Portable air compressor?

Give me some recommendations for a portable air compressor I can use for the tires and the airbags. Thanks in advance!

This is what some of us use for the rear air bags.

1987 27ft Tioga (bad brakes / tires)
1998 36ft Discovery (rattles / air leaks)
2005 37ft Monaco Knight (lemon Lawed)
2008 40ft Monaco Diplomat (too big)

12Volt 150 PSI Compact Air Compressor is the one I have used, not fast but priced low. The screw on air chuck was akward and I replaced with a lock on type. The real problem was with the tire valve extentions which didn't seal well with the air chuck, even at the truck stop. Seems the capless extentions don't work well. Also very akward to get in the space allowed by the wheel covers. Still working on it though.

Check with Auto Zone for a Slime compressor. There are several levels of pumps and they are not expensive. I have three different units and they have all worked well over the many years I've used them. IMHO

I went El Cheapo. If is screws up, it's not to expensive to pitch it away. Works pretty good...

12V 100 PSI High Volume Air Compressor

I'm a little too truthful, I guess.

Here is a link to an earlier discussion as well as a link to the model I have. There are many good unit out there-and a lot of junk.
