I use a Ryobi 18v portable air compressor works great has set psi feature and forget inflates to set psi and turns itself off - and fast fill for air mattress - yes it not very fast for a car tire or RV tire if empty but work fine for motorcycle - but if only topping off or in an emergency work great to 120 psi - have used it for 0ver 2years now and is small enough I never leave home without itClick image for larger version

I use a Ryobi One + 18 volt compressor. I have a couple of 18 volt tools I use and all use the same batteries. Ryobi makes good quality tools and the one + system is available at Home Depot.

The compressor has a setting you can adjust so I set it to 50 pounds, hook it to the tire and turn it on. When the proper pressure is reached it shuts off. I use it for my truck tires and for blowing water lines when necessary also. I always have a spare battery on charge so a dead battery isn't an issue. It is also lighter in weight than most compressors are.


I should have read all the posts. Ssame one as shown above.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll be looking into a 120v type since we have a generator built into the 5th wheel and a inverter built into the truck.

I would use a 12volt.
Unless you have a really, really large inverter in the truck.

So look into the Ryobi system. Also get the 1/2 " I'm[act. Plenty of power to remove lug nuts on your tires and to run the rear stabilizers in and out.

With your generator nd inverter it would be easy to keep your batteries charged. Take a look at all the things you can run off of the Ryobi One+ batteries. Not a whole lot you can't do with it.

Search Results for¬*ryobi one ¬*at The Home Depot

I love their system and use it around the house all the time.
