When I initially installed mine in my old Chevy 2500 I did not use any onboard air, just had the valves accessible via the rear wheel wells. I would use the bike pump we carried with us to inflate them and it worked very well.
I ended up getting a good deal on an onboard system and mounted it under the bed of the truck back towards the bumper. I did like having the control of adjusting the bags to match the road conditions on longer trips. But more times than not I'd put them at a set pressure and keep them there.

I dont have to adjust air pressure,the leveling valve does that for me.When I drop the trailer on the pin,the truck sets dow about 3".Within a couple minutes the compressor kicks on and returns the truck to its correct ride hieght.When we disconnect, the truck raises about 4", and in a minute or so, the leveling valve bleeds air off the bags to restore proper ride hight.

I had airbags installed on my truck for almost 2 years before I did the Airlift wirelessAir. Wish I did it sooner. No screwing with a pump or compressor, just push the buttons. So much better.

My compressor, manifold, and relay are all installed in an upside down ammo can mounted under the right front of the bed. Watertight (other than a breather) and protected from salt and road debris. Intake filter is mounted in the engine compartment.
