Small air compressor

I've gone through 2 Home Depot small 12 v air compressors. Crappy plastic fitting for the infiltrator to tire stem connection keeps breaking for one issue and it shuts down after maybe 5 mins of continues run time, I know it is a safety feature and suppose to do that to avoid over heating.

so I'm looking for a small AC/DC if possible infiltrator/tire filler. I see the pancake style and few others in the 1.5 gallon range but too much for my C Class. She's getting fat in her old age.

What are you guys using?

I use a $50. Wal-Mart, 120 volt compressor on my Class C tires.

Comming from a career in heavy equipment repair, it's a joke, as far as a compressor but it's light and tops off the tires.

The noisey thing has done it's job for almost 3 years now.

This is what we bought a few years ago. It has topped off the RV tires several times, running non-stop for 5-10 minutes for each tire. Also can jump start the rv and has a 12 volt socket and a USB port. Also has an led light.

Over the years I have gone through 3 Truck Air 12 volt compressors, they did a good job in topping off the tires, but you can no longer find them.

So I bit the bullet, since my old Truck Air would not top off my tires to 110 lbs, I bought the one above, Porter Cable 120v 1.5 gal compressor.

It's only 120 volts but I can always have 120 volts either at campgrounds or my generator.

Does a great job

Ron

Is there a way to put a dual chuck on the Sears/Porter Cable, for filling the dual rear tires?

I installed quick connects in mine. Use whatever chuck or tool I want. Usually has a good Milton attached.
