I purchased this unit from Lowe's for our Beaver, Diesel Pusher and used it ever since. Great little compressor that will fit in a cargo bay or back of our 2500 HD Chevy. Light weight and holds it's 155 lb for days. Tool pressure can also be adjusted for gentle jobs.

Is there a minimum requirement for CFM or gallon size of tanks to consider?

Thanks
I purchased a small Ryobi compressor from Home Depot which uses the lithium ion battery from my portable drill. It actually tops off my Georgetown 33ft tires pretty well and is small and very light and convenient.

Hooked up to Shore Power or run your Generator. Whatever Source you have for AC Voltage. Has to have as a minimum of 150 PSI to inflate Tires to 100 PSI. I had a 125 PSI and it would not inflate My Tires or took very long to do it.

I have the same unit. Never used it so far but it has good reviews and good SCFM compared to most of the same size. The design allows it to stay put and not fall over.......................and right now it's on sale at Lowes for $58 and change! I thought I got a deal before Christmas when I got it for $109!

We bought a little 12v guy on Amazon that works great on 12 volts, but the a guy next to me had one of these from Lowes that looked pretty good. Takes a while to fill a big tire, but it gets the job done and is easy to store.

Since I have a generator and easy access to AC power, in the rear cargo bay, I went with the Sears Craftsman 1.2 Gallon AirBoss™ Oil-Free Air Compressor Here. I can use it for other things around the house as well as in the motor home.

One thing to keep in mind with any compressor is it is better to add air hose than use an extension cord. Extension cords may cause a voltage drop, in both AC and DC powered units, reducing their capability. Adding air hose doesn't have a negative impact...and it is a lot cheaper!

After 2 air compressors from Advance Auto ($60 ea) that both turned out to be junk (stopped working/blew fuse etc.) I gave up and bought an 120 PSI air compressor/jump starter/12V power source/work light combo from West Marine for $120. It works great, is very powerful, and does not need an AC power source to run except for recharging and the charge lasts for a long time. And you can buy a maintenance agreement, then they'll replace it for free if it fails within 2 years, not bad!

Harbor Freight 150psi compressor

I have a 150psi tank compressor from harbour freight. Got it when it was on sale for $99 less a 20% coupon. Works great, not too noisy and fits in one of the smaller cargo bays on my 378. Sure it may not be the quality of some but I don't have to use it very often.....

If you have a Diesel with air brakes, tap onto the air tanks ans cary a 25' hose. No air brakes, get the dc compressor and splice/modify wires to hook to what you have and include enough wire to reach all tires.
Just a suggestion. Hardly anything I own has the original hook ups.

I've got this house brand Kobalt Compressor from Lowes... and all I use it for is my tires. The reason I like this better than the pancake models is that you can stand it up vertically inside your storage bin and it fits perfectly using only about 6" of space.
It is a good quality item that goes for $129 but which also goes on sale for $99 (mine also came with a hose & hookup kit for that price.
