Air Supension Compressor

Looking to see if anyone has upgraded to a new compressor. I have a 79' 28 foot Excella Motorhome. Looking for the part others used that worked well and where you bought it. This is the current one in it.

There have been a bunch of posts on compressors, but the search function here isn't working for me like it used to. Anyhow, I recall one post on a Viair compressor that sounded good. Amazon sells them, As an alternative, member Tevake was able to buy a rebuild kit from the manufacturer for his original compressor and make it work.

I have an extra one I could sell. Not sure what it's worth.

I used the twin cylinder model as I replaced my one steel 5 gallon tank with two aluminum 5 gallon tanks. The two cylinder pumps enough air for air tool use. Overkill? Yes! Most people get by with Vairs.

Depending what you are asking I may be interested in purchasing as a spare.
