We added a 12vdc utility outlet in one of the rear cargo compartments so we can plug in a 12v extension cord for light or fan when we are sitting outside the trailer. Inexpensive, easy to wire in, easy to reach, out of the weather, and isn't ever in the way. It would power your 12v air compressor.

I should have said too, we don't use a 12v compressor - our 120v one is slow enough with E-rated tires, a 12v one would take even longer. Just pull up a chair, open a beverage, and enjoy the time if you are adding more than 5pounds to a tire. Still, the 12vdc compressor will do in a pinch and is far faster than most road service arrival times.

Perfect - that will be an easy solution then - pics and instructions would be great.

I'll consider that. As opposed to some form of very lengthy extension to trailer batteries or to some interior cigarette type outlet in trailer (assuming one is included in new AS - I would think they do)

Yeah - this may be a basic quick option - especially if my trailer already has easy access to an outlet on exterior stock anyway

Tools +Rivet Kit

[QUOTE=BAB;1334661]I have only had my trailer for a bit over a year, and I have just about everything on the list....and a whole lot more. I've even used the cool Airstream rivet kit a couple of times. Expensive, but when I needed it, I needed it,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Rivet kit, now that is something I thought one may rarely need and what do you know , we put on a couple of thousand miles on road trips this year and lost 3 rivets on the lower front storage compartment hatch. We had the repair done at the dealer , but still long term. One really never has too many tools especially when your out between no where .
