I set the output pressure to 40 PSI (so as to not blow things up) and this has the reserve capacity to do the whole job effortlessly. This thing never leaves the garage. I just run a couple hundred feet of air hose to the place where the camper is parked.
Other than maybe running air tools, I don't know what you can't do with the Viair compressor. I've been fulltime with mine for a couple of years ago and haven't ever felt the need for anything more.

Vixen Air 5 Gallon (18 Liter) Steel Tank with Dual 200 PSI Black Compressor Onboard System/Kit for Suspension/Train Horn 12V VXO4852DB

This is the system i'm looking to add in the next month, I am very paranoid of breaking down, This system so i'm told, will be able to run an impact gun and a air jack along with airing up my 35's if needed. Plus if that doesn't work I have every towing option/road side ass't card/plan.
Yes it's over kill but I don't want to be broken down, plus i spent about a year upgrading most hoses, on my f250.

VIAIR

You just canít go wrong with a VIAIR unless you plan on needing compressed air for a pneumatic tool.

Ok on my pick-up, tundra, I have airlift bags with wireless remote. 11 years now. Had to have manifold controller rebuilt once and on third compressor now.($30-40 each) not bad.
Motor home has Firestone ride right bags with manual Schrader valves only. Not convenient at all.

That's what I'm hoping for with my new viair when I start traveling soon.

I have the Viair 450P-RV. It is a great compressor. It handles my 123 PSI tires with ease. The RV model also comes with 60 foot of coiled hose. I mounted in my battery tray since I don't need 4 batteries.
