I didnt even consider that, the weight of those fittings and pipe. They will take a beating for sure with road vibration. Ill look at that. I mounted the whole compressor on a piece of treated 1x6 so it can slide out all in one piece. Would hate to damage the exhaust port on the compressor head. Maybe something mounted from the bottom up rather than top down.

Air line off compressor

Hey Mayco, I only used the line & check valve that came with the compressor coming off the compressor outlet and, check valve at the end at the tank. I used a simple non adjustable switch that controls the relay. Take a look at my drop box to see my complete air line set up for the rig for some ideas.

Thanks maxman, I did the same. Only one check valve and one air line leading to the tank. Used Viairs 85-105 pressure sw relay combo, non adjustable that Im aware of. I did have the check valve located in the wrong spot when I first put it together, in my system it needed to be the first fitting off the compressor. It seems to be working well. Its been just to cold here to get underneath and do a thorough leak test on all the junctions. Its bleeding down after about 3 days so Ive got a small leak somewhere. But its pretty much good to go as it is.

Yours looks like a very nice and clean install. On my 310 the transfer switch is located on the right side of that little compartment with the compressor so it didnt leave me much room in there for the compressor. I still need to get in there and get some wire ties on to clean it up a bit.
