Use your water pump to blow out your lines.

Menards has a Fini hot dog compressor that works well.


Forgot to add that I have one and got my accessories at Harbor Freight. An inexpensive way to air up stuff.

I use a 1 gallon pancake compressor. Mine came with a brad nail gun on a Black Friday sale and it was $99. Without the nail gun you could get one in $80 range. At Home Depot I also got a 25 foot hose and a I got a tire inflater end with a gauge. I leave it in my side compartment when I travel and run an extension cord to it and the air hose from it to top off tires. Also at home depot I was able to put together an adapter from the air hose to a hose connection to blow out the RV from the water inlet.

I bought a Bostitch 150 PSI Pancake Air Compressor with an accessory kit and a 25' hose for our 31' coach. It's light, well-sized, portable, provides enough pressure, and has a solid capacity. I'll also fill up the tank before trips and it holds the pressure well. The price wasn't bad either.

Here's the compressor on Amazon:

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Bought this 2 years ago and it works fine for the RV, Toad, and Bike tires. $140 at home depot.com. Had mine delivered to the RV park where I was staying at the time. It is great not having to jockey for position at gas stations anymore to fill tires! Ordered an accessory kit with various fittings.

If you have Milwaukee tools, their compact portable inflator is excellent. Won't move a ton of air quickly, but it has no problem with Class C tire pressures, and the battery lasts longer than expected if it's a 3.0 or better. I absolutely love mine. And it's compact and lightweight.
