Has anyone tried connecting a air hose connection within the compressed air system to use for tire inflation?

My coach came with a fitting for an air hose. It is used to pressure up the system when roadside assistance towing is required.

I use mine all the time to pressure up to 110 psi with no problems. I have a 50 ft air line extension and fittings. I'm fortunate to say that in 3 1/2 years I have only used it 3 times. Once at the stick house and twice on the road when we went from extremely hot to cold weather.

Happy trails.

The odds are that you already have one in your motorhome. Try posting in the Fleetwood owners section and someone will probably be able to help.

Have a nice day - Darrel

Find the air manifold and if there isn't a quick connect already there you can put one in. Mine is located behind a small bay door right inder the driver side window.

Mine has 2 connections up front where the genny is.
One is for towimg, to hook up an air hose to pressurize the aiorbrwake system.
The other is to hook up a hose for fillingtires and such.

I pull a 40 ft 5th wheel trailer with my Cummins 3500 truck. Jackasses are forever pulling in friont of me while merging so I installed a set of Gover air horns that wake the dead. The living just soil their underware. Having a tank and comprssor on board allowed me to reconfigure things so I have a quick release coupling under the passenger side running boards so I can air up tubes, air mattresses, etc. I also included an air pressure gauge on the tank visible under the running board so I can also air up tires. It's a 1/2 horse electric Thomas pump that also is mounted under the truck. It takes a while to air up a large truck tire or 5er tire but it works. Having access to 120 psi compressed air is all worth it while on the road.

You probably have one allready as everyone has said. The tricky part might be getting the right air hose fitting. There are a number of different types. Mine uses a "M" type.

Very good information. There is another option to address the amount of air pressure available with a product Les Schawb in Junction City, Ore. offers... Bob Dickman Tire Center - Les Schwab Dealer located in Junction City, Oregon...
via a pressure multiplier albeit somewhat expensive but I can attest to the fact that it works very well.

Mine is in the front drivers side compartment. If I dump my suspension there is no pressure. I would rather use my 150psi craftsman compressor but in a emergency I would use it.

Porta Cable is the same unit. Sure takes a lot less time and much easier on the hands. My rear tires take 120 psi. I don't think the onboard system would ever get them up to pressure, at least not in my lifetime.

I've had no problems airing up my tires when needed, even to 115PSI I run on the rears. I only use the onboard air when the engine is running and usually only need to add 5 to 10 lbs so it takes maybe a minute per tire. We full time and I have no room to haul a compressor.
