Help!

I have ordered a Hadley Bully air horn kit, compressor, tank, horns, hose to top off tires, etc., and now am looking for a place to mount all the pieces parts.

I have read Drivers solution, and it will not work well for me for two reasons: The tank has a gauge on top and a connection for the utility hose, and I want it in a convenient location where I can check the gauge and connect the hose. Also, the instructions say to keep the compressor where it won't be exposed to road spray (salt, dirt, water).

If you have a Hadley system with the utility hose, where did you (or the installer) mount the compressor and tank? Is it working well for you (low noise, easy access to the air connection)?

Thanks,
Mark

I had these challenges as well however I've been running my air horns for 3 years in the locations that you see in my install and I haven't had any problems with the horns.

Do mount the compressor on the most solid piece of framing on the front of the motorhome because it does vibrate a lot and when mounted to the 1/4" steel structure on it's rubber isolators dampens the vibrations considerably.

Don't forget to use an ample amount of split conduit for the hoses and wires as well. You can get this stuff from Advanced or other quality auto parts stores.

Good luck!

Mark;
Where ever you put it make sure you can get at it later. My tank got water in it and the water cruds up the 12v solenoid causing the air horn to not work and sometimes stick. Hadley on their web site has instructions for cleaning the plunger in the valve. I asked a tech why they don't put a drain valve on the bottom of the tank to drain off excessive water? Their answer was that these tanks are often mounted where owners can't get to for draining. I asked if owners can't get to the tanks than how are they going to clean the valve? No answer.

I removed my tank and cleaned red rusty water out of it. I cleaned the valve also and now everything works good. I only have 16,000 miles on my coach. I am looking for a brass drain valve to install on the tank bottom.
