I have a new 5er since January. Most of this is due to my last 5er that the brakes barely worked and towing a 20,000 race car hauler around the country for 4 years. The hauler had triple axles with brakes on all 3, but 20K is still 20K.

What I did is replumbed the water input system. Had a leak on the city hook up then another leak, so I replaced it all, fixed it so all I have to do to flush the black water tank is turn on a valve( installed a check valve between the potable and non-potable) and corrected the winterizing set up( the factory plumbed the tube for the anit-freeze on the outlet from the pump so you would have to use another pump to fill the system) teed it in before the pump with two valves( one on each line) so the pump will be winterized too.

I got a Viair 400p-rv compressor last Friday. Only used it very briefly (to fill one tire before pulling the 5er to get all the tires replaced). Seemed to work great so far.
Will use it to top off all the tires evenly, including the truck tires, one morning soon.

They're not cheap, but they're lightweight, compact, and powerful. My 450P will push air into my tires where my 3 gallon Porter Cable Pancake compressor couldn't. My Porter Cable topped out at about 112psi and that was under duress. Where my Viair happily goes up to 125psi.
