I carry a B&D Booster pack with onboard compressor, light, jumper cables, and inverter. Works great.

have you ever used this on a high pressure tire?

My experience with these type compresors is they are only good to around 40 psi. they just don't develop enough pressure to fill up a heavier tire.

My truck runs 65 psi, the trailer 75.

For those of you blowing fuses on the 12v outlets anyone try one of these? Plug it into the 7 pin trailer plug and utilize I believe 20 or 30 amp 12v circuit for charging the camper while in tow?

We use these for filleting fish on the tailgate!
Well duh! Had one of those for years. Only used it for my five way boat wire and 12vt q- beam. Never considered it for sir compressor. Thanks.

I tried something like this from Costco/BJs. My first problem was that I couldn't use it for the inner dual tire on the truck. The second problem was jeep said- it just couldn't push the tire pressure needed for the tires.

I ended up buying this:
Porter-Cable 3.5-Gal. 135 psi Pancake Compressor-PCFP02003 at The Home Depot

I throw it into the basement of the fiver. I'm SOL if I'm on the road and need it, but it works when I'm at home and at campgrounds w/ electricity.

I'm jealous of the Viair onboard systems.

My tires run 80psi on truck and trailer. Have no problem bringing either up to pressure. Would not want to fill entire tire though.

I did a post with pictures of what I did on my Wildcat to provide 12v exterior outlets so I could use my 12v air compressor to inflate tires and use my 12v impact wrench to remove them when changing them on the road. Here's a link to that post: http://www.wildcatcamperforum.com/t5101-12v-exterior-outlets

That is good to know. Perhaps this unit is a bit heavier duty than the ones I have seen/tried in the past.

Good stuff. Yours is definitely heavier duty than mine, then. Mine struggled with 65-70psi in my truck tires.

But, I also just re-read the OP's subject line and they're only looking for 50psi. Seems like it could be a decent choice for them.
