I have the Porter Cable shown earlier in this post. The nice thing about it is that it tops out at 150 psi but, it cuts back in at 125 psi. My tires run from 105 on the front to 115 on the dual rears. There is no problem with inflating them with this compressor. I have it stored in one of the storage bays on my front slide out -- weight is not bad at all at 35 lbs.

I've had one of these for at least 15 years; still works great;
every year or so when it gets a little slow pumping up the tires-----just remove the back and give it a shot of oil on the piston, it will then work as good as new.

Porter Cable compressor...

The Diesel folks swear by this one. It'll get the 125psi required for them.

Here is a re-conditioned unit for $120 + $3 shipping.

I have a 2 gallon C-H 100psi. It is very slow to build pressure and it only gets to 90psi in the tires.

I'm making room for the new unit in the MH as I write this. I'm going to add a shelf in my electrical bay and lay the P-C on it's side (it's oiless). I can't handle the height of 18".

You might one of these chucks to use while airing your tires. It locks on to the valve stem. You can set the "line/output" pressure on your compressor for the pressure you desire, go eat lunch and it'll be done .

Good luck with your choice,
I ordered the Porter Cable reconditioned unit, about a week ago, after talking to one of the customer service people. They say that there should be no problem filling large RV tires. If not they will take it back. I have bought a lot of reconditioned goods without a problem.

Built in air compressor

I have a 2007 Damon Tuscany 4074 which I have had only a few months. It has a quick connect air supply in the front compartment which I have heard can be used to supply air to the tires. Since the instrument on the dash reports 120 lbs of pressure while the engine is running, I assume that this would be sufficient for keeping the tire pressure up to the 100 plus lbs pressure that is recommended for the tires.
At this time I have not yet had a chance to test it out. Does anyone have any experience with using the built in air compressor?

I use the DeWalt Emgo at home and it is portable. Had it for 3 years no problems.

Diesel coaches have a air compressor. If the govenor is set at the at the reccomended pressure of (120 psi) use it. Just hook up a air line to the accessory tank and plumb it to a convienent location, carry a hose to reach around the coach. Start engine and use one of the clip on inflators and it works great and does not take up storage space, and there is less wt. Bring rpm up to about a 1000 and it will do a fine job.

We use a Campbell Hausfield with a 12V battery built in. No cords. Carry it from place to place. Had no trouble pumping the RV tires up, but then I switched to Nitrogen and never had any further pressure loss problems. So, from then on, it was used (with a blower nozzle) to blow out bugs from the hot water, furnace and frig areas. Also of course used for the bikes and the toad tires.

Thanks for the post.
Just needed a little reassurance.

I have a 07 Safari Simba. My manual says that I could only get 90 psi
from that connection, so it is not suitable for me when I want 110 psi.

This comment from Dewalt:

"We do not recommend the 1 gallon D55140 compressor to air up tires on a RV. The motor may continuously run and therefore it could overheat and fail."

I use a 125 psi 2 gallon air compressor from Sears that I bought for $99. It will air up my RV tires @ 105 psi with no problem. It is a very small compressor that easily stores in a basement bin.

Why do you need a portable compressor when every gas station has compressed air to use to pump tires? (Please forgive the newbie question.)

No answer needed; after the first trip to fill the tires he will have his answer.
