When ready for a tire, i release enough air to make the compressors kick in.
As soon as the input pressure is above the current tire pressure, I start inflating.

I usually hit the target pressure on the first round because I usually only need yo add 3 or 4 lbs.

Regards,
Dan

There is definitely something to be said about the benefits or "Colorful" words.

Saying "Darn it" just does not have the healing power of @#$%&:"$#@!!!!.

There was a study done where people placed their hand in a bucket of ice water.

Those that were allowed to cuss, were able to keep their hand in the bucket longer on average
Than those that did not cuss.

Science does not lie

I too quickly run out of cuss words and invent many of my own!

Why - when it feels good and reduces stress. Cuss words not swear words. It is the emphasis not the word that is the release.

Otherwise would have to throw a wrench or golf club. And then go get it. Watched a fellow throw his golf club once. Pointed out to him that he should throw it towards the ball not away from it.

Your own portable compressor is the easy way to go.

My wife says that if it weren't for cuss words my vocabulary would be severely limited.

I just keep my blow gun handy to bleed the air down to get the compressor going. I then put on the air chuck and it hardly costs a word.
