Thanks for any insight.
Thanks for asking the question. I was wondering the same thing! Didn't want my compressor to become obsolete.

As I've posted elsewhere, based on my research while I worked at Boeing - unless your RV can do 150 mph for 2 miles with a dragging brake and then retract the wheels, you don't need to spend the money on nitrogen. It's a scam!

Airplanes can do the above and have had some nasty accidents as a result, including a fatal crash of a Swissair Caravelle (68 people killed). That's why airplanes use nitrogen for tire inflation.

After RV Wholesalers sent me on my way with underinflated Nitrogen filled tires which burst after only 250 miles I am refilling the new ones I had to buy (dig) .............with Nitrous Oxide so we can have a good laugh at the experience
