I got a 50 footer. Seems about right for moving around the entire coach.
One thing it took a while for me to learn though. A regular air chuck that you have to hold on the stem makes the process long and difficult.
Then I got an air chuck similar to shown below and now it's a breeze.

I also carry a 50' hose. It isn't long enough to reach the toad but I can easily reach all the Moho tires.

This is the system I use. I also have 50 feet of additional air hose I had until I got fed up trying to use the air chuck.

Does that lock on in some way? I have one very similar to it...

Yes it does kind of. Holding it slightly to the side locks it on. Release side pressure and it pulls right off. Works very well

Thanks. I'll play around with mine and see if it does the same. My Viair came with a locking connector that I flip a piece and it latches onto the valve stem. But, I still use my straight/dual chuck a fair amount.

Originally had one of those with the piece that flips that is supposed to lock on. I still had to hold it on with my hand until it got sore. It just wouldn't hold well on my extensions.

I like the screw on fitting that comes with the viair. It works well.
