I-ramble, No experience with that model. Try also looking online at the 4 wheel drive shops. I purchased this portable from 4 wheel supply, $59.00 to re-inflate my Jeep tires after 4 wheelin and it works fine. You did not say what you were using it for.

Del----I'm looking for something to carry with me in my coach, a Holiday Ramble Admiral 30ft and use with its tires of 245/70 19.5. What model of SuperFlow did you buy?

For a car those might be good.. For a mootor home that "3 minutes to fill a tire" might become 30 minutes or more.

Beyond that looks like a decent unit on paper.. I don't have one though. I have a Sears pancake job that is also 150PSI and does a fairly good job

I-ramble, I would not reccomend this for your MH, it would take forever like WA8yxm says. It works fine for my Jeep 5 min per tire. I would go to home depot and look at the Dewalt 200 PSI small compressor, thats what I used to carry with me in my gasser and it would pump up my MH tires very quick.

Looks a lot like the one I bought from Pep Boys, a "Masterflow MF-1050"

Amazon.com: Master Flow MF-1050 Tsunami High Volume Portable Air Compressor: Automotive

Sounds impressive, huh. It works fine, does take a while to pump up a tire from zero to 60psi, maybe 10-15 minutes, but it does work ok. My preference is for battery clips instaed of a 12V plug-in adapter but that's just my preference. It works great for bringing up tire pressure from 10-15 lbs low. The gauge on it is not accurate, however. I rely on a good hand held tire gauge. (and my newly installed TPMS of course)

My suggestion is to go to Home Depot and buy a tankless compressor normally used for paint sprayers. It's 110 volt so you'll have to use the genset but it will rather quickly top tires up to about 125psi. I've had and used one for about 10 years. compact too.

Sears also has a small compresor that will do 125 psi. I had one for my Winnebago Brave. I now have a diesel with an air outlet, so I don't need it. I sold it. The compressor is pretty small and is 120 volts, so you need your generator. Price is less than $100.00 and is frequently on sale.

IMO, a 12 volt compressor will be ineffective for large tires like your motorhome has, even for just topping off the pressures.

I agree with KIX and W8RLM - go to Home Depot, Lowe's or Sears and get a small 120 volt model. You'll have to start the genset if you're not hooked up to shore power, but it will be much better for big tires.

I have a tankless model from Sears that isn't made anymore, but there are several others out there. HERE is one that looks just like mine, except this one has a 1.5 gallon tank. It is pretty compact, and it puts out 2 CFM at 90 PSI, which is pretty good for it's size. It only takes me a minute or so to add 4 or 5 PSI to a 22.5" tire.

I have the MV-50... works well for the truck & 5er. This unit connects to a battery, thus giving more AMP power than those that plug into the cigarette lighter.

Eh!

I got a small dewalt 1 gallon deal off Amazon for $56 shipped.
Good for ~135psi.
Combined with a nice hose I made and the coupling that locks on the valve stem
... pretty much a "set and forget" system. The regulator on the compressor saves me the trouble of crouching for minutes.
Aired up a 100psi tire from 20psi in under 3 minutes under load.

A 12-volt compressor will inflate a motorhome tire but it will take forever and you'll burn out the device in a couple of years (or less). The last one we killed was a 12-volt model sold at Sears for around $100 (possibly the one mentioned in this thread).

Buy a used pancake style compressor that plugs into the 120 volt outside receptacle of your motorhome. They're light and reliable. They're also designed for demanding jobs like filling 19.5 inch tires to 90 psi or more. We bought a slightly used ("returned") model at Sears for around $45. Works like a charm. Best of luck.

Jack
