Air Coupler Type

What air coupler type is used on the 2014 Tiffin Phaeton? The air coupler I have on my air hose will not go in the air quick connect on the Phaeton.

I used the one that came with my other compressors. There are three different versions if you can find them.

Try depressurizing the system before you plug the air chuck in.

It's a standard fitting that all my air tools and hoses have

The problem is the air system has too much pressure, so it's hard to get the male fitting in. You can buy a brass air shutoff valve at homedepot for a couple bucks.

Dump the air out of your air tanks, take off the existing female quick disconnect. Install the shutoff valve, then reinstall the disconnect. Start the engine to Pressure your system and you should find you are good to go.

Connect your hose and tool before opening the valve. When done, turn the valve off before disconnecting hose.

Drain the pressure , and either change the quick connect to fit the air lines you already have , or take it to NAPA, and get a male end that fits, and dedicate an air line to the coach.

They should have all three types in stock.

Your typical home compressor with quick disconnect fitting might have 50 to 60 lbs pressure behind it. On your coach it will have up to 120 lbs pressure, so it's harder to insert a male fitting unless you put a shutoff valve in the line.
