Air compressor

Does the Berkshire have a compressor with a way to use it to air tires like numerous other MH's do???? I read in the spec sheet that there is a 13.2 CFM air compressor on board...

I've looked all in the area up front where the gen slides out and I can't find anything that appears to be something to hook a hose to....

If u have air brakes then yes!

Find your air reserve tanks and install an air chuck.
Done deal.

Yes. Next to the genny. There is a air coupler. Hook a hose to it and you can fill your tires. Make sure the engine is running.

X2- mine is up and to the right of the generator, on the fire wall, when you are looking at the coach from the front.

Mine is up to the left of the generator. You may need to bend down a little to see it since it's probably like mine, up behind the top of the opening.

Ok guys.... Is this the fitting that I need to remove a plug from and replace it with a quick-connect fitting??? If so, I guess I need to drop the levelers so that will deflate the air bags and relieve some of the pressure???? I don't want the plug to "plug" me when I unscrew it...

Your tanks should have drains on them .
If not keep depressing foot brake till all air is exhausted.

No, that's not it. Don't remove anything just yet. Mine already had the quick connect connector on it.

Wish I had the coach here. I'd take a picture of mine, but it at the storage facility right now.

What is the year and model of your coach?

You are looking for this attached to a black pipe. Nothing else is on the line. Yours may be steel or brass.

yes that is the connector. Forest River put a connector on some coaches and not others. Mine had one, my buddys did not. Be sure that all the air is bled out of your systeb prior to removing one of the ports or you can get hurt. I used it for the first time last summer and it was great. I had a leak in valve stem on highway. replaced the core, pumped up the tire and was off in 5 minutes. I carry a 50 foot coil air hose from wall mart.
