I use the VIAIR 45053 for tire requirements. It does up to 150 lbs. Also I have installed an on-board compressor and tank VIAIR 10002, but use it for other purposes, not tire air. it is set to maintain 120lbs, but is probably a bit light for tires.

I purchased a Masterflow MF-1050 Tsunami High Volume 12v 150 psi portable compressor from PEP Boys. Cost me about $40 with a coupon. I just looked one up on ebay for $50. I have a large 5th wheel with large tires requiring 100 psi. I check pressure before a trip and before returning. Tops off quickly. I also purchased a 50 ft air compressor hose from harbor freight to reach from front of truck to camper wheels while it is hooked up

I run a 350C from Viair for inflating any tire or air tool and also for the airbags i put on the coach. I stuck mine next to my water pump and have a 2 gal tank mounted in first bay next to accumulator 2gal tank for water. I recommend a compressor rated at 100% duty cycle. Those 33% ones are just asking for trouble. Over the years ive gone through a couple that werent rated 100% duty. When i need air...i want it to work ...and work every time. Noce and small and powerful. 1.53cfm at 100psi so it never takes long to get to 125psi (which is what my tank suto switch is rated at). Like most things never pushing them to the limit makes them last . I mounted a retractable reel in a side bay and the 50ft hose will reach any wheel on rv or toad.

I really like my Ryobi 18V cordless, but I also carry a Ryobi 18V drill to run the stabilizers down. So same battery. 150 psi max. Unfortunately, the gauge isn't great, but I carry a gauge for checks anyway.

I have the Home Depot Husky dual power compressor. 12v or AC power. It’s compact and has saved my bacon.

Your profile says you have an FR3. If so, no 12 volt compressor will do what you need, especially for your tires. A good one may work, but will really struggle to air your tires up.
Just get a good 120 volt compressor that can run off your generator if your on the road, or off an outlet when your hooked up at a campground.
Any good one that puts out at least 125 psi will do the job. I carry a Porter Cable CMB15. Puts out 150 psi, very good quality, very light weight and compact. You can find them online from numerous sources for under 100 bucks. Used it on my class c Lexi, 75 psi in tires with no problems. My good friend has a Thor Ace which is similar to the FR3, and he carries one. No problem getting his psi up to where it belongs.
I also carry a 12 volt compressor, but in my Subaru toad along with a plug kit. But the Subi only needs 32 psi
