Airing Tires With Coach Suppressor

I tried to add air to my front tires, right at 112 left 119 currently, but the compressor did not seem strong enough for the job. How do you add air when more than 110 psi is needed?

Also, if a tire is at 110 cold and 125 hot when stopped at a truck stop is it safe to add 10 psi to the hot tire weight.

Thanks guys,
Mike

Mike, I wouldn't add to a hot tire.
Pat Bauer had a good post on here a month or so ago about airing tires with the coach compressor. I believe it went like this. You need a air Chuck that snaps on to the valve stem so it'll stay. Then start the motor home and pump the brakes to get the mh compressor to come on then put the engine in high idle. Doing it this way makes the tire part of the air system and the compressor will air the tire to whatever cutout is, probably around 120-130. You'll then need to check the tire pressure and if needed let some air out. I haven't tried it on the front tires, but I did on one of the drive axle tires and it worked like a charm. Noel

You may want to look at this post. An air booster may be the way to go.

WOW--don't mean this to be a put down but my experience is that even the most basic diesel coach has the equip/system. to inflate a tire--without any special procedures. Does your compressor top out at less than 130 psi or not kick back in soon enough???? Just as a side note, this is a similar issue with a lot of small stand alone compressors you could buy--so you have to continuously bleed off the tank to keep the compressor running.

Mine won't either which is the reason I laid out about $150 for a battery powered compressor (recommended by Pat Bauer). It is slow, but it will take your steers to 125 or 130 pounds easily. I am not willing to do what is suggested to get the coach compressor to do the job.

If you'll do the above procedure that Pat Bauer came up with I think you'll find you can air your tires with no problem and not spend $$$ on air multipliers or compressors or if you're unwilling like Gary it's your money.

Simply solution, bought used on ebay, airbooster needs no electric.

I have no problem airing up my front tires with coach compressor. I built a 3 piece system...1 line is the air valve, 2 is a pressure gauge, and 3 is a bleeding valve. Start coach and run high idle as suggested. bleed system using the bleed valve (no need to be going back and forth to coach pressing brakes) till compressor cuts in, watch gauge as pressure starts to rise make sure to hook air valve to tire valve. When compressor cuts out unhook before pressure goes down too far and repeat. Most of your inflation will be while your compressor is building pressure so it is important to have it hooked to tire valve at that starting point. A bunch of us here have built this system and it works perfect for me. It is easy to put together. If I can figure how to upload pics I will post a pic. Others have pics uploaded of their systems. No need to carry a compressor taking up space. (My view anyway)

how much are y'all puttin your tires? Weight your coach and you should come a lot less than your placecard on drivers wall says, mine comes in at 110 on front and 90 on the rears. Mine is a 2016 cornerstone and that 15 lbs makes one hell of a difference on tyhe ride, that is what i have found.

I gave up trying on our '02 Dutch Star and bought a Coleman 120 V tank unit from Lowes. Just too much trouble trying to get 120 psi in the front tires. Still using it even though the present rig doesn't need more than 110.

The process I described is quick and painless. It uses DRY air, which is good, and you don't have to carry a compressor.
