Is there any reason you cannot have a valve installed off of your compressor on the coach? Is there enough air pressure to blow up coach tires?

On our present coach it came from the factory with an air valve and hose installed to put air in the tires. On our previous coach, I installed an air connection for a hose on the distribution block in the front of the coach.

Freightliner installs the distribution block for the connection feed of air horns and hoses for airing purposes.

You don't mention what chassis/coach you have, but I am guessing that it is a Monaco with a Roadmaster chassis. I would think they do the same as Freightliner.

No reason at all and most diesel chassis come with such a valve installed. Basic pressure in the coach air system is typically about 125 psi, more than enough for coach tires (though it won't inflate very fast above about 105 psi - the air volume is too low for rapid inflation at that much pressure).

Thanks, It's a new coach so I'll have the dealer show me the valve location.
