I have the $75 jump starter with compressor from costco. It works great and it's small. I haven't gone over 80 lbs with it though so I can't vouch for that.

Just a suggestion. Hardly anything I own has the original hook ups.
We too had connections for an air hose on our diesel pusher, but we couldn't adjust the pressure for blowing up air mattresses or blowing out water lines. 150 lbs is too much for those types of use. That's why we purchased the Kobalt from Lowe's. Great little compressor.

Had one of those but it took a long time to air up any tire I had on my Georgetown. You would have to start and let the pressure build up then put in a couple of pounds and then repeat the procedure. I got tired of holding the Air Chuck to the Valve Stem. So in all reality you need something that can produce 150 lbs. and have enough storage, Air Tank capacity, so that you don't have to spend hours adding Air to 6 Tires. Looks like everyone has an idea but spending a lot ot time doing this job is not for me. My arm and fingers get tired more easily now days.

Harbor Freight sells a nice & cheap inflator tool w/clamp on chuck that makes things a lot easier for $10 or less.

If you want the best, go with the Viair 450P RV - 150 PSI, 1.80 CFM, all metal, mostly stainless steel. Pricey at about $300. But you owe it a look if you want the high-end. Sold at most RV Web sites and even at Walmart.

I bought a Stanley Fatmax which croaked trying to top off my tires. Went to Lowes and got one of their "pancake" type compressors, works great, stowes in one of the bays on our FR SS 3170DS.

I bought this 120 volt AC compressor for these reasons from Home Depot.
1. Large 3 gallon storage
2. Max 125 psi
3. It is a oil bath compressor and last longer than those dry compressors.
4. Builds up to 125 psi quickly
I picked it up for under $100 and have been using it for 3 years now.
Yes it's larger but that is what you need for 22.5" tires
