Generator compartment.

I was having the tires on the Berk filled with nitrogen this weekend and being a type A, I was poking around the generator cavity. I noticed what appears to be a quick connect for an airline on the firewall. I've looked through all the manuals and can't find anything. Any ideas?

That is your compressed air... Or at least it is in my 400bh

Paul,
Yes, it is a quick connect for an air line. You can use it to fill your tires or anything that needs air. You just need to have the engine running in order to keep the pressure in the tanks up. There is also a quick connect for propane in the passenger side compartment that is just ahead of the large door that is ahead of the rear tires. It is up and to the left.

Two things...... The connectors for the propane and the air chuck are NOT at all compatible, so remember that if you try to buy hose fittings for either.

Second..... IF you do get an air hose for filling tires, etc PLEASE have a really good grip on the hose when you release the chuck coupling. 125 lbs of pressure will blow that hose out of there like a shotgun.

If you're not holding on really tight, you could easily lose teeth, an eyeball or something. Trust me, it truly is like a cannon!!

Boowho??

I moved the air horns out of the way, to provide space for hanging 50 ft of air hose next to the MH's air outlet.

I've got one of those coiled hoses and I store it in the compartment where the generator slide release is located

Don't use it to fill your tires. The air that comes out of it is not compatible with the nitrogen you put in your tires. I think it's a different kind of nitrogen.
