Air compressor

Any know f we have a connection to the compressed air via a quick disconnect? I have a 400BH and thought we did but it's propane... Not good to fill pool toys! Wrong size too for a reason I'm sure.

In ours, the air is in the gererator area up front, the propane one is in a rear bay just ahead of the water service door.

Like NO3put said, slide open your generator, duck down, look up and to the right. There's the brass air quick connect.

Upper right firewall above the generator..... In front of area where steering wheel is.... It may not have the quick connect on it... Mine didn't..... If not, it will be a piece with six plugs screwed into it.... Remove one of the plugs, buy a quick connector and install..... Just make sure you have emptied the air tank BEFORE you unscrew one of the plugs or you might get a really big surprise.....

Anyone have an idea what kind of psi the system can produce? Will it inflate a tire on the RV?

Thanks

I've tryed to top off the tires using the onboard air, a slow process but will works however you need to keep your engine running. It's great to kids toys etc. You air presure gages will let you know about how much presure you have.

X2 to being a slow process for topping off MHZ tires. It would be good to have a compressor with a pressure about 30 lbs above the pressure you are trying to reach. That makes the filling go faster. Unfortunately, if say you want 110 lbs in your tires, the pressure out of the MH isn't going be too much higher. A trick to get the MH pressure up, is to deplete some air. One way is to mash on the brakes several times (of course with engine running). This depletes air and causes the compressor to build up air to its limit. Then you top your tires. Hope it works for you!

X3 on the slow. But since the normal working pressure of the air system is around 135 lbs when the governor "blows off" you will easily go to 110+ lbs.
I do it all the time.

Boowho??

Thanks for the info. And FYI, mine did come with a quick connect. I wonder why some didn't get one?
