Air compressor in storage bay

I have a 2002 Winnebago Sightseer 30b F53. Question I have an air compressor inside of the storage bay next to the entry steps. I don not see where the lines go, and what It is to do. I works but don't know where the air goes, so I do not turn it on. I took a picture it has a number 25-1730-30. Caution sticker says it must be drained after each use. Failure to drain tank may cause braking system failure. Any suggestions what does and where the line might go. It has regular brakes. the vin is 1FCMF53S520A3599

Shot in the dark it is for a toad air brake system. Look and see if there is a connector near your trailer hitch.

Does the compressor look anything like this? If so it's a compressor for a Roadmaster towed vehicle braking system.

If it's for a braking system, there should be a fitting similar to the one at the top left mounted in a bracket on the rear bumper or frame.

I had a compressor in the same area in my 1999 Mini. It was for a toad brake system. There was also a small indicator light low on the dash near the steering wheel. In addition there was a pressure sensor on the brake line and a air connection in the back to connect to the toad. . Hope this helps.

Air Compressor

M&G also offer a compressor to use with their braking systems. I have one on my gasoline motorhome. I have been using a system like this for the past 14 years. I have never thought of using the compressor to inflate tires. I am not sure if it produces enough pressure.
