I bought the airless extenders from CW and had them try to install them. They had such problems that they wound up having to install the "other" type.

You might want to specify whet type of compressor -12 volt or 120 Volt. and are you trying to take it in the RV or at home.

I tried my 110V pancake compressor which cost $250 on my MH tires and it just doesn't have enough volume in the tank. Although it goes up to 120 psi, I think the tire has more volume than the tank and the pressure equalizes and then the compressor is working against the tire and it slows way down. I installed an air hose on the air sysem on my coach and it works great. There were already a couple of outlet fittings in the run bay at the front of the coach.

Gaines, that is the problem with a small compressor and tank. Just the nature of the beast. The only alternative is a much larger tank and compressor.

I bought the 12-Volt 250 lb Truck compressor from CW back in 1999 and although it's slow, it has always pumped up my 22.5 in tires. It's still working today.

If you would like to save money on your monthly water bill I suggest investing in the "Airless Water valve" from El Duque. This valve is worth it, Check out the website, it explains how it works and how it saves you money. I use it and I'm am proud to say It save me cash.

Cheers
