Question RV Air Compressors

OK folks,

I'm trying to figure out just what size I need in a portable air compressor to fill my 245-70/19.5 tires! I've got a commercial unit in the garage but it won't fit into a under storage unit. (Way too big!) Anyway- - trying to find out using pressures and other info is a &^#$@. I've tried to talk to technicians at some of the companies that sell air compressors and don't really get any information. I don't think an air brush compressor will work to fill tires. So- - - does anyone out there carry one and use it?

Thanks

I use the Sears unit pointed to further up the thread - an honest 150 PSI that is compact enough to easily fit in our compartments - and light enough that my wife can easily carry it - and the price is right too!

Air compressor info

Just wanted to thank all of those who responded to my question. Now I can go and fetch the air compressor I was looking at. The twin stack from Home Depot. Even got all the hoses and stuff already.

Thanks again!!

Since the word "hurry" is not allowed around our RV, we use this 150psi, 12VDC, air compressor, Search results for: '12V 150 psi air compressor'

I've seen quite a few like that - and have long had a Coleman version for our 5th wheel and tow vehicles thru the years. In that service, while the unit *claimed* to be good to 100 PSI or so, it was really not much more sophisticated or engineered than a motor driven model airplane engine - and ACTUAL delivered PSI was well under 70 or so - and THAT only if we had LOTS of time! BUT, for 35-50 psi and no hurry, it got us by.

The MH, with air bags and tires all up in the 100 PSI range, the "toy" air compressors just won't do...
