Amyone try one of those Puma 12v air compressors? They are kinda on the big side and draw a lot of current but seems like a good price..

Here is a link to one on Ebay:
Puma 12 Volt 1 5 Gallon Oil Less Air Compressor Free Shipping Oiless 12V | eBay

Not a problem along side the road when you have a inverter that provides 120V. My 1000 watt inverter will power my residential fridge running for 18 hours it will power my 120V compress or few minutes.

I topped up my tire with the leak tonight - 108psi to 125psi in 3-4 minutes. My prior Porter Cable 3 gallon pancake compressor wouldn't push air into my tire up over 118 psi.

I use Viair, we have several of them that we use around the farm. If you don't have ready access to 120v it is the only way to go.

I understand that, but most people don't have one, so that's not an option. Everyone has 12 volts all the time.

I have 2 I would like to get rid of. Though I guess I should keep one for the car.

My TT did not have a generator. The Viair and a plug kit saved me from a lot of grief more than once.

Jumper cables would've made a good extension cord in a pinch, vice kinking your hose.
