HWH air compressor control wiring question

My compressor will come on when the Key is on but not when the key is off and with the HWH on.
I know the issue is the wire that's not connected needs to be hooked up the the Solenoid battery+ then go to the pressure switch then to Solenoid coil+. That will then turn on the compressor when the tank get to 60 psi and shut off around 90-100.
The wire that is not connected has 2ea ring terminals that match the size of the respective studs.

I would just fell more comfortable verifying this first.

If it was a normal coil connection I'd have done it but it has a circuit board on it with 3 wires that go to the other Solenoids and the HWH control.


Anyone have a similar control system?

So all the HWH literature shows a pressure 85psi cutoff, but I have a 115psi one. So compressor will run till that's reached +-.

I wired up the wire and now it will run with the key off.


So I started at 5psi, ran engine to 110psi and during this time the aux comp also ran. I turned off the engine at 110psi and the aux compressor ran till 117psi and then it stopped. Went out and Comp is hot and 20 amp fuse is blown again.


Trying to run past 100 psi just overheats the compressor and pops the fuse, that's what will eventually kill it.


These compressor are rated 100psi max! Should never be driven to 100psi IMO.


Also the motor really needs a 30amp fuse..TA-4101-DC 28 amps full load.


So I'm going to find a 85psi N/C pressure switch.

Got a new pressure switch 85psi and all works as it should.
I took a amp reading and as I thought the compressor draws upwards of 27 amps as it reaches 90psi.
Replaced the inline fuse with a 30amp. Compressor running cool.
