I have the Air Lift Load system for my rear bags. About the same price as the expensive Vair. Gauge up front on dash with push button adjustment. Always know pressure in bags. Have a Porter Cable 1.5 electric compressor in rear storage plugged into Dyson outlet and 50' of hose for sunseeker and biketires. Just kick on generator if not connected to 110 power.

I use a bicycle air pump for the air bags. The bags are small so a lot of volume is not required.

We have a Campbell Hausfeld 12V inflater that is used for "Bike's/Air shocks/ Bag's/ Truck and RV tires"! Even used it to pump up a Class A Bus tire,that had NO spare,took a while but "Did the Job"! Ours is 20+ years old and still going! Youroo!! They still can be purchased for under 50$

I tried using a 12v pump, but a HF bike pump was a simple solution. 5-10 pumps and done. Took more time to unpack the 12v pump and setup than to use this pump.
HF for $10.

I have one of these also.I got it at Tractor Supply.
Mine is rechargeable battery so easy to use it has a spot light built in so it's a lightweight handy tool for the road

If you do go 12v you should pull from the battery. The viair will do the 85 psi tires....

I have a pancake compressor from HF and a 25 foot coil hose with quick connects plus truck tire chuck with gauge. Less than $75 for the pile. It sits in the compartment and can reach outside outlet, hose reaches every where without removing from compartment. Also handy around home.
