Air compressors

Is there a good portable air compressor that can handle putting 110 lbs of air in my RV tires. My compressor isn’t up for the job. Is a pancake type rated at 150-165 psi capable of doing this.

You can always pull it out of your rig. There should be an air connector up front by the genset.

Yes I have done that on the road several times. This would be at my garage when I don’t want to fire the rig up. Thanks

This what I purchased from HD. They periodically have it on sale for $99.

I then went to HF and purchased the following which I put on a slip mount near the compressor. Cost @$60 when on sale

After adding the necessary fittings, it works great. Don't have to run the motorhome to air up the tanks and when not on shore power, I just run the generator.

Here's what I carry:

Seems to work okay for topping off my 12R22.5 tires.

If you want to keep your existing compressor, consider getting an air doubler. It will plug into that compressor or the coach’s air, very compact and light. May not be the least expensive way to go, however.

I got mine from “ bob dickman tires”. Bob Dickman Tire Center I just checked and they are updating their website so couldn’t get current information.

I think this is probably the best out there. Pricey, yes, but you get what you pay for!

Yes but is a Viair a good unit for other apps, like running a paint gun or impact wrench?

Viair is a very good unit, but NO it wont,at least not enough to be useful in most cases and neither are the other options listed at least not run a spray gun or a impact wrench for more than a minute and probably even less... they don't have enough legs to keep up volume wise ...nor the storage capability.


Happy Trails

I carry the Porter Cable model referenced above. It presses up my tires just fine and the footprint isn't too bad.

The $118 P Cable ^^^ is all you need if just airing your tires. IF on occasion you want to run a impact you need 130+ psi, a 10 gallon tank and a 1/2” hose...$200. You only need 40-50 psi for spray painting so a 10 gallon tank will last a long time before the compressor kicks on.
