I use my portable 12vdc compressor to maintain a +/- 5 psi tire pressure at home or on the road (100 psi front/110 psi rear). I never let my tire condition get bad enough to need any more adjustment than that, if they do I replace them with new tires.

And yes, I need a portable 12vdc compressor to accomplish this.

I have just a Class-C and have a generator so if I need air (when calibrating pressure gauges when I am doing seminars on tires at RV conventions) I use the 110V compressor.
110v compressor is much better choice for pressures of 80 or higher. There are some 12v units out there that can generate 120 psi but they draw heavy current and can run very hot.

My 12vdc compressor develops 145 psi. All compressors get hot!!
