Is this connection for air hose to fill tires?

Hi. Just got a 2015 Legacy M340kp. Learning about the importance of checking tire pressure before every trip.

I was about to order the Viair a lot of people recommended and a friend told me he had an air hose quick connect next to the diesel generator under the front hood.

I never found any mentions in the forums but looked today and saw this...

Is this suitable for adding air to tires?

Yes and no. In my case the pressure is not high enough to inflate my tires fully. Tires rated at 110 but pressure tops out at 105. And the last five or so pounds takes forever plus the main engine has to be running the whole time.

I bought one of those biscuit nail gun 110 compressors thinking I could plug it into the 110 converter that came from the factory but, the converter did put out enough watts to run it. Ended up with a Vair it works good for a 12V power but since you have a gen set a small 110 would work good. I bought an air pressure regulator from harbor freight. I use a clip on tire chuck, set the pressure and walk away to do other things when the compressor kicks off the tire is full. Now I have a T and can air all 4 tires at one time on my Jeep after being aired down on the trails all day. One of those nail gun compressors is probably cheaper than a Vair.
