Air Compressor

Looking for a new air compressor for my National Tradewinds class A. My current compressor is great for tools and my car tires but it takes too long to air up the MH tires to 100psi. Looking for suggestions for one that I can carry in one of the MH compartments

Lots of options out there. I have a twin tank compressor that I stripped down so it's just a compressor without any tanks. Works great, fast, compact(sort of) and just a little heavy.

It seems Viair is most popular, but for me, I'll stick with what I have.

Air Compressor

Iíve used this one from HF for about 8 years now with no difficulty. No prob airing my 22.5Ē tires, plus it will run air tools if needed, and lots of other jobs. Plugs into 110VAC. Rides in a Dutch Star belly bay.

I've been using this one for five years and it works great. Adds air to my 22.5 tires fairly quickly and only weighs 20lbs. Porter Cable CMB15 150psi.

That's the one I have & like. Mine sits in a shallow rear bay next to the elec bay. I ran a short elec cord that's plugged into engine preheat outlet unless I want to preheat ( not often). A 25 ft hose allows filling coach & toad tires. A Harbor Freight remnant (~10ft) permanently placed across MH provides air to pass side.

If you do a search of the forums, you'll find this question is a common one. Lost of choices.

Thanks for the input. I bought the Craftsman 150psi and it works good on my tires.

I'll echo Lt. Dan's comments. I also carry in a storage compartment and use a Porter Cable air compressor for my coach. I also use a "locking chuck" which allows the compressor to continually operate while filling the tire (avoid constant start / stop "filling" the tire then waiting for air tank pressure to recover to start filling the tire again).

This is the locking chuck I have that works very well --> https://www.amazon.com/Haltec-CH-350...92990980&psc=1
