The MH is fairly new to us. Less than two weeks old. I'll have to get down there to see if the valve extenders are on the tire. I do have a quality
Acu Test pressure gauge.

I'm not sure but I would think so. The one I use came with my VIAIR 440RV compressor kit (bought on Amazon.com). You could check Amazon or Camping World for just the guage.

That might be hit or miss. I'd check with a truck stop like Pilot/Flying J or buy one on line.

I'd be interested in hearing what brands of tire inflators forum members have used and think are good. I've been going around and around reading reviews on Amazon that I'm not sure would apply for use on an RV. My tires require 61 psi. Any and all suggestions would be gratefully received by one one who knows nothing about these things. I read about some units that connected to the 12v accessory connection and blew fuses and fried the unit. HELP please!!!

Did you look at the link I provided you in post #2 of this thread?

Sorry, sorry, sorry Rick that I confused you. Yes I did read that thread! I was only hoping to get a number of suggestions especially since I cannot use a gas unit. Maybe I should just refrain from asking anymore questions. It's hard being a newbie and not knowing what's going to be the wrong question in the wrong place at the wrong time. My apologies.

No need to apologize or to stop asking questions. I didn't know if you were asking a new and different question which hadn't been addressed.

Hi monik7,
I would highly recommend one of the VIAIR compressors. If you do a search on Amazon several should come up. Cost wise they are on the higher end but they are built to last. My wife bought me the 440p Rv kit for Father's day last year shortly after we picked up or Cambria. This is a kit specifically built for RV use and is made to fit into the small outside storage bays. It comes withe everything you will need, compressor, 60 feet of hose, quick connects, quality truck tire gauge, all in a nice fitted canvas carry case. The whole kit only takes up half of one of my mid sized bays and weighs about 14 pounds. A lot of people have good luck with the pancake sized Home Depot or Sears branded compressors. I have found that though they are considerably cheaper than the VIAIR and will most likely do the job, they are also heavy, loud, and to large to fit into the smaller storage bays of a class B or C which already have limited storage capabilities. Hope this helps you out.
Todd

Thanks Todd. I'm definitely going to check out the Viair. Sounds like it might be just what I need.
