I took a ~6" piece of old garden hose (male end), used a hose clamp and an air tool 3/8" male quick disconnect at the other end. At the end of my compressor's hose I have the female quick disconnect fitting. I connect the hose end to my camper, inner lock the quick disconnects and turn on the compressor. That seems to work great.
may i ask if you can post a picture of your setup for the hose? i was looking the other day at compressors and the other gagets to go with it. i am more interested in the connection to hook to the camper then anything. just not sure what i am looking for i guess. what can i say i confess i am female and new to the air compressor world.
