2012 378TS New Mod

New air compressor installed. This will come in handy dry camping for quads, dirt bikes, air mattresses and anything else that needs air. Hose reel next.

Great idea, use to have one in my old bounder for the same thing. It is also great for keeping tire pressure up etc.

Looks great ! Just got Oiless pancake compressor from Northern tool and hope to install this weekend in my 2009 Georgetown 374. Trying to get ready for my extended 60 day vacation out West.

Just remember........

If the standard air hose won't reach to where you need it, get an additional air hose extension to make the distance. Most air compressors won't work on a standard electric extension cord because of the amperage they draw at start-up, and tend to trip the breaker.

we carry a Craftsman similar to your compressor. Ran a 110 volt line from the other side of the coach (compressor is a compartment on drivers side) and purchased a 50ft hose from Harbor Freight. Now I can reach all the tires and not move the compressor. I check the tires every time I move after an extended stay.

Remember Petey it takes a little time to get up to 90 lbs with these compressors. It will work.
