ResQ Max Tire Repair Kit Professional Air Compressor & Sealant for Larger Vehicles

Has anyone heard of this device (ResQ Max Tire Repair Kit Professional Air Compressor & Sealant for Larger Vehicles) or had any experience with it?

Camping World is advertising the sealant refill, but you need their compressor (about $80) to pump the sealant into the tire.

Also read the maximum pressure is 87 PSI.

Thanks
John

I read a couple descriptions on different sites and it states it for SUV, Trucks and Vans.

I would be hesitant to use on a large Class A.

Don't know if you've ever used any type of sealant. I did use 1 time in a Suburban ~20 years ago. It sealed the tire great but later when I had new tires put on and they pulled that tire apart the rim was so rusted the shop wouldn't mount a new tire on it. Evidently that sealant was very corrosive. I have never used any type of sealant again, however I do carry a can in my truck in case co emergency.

The use of sealants has come up several times over the years. While there may be some validity in using it in an emergency situation there are also drawbacks.

The last time this subject was visited there was some input from tire manufacturers representatives. In essence they were saying that none of the manufacturers they were aware of would honor a warranty if the tire had been filled with sealant.

I can't attest to the accuracy of the statements, however I would check it out before using it. The last thing you want to do is either put something in the tire that can't be removed later to perform a proper repair, or have the manufacturer refuse to warranty a tire for the same reason.

Thank you for the responses so far. First, let me say I am not a fan of tire sealant; however, I can see a benefit to this system, especially when I do not have a spare. Camping World sells the product and under the description section it states, "Non-toxic, non-combustible tire sealant applies without removing the valve core to repair punctures up to 1/4" in size. Won’t cause rust or corrosion on any type of rim. Compressor inflates even larger tires in only minutes and features a 20' coiled air hose, built-in pressure gauge, deflate button, alligator clamp battery connectors and adapters for bike tires, sports balls and inflatables. Everything stores in a convenient 10 1/4"H x 11 3/8"W x 3 7/8"D zipper carry bag."

I went to the manufacturer's website and found the following;

"AirMan's industry leading tire sealant technology is designed to seal punctures up to 6mm, ensuring the highest quality tire repair solution on the market. The AirMan sealant is based on particle gel technology, which consists mostly of water, and biodegradable supplements. It can easily be rinsed off the tire using water."

"The selant does not rust or cause corrosion on any part of the rim, nor does it contain any toxic or flammable ingredients. AirMan's tire sealant is TPMS safe, and approved by the largest automotive manufacturers in the world."
