Because so many folks report the onboard air is slow, and unable to reach higher pressures?

I carry the same system that Dirk and others have. Finding an air system at a gas station while towing is difficult. Besides this gives me something to do while waiting for "Happy Hour".

I think the next time your tires need air on a 95 degree day (with humidity to match), instead of finding a service station, send your wife out there with a manual tire pump to pump 'em up. I'm sure that before she gets the first tire pumped up, she'll understand why you should have an air compressor.

I asked "Santa" for one for Christmas (and got it) after trying to manually pump a nearly flat tire on my pickup to 50 pounds. I quit after spending about 20 minutes (and had only about 20 pounds in the tire) and called my son to bring his compressor over.

Dirk is correct on the coach air hookup being slow and lacking the ability to get the high pressures we may need.

My compressor does the job and does it fast.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
