You about have it covered. The reserve tanks are not large enough to run any heavy duty air tools. The blow gun does come in handy when cleaning the BBQ to blow the burners dry.

I disagree. When I worked for a company that made air brakes, we did a lot of testing in PA, Death Valley, Colorado etc. Test procedures required pulling the wheels and drums after each run for measurements and inspection. Sometimes three times a day. We always used the vehicle's air system to run air guns and jacks. That's a 12 cfm compressor on there with at least three tanks. More capacity than most garage units.

I wish my last MH had that capacity...it did not, I tried with a DA sander. It is hard to inflate a tire to 115 PSI without runnig the engine and letting the air pressure build up to 125 pounds again. And the Spartan chassis I am referring to only has 2 small tanks, not three.

There's usually a supply, a primary, and a secondary tank. Not necessarily located in one place. Sometimes primary and secondary look like one tank but are actually two tanks end to end.

To use air tools you have to run the engine. You also have to have a decent sized hose from tank to tool to avoid restricted flow.
