I went with a Lowe's Kobalt 3 gal 1 hp compressor $129. that weighs 34# is pretty compact and has excellent reviews. Some of the 12v air compressors out there will burn up if you run them for more than 5 minutes, so read directions and warnings carefully.

It comes with a 25' x 1/4" hose which I replaced with a higher quality 50' x 1/4" coiled hose for utility and convenience.

Once pressurized, I can quickly check and top-up my 6 coach tires (or the toad) as required, usually with the pump cutting in perhaps once if at all. Here is a link for more details on this unit:

It's really a 2 part reason: Yes 4-5 mins is not that long, longer time if tanks are 0. However at 6 am parked next to a popup, 5 min is an eternity to people trying to sleep.

I try not to be that guy.

SECOND- Boondocking air. I already have 8 house batteries, why not tie into them for air? It's not like 1 or 2 of those compressors running for 10 mins will do anything to my power supply. However, firing up my genny or main engine just to adjust a tires pressure is silly.

i am so sorry i never seen this post

this is where i got the pumps but there now on ebay as well
Train Horn Kits - HornBlasters - www.trainhornkits.net

make sure you get the higher end units made for 100% and 200 psi

the 12v dc air valve for the water burst valve on the RVs dryer i am using is a stander 3 way valve

the 12vdc/24vdc 110ac/ timer/s are from
https://www.automationsource.com/sig...ccount.aspx%3f

it was a timer for working door locks may have to go out and get a part number for looking it up all the way


this system dos not make alot of sound

I also use the Porter Cable (Sears model) thought "scooterbob" posted. It's small, powerful and you don't have to have the coach idling to use it (DP's).

No, it only looks big in the picture.

Look at the dimensions.....

It's only 19.7 inches long x 5.9 inches wide x 13.9 inches high

and that's WITH the 2 gallon air tank ! Only weighs 22.95 pounds


You can get just the 200psi high volume compressor without the tank, but having
the tank full of 200 psi air makes inflating a tire super fast!

FWIW, the Porter-Cable C2004-WK is quieter or has the equivalent noise level as the majority of oil-free electric air compressors with similar specifications available on the market rated at max. 150 psi or greater. Even the Porter-Cable CMB15 shrouded compressor is rated at 79 dBA.
