130 Psi on the front sounds very high? What size is your coach? Are you going by the tire load chart and weight for your coach?
95 in the rear and 105 in the front sounds more in line. IMHO
Maximum pressure on most 22.5" rims is 120 Psi. Your on board compressor is governed to about 120 Psi so you won't be able to get to 130.

Dennis, I thought 130 was a little high as well, but the Entegra's are running larger front tires and many I have seen posted are running 120-125 after being weighed. On my TS the compressor was governed at 120 PSI and showed that on the gauges. The number of air tests I did on the Entegra going through the air leaks, the gauges show approx 140 PSI. What are other Entegra owners showing for air pressure?

The tool you showed earlier is almost a must. I could air the front TS tires at 105 with just one time pumping of the brake peddle, but I know I won't be able to do that with the Entegra. JMO, but making that gauge is easier than carrying another compressor on board. I am already loosing one basement compartment because of emissions and the Agua Hot not leaving much room for another compressor.

What size: 1/4 or 3/8 hardware? Forgive me ... I'm a "call the repair man" consumer, but I need the hose in case of road problems.

Thanks in advance.

1/4 inch is fine for airing tires. 3/8 if using high volume air tools which an on board compressor would not run very well.

Thanks Corey. Went to Lowes yesterday to buy a hose and hardware and realized there were options I hadn't considered. The photo of the homemade hardware will come in handy.

Preparing for 8k trip to the WC and I am hoping that I will not need the hose or the "device" at any point along the way.

Thanks for the photos Corey, that make it easier to copy and take to Lowe's for the parts.

There is no reason why you can't blow out the water lines with the onboard compressor IF you do put a regulator in the line. What I would do put couplers on either end of the regulator (male and female) and attach it to the end of my air line much like the arrangement we have seen for filling tires. Obviously, you have to have another fitting to attach the waterline as well.

You could also put it inline with that attachment to regulate your air pressure down for filling toad tires or bicycle tires without fear of overinflating

Air

I understand the dilemma about compressors or not, or the air filling adapter or not. On the other post there is discussion of a air multiplier gadget that is kind of spendy. If you really need high pressure air and don't want to mess around buy one of these PowerTank setups. I've used one for Jeeps and they have no problems airing up to 130 psi.

I actually thought about this when I made the original post and had a chuckled (pun intended). I thought that this was a real dumb question to have to ask. But thanks for the additional snicker.
