Talk to me about air compressors

Help me find a good compressor and accessories to use on my Forester 3051s. Tires call for 80 psi.

I have been wanting something a little bigger than what I have now.

RIDGID Tri-Stack 5 Gal. Portable Electric Steel Orange Air Compressor-OF50150TS - The Home Depot

I like this one.

The viar fits in a small bag, does 150psi and doesn't require 110.

Not really caring about being 12 volt. Hoping not to spend $300 on something to top my tires of a couple times a year but it looks like I might have to.

It would be helpful if needed on the side of the road.
Slow leak, top it up until you get somewhere to repair it.

There are others for less out there, I do like being able to take just the tanks if that was all I needed.

Move the motor and compressor outside with the tank inside for quick hookups and less noise...

There are lots of options for a 120V compressor. I may get one of these for home when my current compressor gives out.

I just ordered a Viair 400P automatic 12V portable compressor to keep in the truck for pumping up the TT's tires at camp and where it's stored. Of course, it will work for the truck's tires, too. I didn't opt for the RV version because I don't need more than 25' of hose and I opted for the 33% duty cycle 400P vs. the 100% duty cycle 450P because I can't see ever needing to run the compressor for more than 20 minutes constantly.
